the proper way to service a mack top loader axle?


Recommended Posts

i have heard a few different ways to service the mack rears,,,whats the proper way to do so on a rd tri-axle dump 4.64 gears...i just replaced the forward drive carrier and i have heard not to fill the top of the axle with oil that it gets thrown up to the top from the bottom with a sling gear...there would be a point then where this runs dry before the oil is slung up there...no? also is it ok to put the power divider in while moving or is it better to to this while completly stopped

Unless mack rears are fundamentally different from vendor rears, from what I understand, as long as the axles aren't slipping engaging at low speed will not hurt it....like diff locks, if they're slipping and you hit the lock, the shock load will potentially destroy the lockers and associated components......

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part....
