I have never worked on one. Is is fairly easy to put back together? I guess you have to do what you have to do.

its fairly simple to take the clutches out, you just take the cross pin out then remove the spring thing and spiders.

i'll be the judge as to if they need to be replaced. the spring has some wear on it so i assume so do the friction plates.

i was talking about the rebuild kit on ebay that he posted.

everything needs to be cleaned, theres metal shavings on a few of the parts, ill bring it up to your work tomorrow so you can look at it.

i guess the guy snapped an axle shaft, idk.
