I have another question. Since I am using a foote now do I weld the spider gear son the shaft to the shaft and that pretty much just locked it up or do I need to weld the spider gears on the shaft and weld them to the gears in the bull gear? O and also cant you use a bernzomatic torch and some nickel alloy brazing rod to take place of welding? Wouldnt this cut out worrying about warping the shafts?

You don't actually weld the gear to the axle, If you snap an axle, you couldn't change it then. The gears that spin inside the ring gear(the big gear should have 2 little gears that are mounted inside of it that spin) Just weld these 2 gears(the little ones) to the ring gear(big one) so they won't spin anymore. I am not familiar with the nickel brazing. Somebody mentioned that they built up their cam lobes with the stuff. If they can do that it should be alright in the rearend. I wonder about heating the gears though, I don't know if that will make them brittle or not. I try not to weld anymore on the gears than I have to for fear of making them brittle. Let us know how it goes.     Tom

Those gears are cast and heating them actually helps the weld penetrate better, just make sure after you heat then weld to reheat gradually lowering the temperature, or stick it in an oven after welding and gradually turn it down and then just let it aircool.  But whatever you do DONT cool it down with water.

Also have you tried a spider gear box?




 
This method requires a little grinding for the extra gears to fit.
But when you do this method you need to buy the same spider gears that were originally in bull gear shaft.
Do you just stick the gears in there or do you half to weld them in to keep them there?
