How to Remove a Birfield Joint (The fast way) aka The Camo Method Toyota 4x4 Solid Axle
This is the fastest way to access a Birfield joint. This method removes the knuckle as an entire assembly from the Toyota soild or live axle (1979-1985 U.S. trucks). Because the knuckle can be removed an an entire unit you don't lose any of your wheel bearing pre-load. This method works great on the trail if you break a birfield and need to replace it. If you're looking for bomb-proof replacement birfields, this is the only place to go: http://www.longfieldsuperaxles.com/products.php?product=27-SPLINE-BIRFIELD Bobby Long's "Longfield Super Axles" The "Camo Method" is named after a moderator on Pirate 4x4. I don't know if he actually came up with it, but we've always called it the "Camo Method".
Project Trail Toy 2 of 2
Finally ready to post #2. Picks up where the first one left off. Spring of '09, buttoning up the solid axle swap and dual transfer case install. Includes some quick clips of the first time it moved on it's own power since the transformation. Moving on, there are some stills of my home fabbed tube-work including sliders, front bumper, and an internal cage, all completed within 1 week of this video post. Finally vids of our 5/1/10 trip to Tuttle Creek where my dad gets to pilot the Toy for the first time. Enjoy and don't forget to comment/ rate/ subscribe! Song is "Stinkfist" by Tool.
