Multi colored Toyota wears teeth off of Lock Right Locker, in the front axle. The front axle has 4.30 gears, Lock Right locker, Longfield axle shafts, and Trail Gear drive flanges. All being pushed by a 22RE, 5 speed, and dual cases. The truck returns to the obstacle with a Detroit Locker.
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:
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
02 Ford Ranger Lock Right Install Before and After
Spent the day installing lock right locker, needless to say, I'm pretty
satisfied with the results. It now gets full posi and doesn't make too much
noise or wheel scrub.
Tip. Read the Manual front to back before starting...this will save you
from having to take the c clip out after basically dropping it into a 3mm
Turbo Supra 4Runner
Crawling in Moab, UT April 2009.
I was having trouble because I didn't have the rear locker wired up. Of
course it doesn't help having wet tires. Unfortunately my baby had to be
sold in order to purchase my FZJ80. Filmed and edited by user russtuff.

Lock Right Locker - Part 1: How it works [HD]
This is my explanation, as I understand it, for how the Richmond Lockright
works. This is model 1830-LR which in Part 2 I'm going to install in my
1998 Ford Ranger 2WD which I often use for Off-Roading Mudding, etc...

JK Breaking axle
Too much bind for Dana 44 parts. Rob makes some junk out of the
passenger's front u-joint and twists the splines on the inner shaft
Internal Locker DIfferential Clutch Action
We often get asked how internal locker conversions work in a differential.
This video demonstrates the basic locking and unlocking action of the side
clutches. Powertrax, LockRight and other units are all very similar in the
way that they operate and have simple installation, and can usually be
installed in less than an hour inside of the existing differential case.
Internal locker conversions install in place of the stock spider gears.

Lock Right Locker - Part 2: Install in Ford Ranger [HD]
This is how I installed my Richmond Lock Right. Includes how I solved the
pin removal problem, and the grinding of the ring gear. I can't say I did
it correctly, or that you should do it like this. This is model 1830-LR
which I install in my 1998 Ford Ranger 2WD which I often use for
Off-Roading Mudding, etc...
This is going to be a similar procedure on most cars and trucks, and nearly
identical for Ford Mustang
V6 which uses the same exact part number.
See Part 1 for my explanation of how it works:
