Thanks to everyone for the info on this.
Have been replacing the seal and reusing the nut without issue on several other vehicles but this is the 1st one causing problems.
Haven't been pulling the carrier to set preload so torque is likely not 100%, but there's only so much I can do on the...
2003 FX4 Level 2 with 8.8, 31 spline rear diff. having trouble with the pinion nut backing out.
Almost looks like oil is running past the threads of the nut causing it to come loose (?)
Tried putting black RTV on the pinion threads and back of nut before torquing down, Worked for a short time...
Is this a 4WD?
If yes then remove the rear drive shaft and take it for a run in 4wd.
Did the shake disappear?
If it's still there then install the rear shaft and remove the front one.
If the shake is still there then save your cash, it's not a driveshaft.
We are talking about vehicles that are approaching 20 years old. Some are newer some are older.
The point is at what age is it considered a classic. Are classic vehicles subject to the same rules as regular cars?
The Vulcan might not have as much power but it's WAY cheaper and easier to work on than the 4.0 SOHC.
I'm doing the chain guides in my SOHC. Had to pull the engine and has way to many TTY specialty bolts. IMHO Vulcan is so much easier...
That or a 5.0.
Did a 5.0 in my other truck (Had a 4.0...
Was looking up torque values for flexplate to crank bolts for the 4.0 SOHC and am getting mixed results from multiple sources.
Some sources say they are TTY and some say they are reusable.
96 - 00 Explorer Workshop manual says
Stage 1: Tighten to 13 Nm (10 lb-ft).
Stage 2: Tighten to 71 Nm...
I was looking at doing the exact same thing when v8 swapping from a 2001 Expo.
I stopped because it looks like some parts are different from 2001 Ranger 4x4 and 2001 Expo.
Main reason I was looking to swap was because I wanted the Expo torsion bars to go with the 5.0.
Everything "looks" the...
Here's what I've got so far with approximate pricing but not sure if they are right.
Can anyone confirm that these are correct for 2001 4.0 SOHC 4x4?
1L2Z-6L266-AA====$30====Ballance Shaft Tensioner (Lower Right)

So I'm pulling the engine from the truck and while I have it out I'm looking to replace all the chain guides. Problem is all I can find is the complete cassettes with chain and sprockets. I know they were available at one time and were way less than a complete cassette.
Engine is 4.0 SOHC 2001...
Got the 4.0 SOHC out of my 2001 Ranger 4x4 and am looking to replace the chain guides while I have it out.
Not replacing the chains or sprockets but just the guides for the Cams, Ballance and Jackshaft.
Does anyone have the Ford part #s for all the chain guides, tensioners, and nylon parts in...
Have completed the 5.0 engine swap from a 2001 Explorer into a 2007 Ranger.
All the mechanical bolted up OK but am having trouble with PATS.
Does anyone have any pointers on how to get the 2007 Ranger body harness & Keys to work with the 2001 Expo engine harness and ECU?
Done allot of...
Gotta replace the steering wheel on my 03 XLT and am wanting to swap in another style wheel with it's matching airbag.
Wanting to go for a wheel from an 04+ Ranger or an 02+ Explorer.
What year airbags are compatible with the 03 Ranger Airbag system?
