Re: Limits of Yukon thru-bolt aluminum case?

they have a nice Aluminum Bolt through with a support bolt for the Ring gear. I helped a friend who ran them and it is like anything else. They held up good but tire shake would kill them. Then again I have not seen a rear end that didn't get hurt when that happens ;)

Anyone know if the Yukon case is American made or Chinese or?

I have a Moser thru bolt and it is good quality.

I had MW stuff before and it is great quality.

If anyone needs the pinion depth set up tool that only works on MW center sections, I have one. Makes changing ring and pinion easier. The reason it only works on MW is because they are the only brand that has a specific standard measurement point. Others are all over the place. Another point for MW quality.

Yes, Speedmaster is the new name for Pro Comp. Every few years you need to change your name to avoid your previous bad reputation. JMO.

Things to remember cases generally don't break they deflect allowing excess clearance and the gears break first and then the case can fail.

Tire shake and not lifting when it starts is the main gear killer....HP is just easier to quantify (by vendors) for sales purposes.

Axle failure or gear failure can be a lot more expensive than just replacing the broken parts.

Poorly meshed/loose gears will break no matter their size of quality.

Gears are like most parts they have a finite life and routine inspection, or after a weekend of tireshake is a good way to save tracks money on concrete barriers.
