Jeep, Dana and Chrysler Differentials: How to Rebuild & Upgrade the Chrysler 8 1/4, 8 3/4, Dana 44 & 60 & AMC 20

The Jeep, Dana & Chrysler Differentials how-to manual, by Larry Shepard, provides all of the necessary step-by-step information to help you tear down, rebuild, and upgrade many popular Dana, Chrysler and BorgWarner differentials, including: the Chrysler 8.25, 8.75, Dana 44, Dana 60 and AMC 20 differentials.

These differentials have been used in millions of Chrysler, Jeep and AMC vehicles during the past 40 years. The Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip differentials are commonly used in high performance vehicles such as the Charger, Barracuda, Challenger and other muscle cars made by Chrysler. The Dana 44 and AMC 20 differentials are utilized in Jeep CJs and Jeep Cherokees.

The author, Larry Shepard, has written several outstanding DIY manuals, currently available at TheMotorBookstore. Larry is a long time Chrysler engineer at the Mopar Performance division, which is the high performance parts division of Chrysler. His expertise is masterfully leveraged in this how to guide to provide the tips, advice and step by step instructions you need to get your project done right, the first time.

This "workbench book" style do-it-yourself manual includes detailed black and white illustrations and photographs to provide an excellent visual example for each and every step. The Workbench Series manual also provides tips and guidance on topics such as: special tools, high performance upgrades, optimal ratio selection, critical inspections, torque fasteners, precision measurements, saving money and much, much more.

Note: This manual is a print on demand by the publisher and thus has black and white photos and diagrams. It's harder to get; however, we keep this manual in stock and offer Free and Fast Shipping to our continental US48 customers.
