Ok. That shit is over. I'm ready to get this thing done! :-)
So much so, that I'm currently overlooking a situation that I'm not happy about with my hubs getting cut to accept my axles. The guys cut the splined area down within the hub to make clearance for the non-splined space. I guess. I haven't talked to them about it, but I basically got cheated out of almost a full half inch of splined space that should have been engaged with one another. This would mean buying new hubs all over again and sending them to the same guys (only ones I've found with the broaching bar for the 30 spline G6 axle).
But I haven't had a chance to call them yet since the discovery, so maybe they have a legit reason. But looking back and forth between the two parts it looks pretty obvious. Someone measured wrong and cut it too deep on the lathe. No one offered up the screw up prior to shipping it back to me. So we'll see what thy have to say for themselves soon enough.
So without further ado, the requisite pics.
Thanks for your time. Hope some of the info in these pages helps others on similar quests.
