    Hey guys,
    im in desperate need for some tips to get a bent axle out of a t series diff.
    I've tried a rim on backwards as slide hammer, tried that a fair bit actually.
    I've also tried whacking the rim from behind and still no luck

    oh and if anybody has a spare t series axle that I can buy of them that would also be great

    wd40 and keep at it
    if you can chain your diff to a pole, then chain a winch around another and pull on the axle that way

    Got it out, i wedged a crowbar between the axle and the backing plate.

    Surprisingly the axle still looks straight. Diff, does not.
    Is that common? For the diff to bend before the axle?

    So now im on the hunt for another t series..

    If you get no luck on a T series diff and find an S to throw in to get you moving again, I still have the tailshaft you sold me. I used it in my pano for a couple weeks while mine was rebuilt so it's back in my stock-pile, lol. Just thought I'd let you know it's here.

    normally one uses a slide hammer to get an axle out

    Loosening the diff centre bolts/nuts helps too, it straightens the angle up then can slide hammer it off. Don't undo it too much that it flops around though.
