Results so far are very encouraging, as what ever parts look suspect in one, are good in the other.
Still need to pull out the tail shafts to make sure the pinion key ways are good.
I had forgotten about the mess.
Still have to decide which torque tube is in better condition at the uni-joint end, but my money is on the 29.
And the grease
Still to be stripped, cleaned, wire brushed and the teeth lightly polished, this crown wheel will be very serviceable with a new set of bearings.
29 tail shaft has very good splines and will look better once the surface rust has been removed.
28 splines are very good.
Hand brake half shafts will need to be de-rusted, straightened, worn areas built up, and then slipped back into brass bushings in the diff housing and brake backing plate. Will be a lot better than the metal to metal they were made with.
