How to Rebuild the Dana 36 Carrier

Chapter 9 from 1957 CORVETTE RESTOMOD by Steven E. Michael
Author Steven E. Michael walks you through the entire restoration and build process of a 1957 RestoMod.

Using the 1957 Corvette as the starting point, the chassis is upgraded with C4 Corvette (year 1996) suspension and steering components.  Add a 1999 Corvette LS1 power plant and Tremec T56 manual overdrive transmission, and this will be one potent hot rod.

Written for the beginner, by a beginner, the chapters speak in easy to understand language and take extra care in explaining the intricacies of restoring and modifying the C1 Corvette.

Each chapter has detailed color photos with pointers to help illustrate exactly what to look for and what to do.  Unlike any other car manual you have ever seen, this book will take the fear factor out of Corvette hot rodding.

Chapter 9 explains the scary world of "pumpkins".  Written by a beginner for beginners, this e-chapter shows you how to disassemble and rebuild Corvette Dana 36 rear axles.

This detailed chapter describes how to replace axle, differential, and pinion bearings, cups, and oil seals.  All in easy to understand language.

Then it shows you how to "set up" the gearing to precise measurements.  Most do-it-yourselfers would just buy a new carrier - at three times the price of fixing a used one!

With 148 detailed photos and descriptive pointers, this chapter is 63 pages long and contains 56 specific steps any novice can follow and master.  Most manuals talk over your head, but not this one.  This easy to understand volume was written with the beginner in mind, because it's written by a beginner!

NEW!  Chapters are now packaged for the front and rear of the C4 Corvette - and at discounts from single chapter purchases!
