I'm finally getting around to rebuilding my front passenger hub after tearing it apart on the trail back in February. I got it all torn apart and when I went to take the axel out of the housing the birfield came right out. I thought that was strange. Come to find out there was not snap ring on the axle shaft. I'd really like to get it put back together, but I don't wanna wait a week for a new snap ring clip. Anyone know what size I should get from the autoparts store, or am I stuck waiting for the part?

Maybe the previous owner did a Martack modification on the axle shaft eliminating the need for the snap ring.

No tacks on any of the splines, but I guess I could do that myself and put it back together.

I mar-tacked it. Didn't want to wait. Thanks for planting that seed.
