Re: 66 toro driver axle rebuild pt 2

The outer boot was replaced -- the inner boot was "conditioned" and the axle was cleaned up and lubed.

66 Toro Axle Boot Rebuild

Just wanted to share my axle experience with the Toro Community. I was told that my outer passenger boot was ripped. That set me on the path to a) find a garage that would remove the axles (I decided to have both axles done). Once I found a garage that would remove the axles -- and allow the car to ...

66 Toro passenger axle pt. 2

I wanted to add this additional data. I have a 66 passenger axle (with the damper) see the photo below. But it is missing the piece that mates to the drivetrain.

And let me add, the shop I went said the inner boot was all ripped up -- they suggested I replace the axle, the ordered a couple but none fit.

Toronado Drive Report video

The AIR pump is on the driver's side right below the ps pump. The belt goes around the harmonic balancer, the air pump, the ps pump and the water pump. The ...
