1962 Parisienne Shock Stud / Trailing Arm Bolt Questions


Now that I've pounded the broken one out, and cut the other one out with the sawz-all, is there an easier way to remove these?

They also fasten the trailing arms to the rear end. I'm thinking of keeping the rear end as a spare, but if it ever has to be changed, it's a beast of a job getting these shock stud / trailing arm bolts out. I don't have any spares now, which means I'd have to be ever so delicate with the ones on the convertible.

If a guy gets really lucky, maybe the differential doesn't wipe out the housing when it blows. Anyone ever had one of these diffs blow apart? Care to share the experience? Curious to know how important it is to keep a spare housing.

I blew up my rear end by shifting it into gear while spinning at much higher than sensible RPMs. no  Grenade!  The housing and axles survived, just had to replace the pumpkin.

 Interesting adventure. Nice to hear the axles and housing survived. You still had to contend with persnickety backing plate bolts. I had to pull my axles to get pounding room for the sledge. Seven of the eight bolts came out easy. The last one spun on the inside. Bit of a PITA, I must admit. Tomorrow I'll put the rear back together and get it ready for storage.
