- Knuckles MUST have proper preparation with all rust and contaminants removed. Flap discs seem to do a decent job for us for finish cleaning.
- Preheat the knuckle to 400°F and hold at that temperature at least 10 minutes. If using torches do not concentrate the heat in one spot too much.
- While the knuckle is still at the 400°F insert the threaded steel slug from the top side of the knuckle and make sure it's retained fully seated.
- Weld the top perimeter of the slug to the knuckle.
- Weld the bottom perimeter of the slug to the knuckle.
- Post heat/maintain to 400°F for at least 5 minutes.
- We typically peen the welded area at this point. Some do this and some do not.
- Thoroughly wrap the knuckle in moving blankets or insultation to slow the cooling process down to help prevent cracking. Another common method is burying them in cat litter or "speedy dry".
- Prep and paint/coating the knuckles as desired.
- Install the lower ball joint in the knuckle.
- Install the knuckle on the axle inner C and tighten the lower ball joint to 150 ft*lb.
- Push the bronze piece into the inner C and align the flat with the machined flat on the inner C.
- Make sure the welded in slug is PERFECTLY clean on the ID of any welding splatter, dust, dirt, debris, etc. If you don't the shoulder bolt WILL gall into the slug and it will be "game over".
- Lubricate the shoulder bolt and counterbore with grease (keep the threads clean of any lube!!!), apply Loctite 263 to the threads, and install it.
- Torque the top shoulder bolt to 200 ft*lb.
