Hey all... I will be getting my 9" rear sandblasted this weekend and want to remove the pot etc.
Looks straight forward but any help on how to do this would be appreciated.
Also, how are the axles removed?
Do I need to worry about sand getting inside?
Don't worry... once painted it will be sent out to be rebuilt by a pro.
PS> it's a 3.25 locking if that matters
Thanks.

you might want to concider having it blasted while it is assembled... when you blast them the sand sticks to everything inside, it turns into a mess thats not fun to clean up

To remove the axles, remove the brake drum and you'll see a hole in the axle end plate. This hole, when you turn the axle, will line up with one of 4 nuts holding the axle backing/retaining plate on. Remove the nuts and the axle should pull out. If it does not, turn the brake drum around, reinstall it backwards on the axle insert a few lugs back onto the studs and use the brake drum as a kind of slide hammer, not too much force however. You need the axles removed first to take out the center section.
