930 FLOATER INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING!!! DO NOT EVER PRESSURE WASH ANYWHERE NEAR
YOUR FLOATERS. IF YOU SPRAY WATER INSIDE THE FLOATER
YOUR BEARINGS AND RACES WILL RUST TOGETHER AND WILL
1. Press in studs and races if we haven't already
done that for you. If you don't have access to a
press, we will press your studs and races in free of
charge. Be sure the races are pressed all the way in.
2. Inspect and install spindle on rear arm. If you remove the
spindle from the arm you may want to sent it off to crack
check. Grind off about two (2) threads of the 3/8" x 5/8"
spindle bolts. Use new 3/8" AN washers and RED
LOCTITE!!! Torque these bolts to 45 lbs-ft. Make sure
you install the right-threaded spindle on the passenger
side and the left-threaded spindle on the driver side!!!!
3. Inspect the bearings and races. Make sure there is no
rust or other junk on the races or in the bearings. Grease
the bearing. We use Chevron Delo grease. Make sure
the grease squeezes through the bearing and grease the
races on the hub lightly before installing the bearing.
4. Inspect your rear seal. Make sure the rubber
squeezes freely and doesn't hit the lip of the seal.
Clean the surface where the seal pounds into the hub.
AFTER you have put in the greased bearing, pound the
seal in carefully. Make the seal even with the top surface
of the hub.
5. Clean and inspect your brake rotor. Make sure there
are no hairline cracks. Make sure the surface that gets
bolted against the hub is clean. You may need to sand
off any rust and sharp edges. Install the rotor. Use RED
LOCTITE!!! Make sure all of the rotor bolts are clean.
6. Grease the outer race and install the hub assembly onto the
spindle on your rear arm. Put the outboard bearing into the hub.
Clean any excess grease off the spindle threads. Install the
spindle nut using a 3" spanner wrench. Make sure the pinch bolt
is fairly tight or else the spindle nut might skip a thread. Do
not be afraid to tighten the spindle nut past hand tight. We
even use a hammer to make sure it is really tight. Also,
make sure to tighten the pinch bolt down as tight as possible
after you have tightened down the spindle nut. This is a little
difficult as it is a tight space but use a long handled allen
wrench and let it bend a little.
7. Clean and inspect brake calipers. Check the brake pads.
Use the pre-drilled bolts provided, new 3/8" AN washers,
and RED LOCTITE!!! When installed, safety wire the bolts.
8. Clean and inspect the drive plate, v-seals, o-rings, and CV
cups. You may have to clean the CV cup surfaces with sand
paper so they are smooth. Tap the 1/2" dowel pins into the CV
cup lightly. Line up the dowel pins and insert CV cup into the
drive plate. Bolt the drive plate to the CV cup with the 3/8" x 3/4"
12 Point bolts. Use RED LOCTITE and no washers. Torque to
45 lbs-ft. Use a screwdriver in the brake caliper and put the
drive plate on the hub to tighten the drive plate bolts. This
works well on CV bolts as well.
8a. If you are using the old style drive plate, once you
line up the dowel pins and insert the CV cup into the
drive plate, look through the CV cup and find the non-
through holes. The holes in the CV cup alternate between
through holes, and non-through holes. Use the 3/8" x 1"
12 Point bolts (use RED LOCTITE!!!) and bolt the CV
cup to the drive plate in the non-through holes. Then, put
the o-ring on the cap and attach the cap to the drive plate
using the 3/8" x 1" bolts in the through holes (use RED
LOCTITE!!!). If you screw this up, the CV bolts hit the
drive plate bolts and your CV will be loose. Torque these
bolts same as above, 45 lbs-ft.
9. Grease and insert big o-ring. The grease should hold it in
the groove. Install and grease the v-seal on the CV cup.
10. Prep CVs and axles. Off of the car, attach the floater
side CV to the drive plate. Slide this through the spindle
and attach the transmission side CV to the transmission.
On the transmission side, you may have to grind off two
(2) threads of the CV bolts if you are using a Mendeola
transmission. Use RED LOCTITE and tighten the CV
bolts down to 45 lbs-ft.
11. When everything is tight, use the flat-head cap screws
to attach the drive plate to the hub. Use anti-seize or else
the cap screws gall and are difficult to remove.
