Crosspin bolt?

Well this weekend I was up at Harry's-u-pull-it in Hazleton, PA looking for some gear for my '00 XJ.

I found a ZJ with disc brakes to do the conversion however, when I pulled the diff cover, and looked for the cross pin bolt I was surprised to see a non standard hex head bolt.

I'm not sure what exactly it is as it didn't quite look like a 12-point. Could anyone shed some light on this. Nothing came up on the search.

Re: Crosspin bolt?

Hallo. It is possible that this is a roll pin and not a bolt. Mostly in old Dana non C-clips axles.
You can punch it out.

Re: Crosspin bolt?

Could you describe how exactly it is a "non standard hex head bolt"? Which model and year of rear end are you looking at? A little more information might be helpful.

Re: Crosspin bolt?

Ive never seen anything other than standard hex bolts. I guess it could be a star head...or reverse torx. I cant remember when I stripped a ZJ axle for the brakes.

Re: Crosspin bolt?

Being a ZJ, it would be a c-clip axle and probably a 1/4" 12-point or maybe 5/16 12-point head.

Re: Crosspin bolt?

I think it might be a star head (reverse torx). I believe the year was a 96. I want to make sure I have the right socket to get it out. Anyone know if craftsman has 'star' sockets?

Re: Crosspin bolt?

Hallo. The cause is worn C-clips and clips grooves in the axles and the LS.
The movement is axial 3mm of the rear wheels.
Sometimes it makes sounds, when the brake shoes are moving with it. LOL

Re: Crosspin bolt?

the only thing I have for you on that topic is to post maybe a pic of the bolt, otherwise its likely the torx bits they use all over the place. Or get a 12 point socket? I wish I could help out more.

However, how is that junkyard up in Hazelton? I drive up that way from Carolina a lot and pass that junkyard...is it worth stopping to take a look?
