2003 Tacoma Elocker Repair
2003 tacoma 3.4 dbl cab 4x4 trd offroad. Quick question on the rear elocker.
Mine was full of mud, cleaned it all out and got it working again, but it hits the bump stops on the inside cover and overrides the lip and gets stuck. When it does that, the commutator and the gear dont mesh anymore and if i keep banging 12volts on it, i know ill strip the platic gear. I welded two little ends on the gear that contacts the pins on the inside case to hopefully make it stop, but the motor is so powerful it overrode the inside stop again and gets stuck.
My question is if I grind off the lump bump stop on the inside, will the 3 pins tell that gear to stop on those 2 plastic contacts on the gear? I am so frustrated with this elocker. My hope is that inside the diff on that sliding gear will stop it too, but i dont wanna break the inside of my differential
