Most of the new pumps are made by Gates or GMB and most of the remanufactured ones are done by A1 Cardone. Doesn't matter who you buy the pump from, it's likely one of those companies.

The D44 does not use a pinion crush sleeve to set the pinion bearing preload, but the amount of torque on the pinion nut still affects the bearing preload a little.

I'd torque that thing to spec if...

Get an iron pump with an OE style impeller. They work fine.

It's happening.

I always figured that once these Jeeps got old enough and valuable enough that more people would wish there were more of them that were left stock.

Oh, my bad. AMC 20 axle, not Dana 20 transfer case.
