      Two weeks later & I got time to work on it after buying another set of punches.  You need "roll pin punches" because they have a small knob on the end that centers the punch.  I bought these for slightly more than $20.    https://www.wildetool.com/product/6-piece-roll-pin-spring-punch-set/   The 7/32 size is what I used.  1/4" is too big.  Be sure to have the passenger inner axle in place because it helps hold the planet gears in the correct location.  A socket and long extension on the punch will let you get enough swing with a BFH to remove the pin.   I'll work more tomorrow but a cheap set of the correct type of punch made the job pretty reasonable.  Dana should be shot for the design that requires the roll pin removal.

      Very well, thx for your good work.   Pic of the rig just for grins. Almost as long as a semi. https://i.imgur.com/v0rdnLL.jpg ----- Synopsis of custom tune import video: The custom tune is a file type associated with the iquad app that when opened on your phone or tablet with quadzilla software, is auto imported & lands on a screen where the tune name can be set. -- Hey man all I see are tow tunes and race tunes for large injectors. What's the equivalent of a twin  turbo large injector daily tune? Tow tune I assume? I like how u have the emissions tune on there. Thx for your contributions. Just found the descriptions, jumped the gun." Large Injector Extereme tune"   Sounds like what I want. The thought of full throttle pedal capability off idle like the description says has me wildly facinated. I've never had that feature on my truck before. It had an edge jwa on it when I bought it.
