Tonight, I downloaded all my pics of the whole job and converted them to web ready. I'll post them all in order with a writeup very soon....hope it helps. Almost 10:00 now, so I'm hittin' the hay.

Too big to fit in the ultrasonic cleaner?

Tragically, yes. Post lottery, I will have a decent 20 gallon parts washer, or that giant washer-thing that Mark Anderson has in the corner of the shop at 928Intl. In the mean time, I'm tempted by ones like so:

While we're on the subject, I'm looking at this advice listed on Nichol's site:

shaft and pull up on the shaft, then repeat. This sucks the grease
into the joint from the top (open) side.
Can anyone clear up what exactly he's talking about? It sounds like he's saying you put a ton of grease on the inside portion of the the outer joint, then plug up the shaft, pull, and this will create enough suction to "pull" the grease from the inside to the outside. Does this work? Anybody have any more advice on getting the grease in? I unfortunately seem to have more time to talk about doing this than actually doing it.

Hello Chris,
YES, that's what he's talking about. I actually did it this weekend and it works. Got a couple of pictures and a description coming up soon...stand by.

Yeah, a picture (or two) is worth a 1000 words. I did the trick but I couldn't describe it very succinctly.
