Re: Setting up the R&P on the waggy 44.... VENTING
Who's gears are you using. If you are using Dana gears, put the old shims in first and start there. Also on the pinion depth, if they are good gears, there should be markings to tell you how deep to put the pinion. Makes life much, much easier. Also get another set of bearings and hone them out and use them for setup bearings, then when you have it set-up, install the new bearings. Dana rears suck to setup there is no doubt about it, but with setup bearings it makes the job much, much easier. Most of the time you wont get the bearings off the carrier in one piece. Sometimes you get lucky but most of the time forget it just throw them in the trash.
