Re: Shimming M 20 pinion HELP
If I'm reading you right.. what you're needing to "shim" with there is the crush Sleeve. this should be replaced each time the axle is torn down. and you might want spares, cause if you crush it too much when setting the gears up on the AMC, you'll need a new one. but I'll tell you this much, you're gonna want air tools to crush it. it took quite a bit from my buddies big air gun to crush it and set the depth.
Many places sell it in the shim kit for the AMC, but the part that "shims" that you're looking for is called the Crush Sleeve. Looks like a big wedding band
