Re: Gona install lockrite

No biggy If I can do it any one can. I just transfered mine on the rear to a new (Used) rear end and left one to maney shims in. was to tight made some very bad (Scary) noises. Had to take it apart and do it over. If you've never wheeled with lockers you'll love it!!!!

count the number of turns when you undo the carrier setting things. Make sure you keep everything on the side it came off. ummm it is prety basic

Re: Gona install lockrite

Pay very close attention to the amount of backlash between the ring and pinion , and the way you dial the preload back into the main carrier bearings . If it's too tight or loose, you'll destroy the ring and pinon .

Follow what the others have said. When you pull the ring gear bolts clean the holes and bolts real good and remember to use liberal amounts of locktite on the ring bolts and bearing caps.

Re: Gona install lockrite

I just put mine in last weekened,and the difference is phenominal!!!!Sarge-with the dial,your supposed to mark em with a hole punch so you can get em exactly where they were before,right??Thats what the instruction manual said to do so I hope I got it right[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]My backlash is a little tighter now,but still enough of the required lash to not make a difference in the front.

Re: Gona install lockrite

You can use a beam style torque wrench, and check the rotating drag on the pinion shaft at the flange , then compare it again when it's together . Should be within 10% if everything is right . Just remember that you cleaned all the oil out of the bearings, so oil them first . Once it's back in the truck, drive it easy for awhile , no matter how careful you are, your putting a new pattern on those teeth . And keep an eye out on the amount of heat and drag it generates . If the preload isn't right , that gear is going to get excessively hot .

Re: Gona install lockrite

I installed mine yesterday a couple things I found out my carrier was worn badly and the pins as well and the spider gears were terriable so I got a used front carrier and the spidergears from a late modle side kick front that had been modified by trail tough all in all everything looks like new but it also cost me $100 for all the extra parts and shipping I also had to grind the little square pin holder later found out you can grind alot off of it it doesnt have to be realy precise I saw one being installed they just took it to the belt grinder and ground both sides before they even started
