R & P install

I'm dooing a 4.62 gear install for a friend.
We did some testing around, and we can adjust the R & P easily without using the Breeze Side gear spacer.
Why do everyone use that spacer if we can mount the side gear within spec without it ?!

we mounted the 4.62 gear on the samurai carrier in the samurai 3rd member.

Im realy wondering why buying spacer when it doesnt look to be required..

Re: R & P install

It keeps the gear centered in the carrier's bearing frames, where it belongs .

Re: R & P install

I had a problem with my R&P, the 5.13 from Tracker I put on my Samurai at first it didn't make any noise, but after driving for a couple of days it started to make louder noise. I did purchase the shims from Rocky Road they did not give any instruction on how to install it, or where it goes in the carrier etc. Anyway it still work o.k just not perfect and wonder how long it will last me?

Re: R & P install

I have NO experience, but from the looks of the pictures and descriptions I thought the spacer thing was to keep the spider gears/pins or locker pins in place on the carier housing.
Prolly wrong though [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: R & P install

the one ring to keep the pins i didnt use. they cannot fall out and i didnt have any failure due to them falling out 2mm...

the problem is that the ring gear of the kick is much smaller and the pinion is also much smaller. so you need to move the ring back to the middle and if you donnot use any spacer you need to move the side adjusters to their limits and the retainer that holds the side adjusters wont fit.

i thought i am whise and i dont need any spacer
and look how it endet up:

Re: R & P install

I'm gonna check with marking compound tonight. But from our first tests today with greace, the R & P are a little bit off and the carrier bearings are centered.

I know that the can to hold the pins is required, but the spacer for the ring gear look to be unusefull in my case [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
