Diff setup

Postby ennored » Wed May 07, 2014 4:50 pm

I have a differential I need to setup. I have never done one. I have the manual and access to the right tools, definitely looks like something I could do. But I hate to screw it up. Anyone know someone who could look over my shoulder or maybe recheck my work? It's out of the vehicle, the center section is removable, so it's easy to work on. Only catch is it weighs 260 or more pounds. Ring gear is 14.25". Lot's of large torque values.

Kevin Langston of The Gearbox has been mentioned, is he still around?

As long as you have the books and specs. Wixom is about another 40 minutes from me.
