.070 of pinion shim got the pattern right where we want it!

Finished up by setting the pinion bearing preload with a solid pinion spacer. Didn't get any photos of that.

Nice :)

It's really not *that* bad of a job. Scary at first but feels good doing your own. :)

Ya the biggest thing is having all the right tools.

Hopefully those photos are not of the final set up. The coast side looks nice, but the drive side has the pinion too deep. Not a really good set up for strength or longevity or noise
Were these used gears or new?

They are used gears. I'm very confident they are right where they need to be!

Im sure you know that with used gears you want to focus on the coast pattern. :-)
