'Bout .006" or so. Be sure to tap the carrier bearing caps as you rotate the pinion when you set their preload. I bet they loosen up out of spec after you do this...

BTW, here is a GREAT source of gear setup info for minis. You'll be reading for hours methinks... ZUK is good people.

In fact, ZUK talks about the carrier bearing rapping right here!

Methinks that issue alone is responsible for that rash of elocker failures from the Toyota factory that had mechanics doing warranty replacements for a while there. I think Toyota had a gear setup person or three who did not set up the carrier bearings correctly. In fact, that's where a couple of my elockers came from. Not to mention the busted ring gear on the Order of the Broken Ring award I made a while back...
