529 rear install over-view
(7 low res pics loading)
FEB 16 2005
The rear install is very similar to the
front so just the highlight pics are being
shown. This one already had a Detroit
"hardLocker" in it and just needed 529 gears.
The ring gear is loctited in to 70 ft/lbs
and I also used some sleeve locking compound
on the used carrier bearings. That way, they
would never cause spun damage anytime in the future.
Being used pinion bearings, I selected .105"
(a thicker than average shim) for the pinion
shim just like the front install.
That's one of those factory solid collars.
I ended up using .056" for the pinion pre-load
shim to get the desired 6 in/lbs of resistance.
Looks like the .105 worked
very well again. Drive side.
