From what I have heard about your garage, you wouldn't know a broom if you fell over it.

I know what the broom is, there just isn't room to move it.  I use a vacuum anyway

OK.  I dove in head first today.  Got everything apart.  Only hiccup was trying to pop the carrier out.  I called Steve.  He said it should literally fall out.  He DIDN"T tell me that I had to back off the side thrust bearings first.  After I figured that out, it fell out.
I dropped the pinion gear to have the new bearing pressed on and I'll pick that up tomorrow morning.
 
Hey.  This is easy.  Why didn't everybody say so....

Hopefully it will go together the first time and you do not have too much trouble adjusting it to get the correct gear mesh and lash. I have done a few gear swaps but I was lucky my projects did not require much adjustment. Good luck setting up your new gears!

That's OK.  Just hearing your assuring voice gave me the moral support to carry on...

I do that to Elaine too.  I can't go through a day without using 3/4 of a battery, or more.

The only thing fun is getting the torque on the pinion where it belongs, along with the shims. The book and everything I have seen is to start with what you have on it first, then adjust afterwards. Lash adjustment according to the book based on the painted pattern on the teeth, just follow the directions and you will be more than happy with the results.
 
By the way, what gears are you putting in? I missed that part.

3.55's.  Now that the power band got moved up, launching 4700 lbs with the 2.71 just wasn't cutting it for me.

If you drill and tap the bottom, you can put a drain plug in.  Without the proper tools, you may be going back in a few times.  You need the touch

Always, check the preload pattern and compare it to all the different patterns to see where you are, the books all have pictures of what needs more, less, left and right. I don't know about everyone else, who seem to jab and kid you, but I have faith in your ability. I figure if you have the guts to go in, you have the guts to do it right.
