ok i have one of these in the garage.....the gears are striped.....whats involved in puting new 4.10s in this pumpkin???
For the most part yes! But I've seen some pretty creative ways of getting them disassembled, re-assembled and set up with no problems. It probably comes down to the amount of time to get it right...WAY longer without the tools, especially without the pinion depth tool and installing a different mfg gearset and ratio. It's gonna be trial and error with lots of asm and disasm along the way. Impossible, no. Not practical, probably, but that's really up to each individual. However, I think the end result goal is to have the proper markings (mesh), backlash and preloads. How you get there can be done differently, with time and tools being the main factors in how that goal is achieved. As you stated prior, SOME tools are manditory, like the dial indicator and torque wrenches as there is no way to set backlash and preload without them.Rich95XR7 said:Would you agree with me that if you put them in without the right tools, they will not last at least?
