    Now I need to know what to torque 10bolt ring gears down to? Do you use thread lock on ring gear bolts?

    The reason I pulled it down is I'm swapping on my flattops and 8lug stuff. I sold the mini-spool but the cross pin would not come out without pulling the gears off /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif SO, I need some hub bearings and maybe a couple new seals and then put everything back together once I run it through the parts washer /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
