    With the use of a bolt, say 6 1/2" long, two large flat washer's, and a nut. You'll have to push some to get the nut started after that, it'll be easy. Make Sure that the washer's will fit through the bore's in the carrier first, before you try and put it together. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    OK so the springs go inbetween the locker body and the side gears then use the long bolt thingy to keep it all from springing apart???

    Yepper's, it will work if the bolt is long enough, even longer but it has to be short enough for the completed locker package to fit in the carrier. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The most important part is the little bumpy steel ring that goes in the center of the locker. It's the cam that decides when things should lock or unlock. If it isn't installed correctly, then the truck won't move, as the side gears will unlock any time power is applied to them. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif (Some morons at a "professional" diff shop installed mine wrong, after they told me that they "didn't need" to use the shipping bolt to hold the locker together when they took it apart to install a new ring and pinion). /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif It's been a long time, but I think the description of how to index the cam properly was included with the directions that came with the locker.
