    here's some pics of what i did. this is a Van 14FF i went a 1/4" into the housing. after plating the housing i gained about 1 1/2" of clearance. it's not that much extra but hey it was free:D

    then the housing was plated with 1/2" and was stick welded with a stick just for cast iron, we preheated the area and wrapped it with welding blankets the allow it to coll slower.

    and the cover i used a diff ring made by cyberfire a vendor here. the diff ring is made specific for shaved housings so it left a lot of extra material at the bottom so i could trim the ring to fit the profile of the shaved housing.

    How much clearance between the ring gear and the housing? Do you have to turn down the O.D. of the ring gear? If not, why didn't you do that to get even more from the shave?

    I missed this as well. No ring gear grinding? Thinking about shaving up the 14 bolt a bit. Need to find a shop to grind the ring gear down a bit though.
