    You need to get an angle finder from Snap on or Harbor freight.

    Just about any magnetic angle finder will work. If it doesn't fit the u-jont cap, use a spacer (like a socket that will fit inside the yoke rim, and contact the cap.)
    Try to set the pinion angle down by 1 or 2 deg. vs. the t-case out-put angle. Because, when the axle is loaded, it will rotate slighly and bring the angles back into alignment.
