    I need to set the pinion angle on my 14FF. I have a SYE on my 241 with a CV flange and I know the pinion should be about 2º down from the TC. Whats the best way to do this?? Do I go from the center nut on the flange to the pinion nut with like a peice of conduit or something similar to put the angle finder on?? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif Any tips or advice you may have is appreciated.

    If you run a line (conduit would be fine) between the center of the TC output shaft to the center of the pinion shaft and put an angle finder on it, you will get the your looking for angle.
