    Well it\'s in.

    I finally got my Detroit installed in my 14FF. I ann't wait to try it out on some trails. I barely even notice that it is thier except for the little extra back lash in it. I only got it to pop once at a complete 360 at full lock, when i straighten out to drive away.

    Now go see if you can get it stuck. Did you install it yourself?

    Bandit,
    It was pretty easy. It took about an hour an half from start to finish. The only real trick is holding the wing nut while unscewing the bolt after it is installed in the case halves. Also check your back lash on your gears before and after, so you get the same wear pattern on your gears. I made it easy and marked the adjustment rings, and backed them off 2 full turns then reinstalled back to where I started. Then rechecked my back lash.
