14b stuck carrier,, detroit install.. update
see updated post
please delete this one
I assume you removed the axle shafts first. If so it should pop right out after the caps are removed. If not you may have to go a few more turns on the adjusting nuts.
sorry to aks but did you remove the full floater shafts. and if so thay can sometimes need a good pop to get out.
Did you loosen up the big threaded things that are on either side of the carrier (sorry dont know what they are called) but they have a bunch of holes in them?? just make sure you count how many turns you made on them.
axleshafts... I dont need no stinkin axles . yes they are out... and were
(cam is drooling now like a complete moron)
the adjusting nuts.... how many turns are probably appropriate to get it loose... maybe I didnt make enough... they said 3 or 4?
Thats about the only thing that could hold it in there, maybe try and loosen it up some more and jiggle it.
back to the shop... thanks guys... ok Ill try another turn or two
the great news is that after some more turns it fell out in my hand... the bad news is twofold...
I lost the count
the magic marker came off and I lost the initial location for turn counts
How can I properly setup the carrier again if I have lost the original specs???
(I wont make that mistaKE AGAIN)
When you reinstall the adjusting nuts just tighten down the main caps a little so you can turn the caps and reset the backlash. It is easy.
I don't even ever count the turns when i do a 14FF or a 9" Furd. I always forget it anyway or i loose where i wrote it down.
thanks chief... Im already asking how to do that...
