a lot of people seem to be doing it latly ....was just wondering exactly how hard it was??
First off some special tools are needed. Then basic knowledge of how gears are set is needed. Obviously all the specs for the axle will be needed
I just did mine, not that bad but everything kinda fell into place and setup perfectly the first time. It can be kinda a bitch though, I had my journeyman help me set mine up and I'm lucky that we have a hydraulic press with the right bearing cups and he had done a few before. Mine were also used gears so I just used the same amount of shims on the pinion and it laid the exact same pattern down.
You are better of spending a few bucks and have someone that does it all the time do it right.Do it wrong and you will fry your new gears real quick. check out Precision gear.com for some info
well, id probobly just go find a pair of 3/4 tons or better with the right gears in them..
Considering how long it took you to figure out how to properly install new plug wires on a 4-cylinder engine, I would say that you are definitely NOT ready to do a gear swap. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
