    Pinion depth

    I did. I kept right and left separate as well as their orientation

    Pinion depth

    If I am using the same carrier, housing, and gears shouldn’t putting the original shims in the same position work?

    Pinion depth

    Please confirm

    I believe I have a 1971 SBC 350 that was used in vans or buses. If anyone can , please let me know if I’m reading the code correctly

    Pinion depth

    Didn’t take pinion gear out yet but I know which shim was on what side of the carrier

    Pinion depth

    I'm rebuilding the differential in my 79. Im using the old gears and carrier just replacing bearings. If I use the same pinion gear, spacer in the same housing do I need to set pinion depth? I got a pinion depth gauge from Jeggs but the instructions suck ass!

    Help from body gurus!

    I hate the thought of banging on the quarter after being "done", but in reality, I am NOT done...so whats a little more filler, more primer, and more sanding! I'm so much into this project time-wise, that another 2 hours is no biggie!

    1981g, that's awesome advice! I will start blocking as soon as I finish the doors. As I said before, the wheel arch "lip" also needs to be built up, but I can do that when I fix this "boo boo" Thanks again !

    1981g, the other approach I was thinking about was that the wheel arch/lip is slightly "low" and could use building up more. If you look at the before pics, it was almost gone, maybe I need to build it up and work on bumping the "high ridge" and filling it? Not sure if I'm explaining it right

    That's the way it was when I stripped it with 40gr discs, trust me the drivers door was MUCH worse! I sanded it to 80 before spraying epoxy and 2k

    Legacy '76 camaro budget restoration

    Someone can jump in, but if it was my car I would do spot welds closer and closer until I had a continuous weld. I'm not good enough with thin metal (the body part, not the frame) to do a continuous weld, but would do it with the method I mentioned. I would replace the other one. It MAY look ok...

    if it were ME, I would look for a new frame rail (well both, actually). I am sure someone can fabricate/weld the rest, but I don't know I would trust that to such a critical component. Just my .02

    Ok stupid question. Ring gear, that's the one with the actual teeth more or less on the left hand side of the pic?
