I'll have to go check that. It won't be much.
Alright, got another pattern. I've attached the pictures, I'm Lookshaving kind of a hard time reading it. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Drive side doesn't look too bad, but the coast side is not readable. Did you use an axle to turn everything at least 5 or 6 FULL TURNS in both directions? Also, you didn't answer post number 50 yet.
Yes I did, 6 full turns using the axle. As for spinning the pinion, it doesn't free wheel by any means. Maybe half of a turn? I'm not positive and I'm not by the car right now.
Something is wrong with the coast side. The pattern is way off the heel end. The drive side looks like the pinion is not deep enough.
Hey all, thanks for all the help with this.
I shimmed the pinion all the way up to almost .060" and the pattern didn't seem to change much. That seemed like a pretty large amount of shims, so I started going the opposite way from the stock shim, and the pattern looks better I think. Thoughts?
The coast side looks much better, but the drive side doesn't look deep enough. How does it sound now when you turn it? Did that noise go away?
Just to rule everything out..... the R&P were a set? You didn't mix two different sets, did you?
Here is another video. Pinion preload is about 19 in lb, backlash is .007" and you saw the pattern I just posted. I'm using setup bearings if that makes a difference (the very first video was not).
Some of the noise is my jackstands moving around while I was spinning the axle
Nope, ring and pinion were a set.
