pinon

is there anyway to torque the pinion nut with the carrier in? I installed a detroit locker in the rear with new bearings. I put the carrier in before i torqued the nut. It was so hard to get in, that i dont really want to take it out. My yoke is also very hard to get on. I almost broke the puller getting it off. The impact gun is balls out and I almost have the bearings seated, but the washer is no where near crushed and the yoke isnt all the way on. I have the big 3/4 ratchet home from work and was going to use the weight of the truck... but i was told i nead to pull the carrier and check roll on the pinion and set it at 14" pounds. ugh

Bump for ya.

I too have a question of the same nature.
I am installing a new yoke on the rear end. Can I just back the nut off, swap yoke and tighten the nut back up or will this change the ring/pinion adjustment?

Is there a signifcant amount of rust on the splines between the yoke and the pinion gear? that is usually what makes the not tighten down. In that case I would pull it off and sandblast or chem remove the rust. Yes it is more work, but something like the differental is not somthing you want going bad on the road, or having to start over and but new gears.

will i beleive if you are just swapping out the yoke you can get away with marking the nut, pinion and case all in the same position with a punch.

the spines were clean on the yoke and pinion.
