    nice work -- spot on patterns on the drive and coast -- you did an excellent set up as far as shim selection for the gear -- did you set the preload on the pinion bearings correctly and also on the carrier bearings,, if so you should be good to go.

    Thank you so much for your kind comment.
    Well this is setup with fixed bearings(honing)
    But did snug down to 15 inc pound for preload,so is it likely to chance much when I press new bearing on.

    you will be close but bearings due vary so pinion bearing preload will change with the new bearing -- you will have to check it to make sure what preload you have ---- 20-25 in/lbs for new bearings -- 8-15 in/lbs for used bearings

    Would crowbar be best medhood to make load on gears,to get best result with pinion pattern?
    Thanks
