Installing new gears.

Today I installed some 3.73's in a certain formula...I took some pix & did a small write up to help people decide if they can do this themselves, or need to have a shop do it.

Nice write up....I think it would really help to have pics of measuring backlash and a correct gear mesh pattern. If you have not done it before, it may not make any sense to some people. Good job though.

That is about as detailed as it gets. I am considering doing my rear, and that just made me feel pretty confident that I can do it. I just need the pullers/installers for the bearings and races, as I imagine that makes life much simpler.

AWESOME Write-up.

What a great write up. I am smart enough to know that is waaaay beyond me. How long should an average install take w/ t/c done by a professional so I know what I am in for. Too bad you are 10 hours away.
