  1. Have to ask. After the site update tapatalk stopped working, so will tapatalk functionality be coming back? I can't even find the site one tapatalk anymore. Also, using the mobile site I am unable to search. I've tried on chrome and dolphin phone web browsers. Once I select in the search box my keyboard comes up, but then immediately disappears. Haven't had this happen on any other sites, just this ones.
  2. Found one answer in the sticky. -Using an inch-pound torque wrench, frequently measure the pinion bearing preload while getting it tight. It should be 8-14 inch lbs. (0.8-1.6 Nm) for used bearings or 16-29 inch lbs. (1.8-3.2 Nm) for new bearings. Is there supposed to be a break away torque or is it supposed to be a consistent from start to finish?
  3. OK, I procrastinated the whole year and started working on this last week. I thought I was good just using the mark, replace seal, and return nut to previous position. That didn't go as planned. I started with about 30 in/lb break away and 10-12 in/lb rotational. I pulled everything and found a small groove in the flange (pic below) and found a redi-sleeve locally. Got everything back together, but as I was tightening the pinion nut I checked rotational torque one revolution before the nut was back to its original position. Break away was 15 in/lb and rotational was 8 in/lb. I tightened the nut another half turn (still not at it's original position yet) and I checked the rotational torque again. It was 40 in/lb break away and 20 in/lb rotational. What could I have done wrong? I ended up pulling everything out and checked rotational torque again and got the same as when the differential and axles were in. Now that everything is out, I will be replacing the crush sleeve with shims. The bearing appear to be fine, I didn't didn't find any pitting in any of them. I will not be replacing the bearings, but will get a new pinion nut. So my question now becomes, what should the rotational torque be for old bearings?
  4. Read the whole thread a few days ago and just keep coming back waiting to see what else you've done and everything is looking good.
  5. Now I see what I have to look forward to when I replace the screens and backs on an iPhone 4 and 4s. It's going to suck royally. How do you keep track of all those little pieces? Sent from my HTC6525LVW
  6. The wingless look has grown on me a good bit. Looks good

  11. I planned on just pulling it since it is always a pain to work on certain things when your on your back. Thinking about it, I've got an extra housing and internals from my old rear end that had a bent axle tube. Maybe I should just build that with the old internals and start buying upgrade stuff little by little Sent from my DROID RAZR using Tapatalk
  12. I've got an old craftsman beam style torque wrench, but don't remember the size or measurements, but I have one. I am going to search around about the crush sleeve shim and see what the consensus is. Sent from my DROID RAZR using Tapatalk
  13. Would it be better to do a crush sleeve shim instead of the crush sleeve? Measure the width/depth of the current crush sleeve and make the shim the same width/depth (whichever you want to call it)? http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/SK-CSF88/Mustang-88-Crush-Sleeve-Shim-79-14 Do you have a recommendation on a rotation torque gauge?
  14. I think they have been announcing around September/October each year Sent from my DROID RAZR using Tapatalk
  15. Yay, another issue after coming back mustang week and I wasn't even there for the week. My pinion flange decided to start leaking all over my driveway. I've looked online and have read that I could mark the placement of the pinion nut, count the revolutions to take the nut off, and get it torqued back down to where the mark is after matching the revolutions from take off. Is it really that simple or is what I read too simplified and not how it should be done? Sent from my DROID RAZR using Tapatalk
