Re: pulling/stuffing engine and tranny

Re: Lawsons 97's ( LC ) + vintage kits

Re: putting pinion back

I would use a few studs to line up the shim and housing, lube up the O-ring and housing for a good slip fit. If the O-ring is new it will take a bit to get it pushed in. And yes the pinion will turn...

Re: 57 9" pinion assembly gasket

4663 is the shim used to set pinion depth. You need to reuse that other wise you will probably ruin the gear set unless you use the same thickness shim, but that is not the seal. The O-ring is used...

Re: The Right Stuff
