Re: Grease Fittings

You just push the gun on the end of the fitting and pump, but you need to have the proper end on the gun. The parts suppliers should all have them.
You can buy a kit with all the modern zerks in it....

Re: Would you run new 1980s tyres

If they are soft and not aged cracked, sure why not! Bet the rubber compounds were different back then then now and many people didn't(don't) change tires till they were worn anyway.

Re: Which service brake cross shaft bushing?

We drill a hole in the lower retainer and install a grease fitting in both the split type or solid type bronze bearing so it sticks thru the hole. Been doing this for a few years.

Re: Move Pinion forward and back per Les Andrews

You pull off the bearing on the carrier and add a shim behind it, or as I do behind the cup in the axle tube.

Re: Move Pinion forward and back per Les Andrews

I bolt a dial gauge to the housing with the driveshaft tube off and take a reading off one of the corners of the pinion nut. Get you real close.

Re: arbor shim size for pinion shaft

I make my own shim and put under the cup. I would rather take the cup out and not remove the bearings on the carriers any more then is absolutely necessary then to install a new bearing.

Re: backlash

Shims will only move the pinion out from the gear not closer. You need shims under the cups or bearings on carrier or in axle tubes. Then you need to reset everything.
