center pin/cross shaft wont go back in

Have a friend putting 456 gears in my 8.25 and while putting it back together he found that the center pin doesnt have enough clearance to go back in. Are you suppose to file down the ring gear teeth on these to get the center pin back in and if so how much can you take off and still be ok.

When I put the Aussie locker in my D30, I had to put the pin in before I put the ring gear back on the carrier. I didn't feel comfortable filing teeth down. So if I am understanding you right you already have the carrier back in the housing? If so I would take it back out, take the ring gear off and put the pin in. Just my

Can't do that on an 8.25 because of the c-clips.

You either have to shave the pin or grind a tooth.
