Installed the gears and clutch packs. L side was 0.013" and the right was 0.012" which is right in the middle of the 0.005 to 0.030" range. So the old 0.030" shim was sufficient. Measured it the right way this time between the end of the axle shaft and the cross pin. I'm glad I had the axle out there's just now way around it. Getting the spring back in is a PITB! Even if I had the thicker 0.035 shim to get closer to 0.005" I'm not sure I'd go the trouble to stick it in. Right now I'm workn on getting the parking brakes installed. What is it with ford and Really tight springs? I'm pretty sure there is a special tool for this. I just don't have it. Some thing before the big game tomorrow....
