Thread Resurrection...having the same issue with my Lock Right. My gap was about .190" - the specified range is .145 to .170". This was with the used thrust washers, which both measured .027" each. Anyone ever come up with a good solution?
I did call Powertrax (Richmond) tech support when I discovered that my locker wasn't ratcheting. They weren't horribly helpful other than to give me the gap dimensions. I tried to call them today, but no one answered - probably closed for the holidays.
Following up to my own post...I ordered a new set of thrust washers from East Coat Gear Supply $3 for the pair - I got great support from ECGS. They measured the new washers at .030" each. So, I think I'll use the two new thrust washers and one of the old washers, which should give me a near perfect .157" gap. I also ordered new Ring Gear bolts from ECGS, since you aren't supposed to reuse them.
I'll followup again after I get it installed.
