9 inch rebuild

I'm putting a spool in a 9 inch that I recently bought and I can't find the bearing preload specs/backlash. Any help on a rebuild would be awesome! Thanks!!

How hard are you looking? A search on "ford 9 inch pinion preload" turned up pages of stuff to choose from.

According to the instructions that came with my setup new vs used gears have different values for backlash and preloading.

I'm sorry. I guess I shouldn't have read your post before I responded. Your comment about bearing preload lead me to assume you were refering to the pinion. My mistake.

If I remember correctly, the links I found with my search turned up several sites that cover the whole 9" setup.
