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.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

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

84 xj 350tbi, sm465, 203/205, 60/70. links and other junk.
what size sawzall blades does it take to fit 40's?

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.
