Powertrax No-Slip Traction System Question.

So I bought a used Powertrax No-Slip Traction System for my dana30 narrow track axle. Got a pretty good deal on it. It all seemed to go in well. But I have a few questions about it sense It did not come with installation instructions. I tried installing with the thrust washers and it just did seem to go together. So took them out and it all seem to go in fine. But I read online that the kit come with a "go" and No Go" gauge (block) for the gap between the two plates, making sure it is correct...Well The Gauge was not included when I bought the locker. So My question is does any one have one they could use some machinist calipers or a mic and give me the measurements? Also Is it correct to not use the thrust washers?

Take a picture of all your parts so we can tell what you might be missing.

I just took mine apart then put it back in to install new gears on my D44. I'm assuming they are the same. There are no thrust washers that I know of. What the gauge does is to confirm that you have slid everything together correctly. It only goes together ONE way. That is after lining up all the parts and sliding them in the carrier.

Thanks, That makes me feel better about the install. I knew I had all the parts besides the gauge block. I was just unsure about the thrust washers. That is what would probably decided whether the gauge block would go or not go.

I'm pretty sure that if you don't have it lined up right, you won't be able to install the pinion shaft. Here is a link for the installation instructions.
