Sorry... except for the "extreme novice regear" thread... I haven't seen much on people setting up gears here. I don't look at pirate very often... just seemed more likely to find there.

Life with Christ can be explained like a Jeep...
Being in the Word... grows your tire size.
Prayer... gains more ground clearance.
Fellowship... Is like having a good spotter.

The more of these you have... the easier it is to get over obstacles in your path.

Looks great. Wish I had the time to do mine. What did you do to get your pinion preload?

I just installed the outer thrust washer and tightened the yoke nut until I reached the preload for setting up, I still need to remove the setup race, install preload shims and check/adjust as needed. For pinion load for taking the pattern, I twisted a towel and wrapped it around the yoke and held it while I turned the carrier with a closed end wrench. That's what worked for me to get the most consistent load for taking a pattern. This is my first time doing this, I think the first axle is the hardest because your learning the mechanics of everything, after that its lots of patience and measuring and developing a feel for how much one shim change changes the tolerances(I've a long way to go yet...writing stuff down as you go is a big help)

We are about in the same boat. I still can't feel my way around the job like some can and I am constantly going through the directions my buddy gave me to make sure I did everything correctly. I'm going to do an empty front 44 when I get the chance. It kind of scares me since I won't have a starting point.

Where did you get your instructions or where you like me and had some hand written stuff?

I used http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billavista/Gear_Setup/ as well as the writeups here, the novice regear thread and links in there to a couple of D44 regears. Yukon also has a PDF on setup. The two D44 write ups I saw setup around .041-.043 if I remember. Good tools make life easier and less frustrating too.

Can't tell you how many times that has happened to me.
