OK, sounds good. As far as measuring the preload for the pinion, is that with the entire rear put back together or just with the pinion itself in. My assumption would be with the entire rear together but no brakes or wheels on? As far as the gears go, is any wear at all acceptable or what am I looking for there other than the obvious cracks or busted teeth?
Really appreciate the help! I may have more questions once I get it tore apart.
