changing gears

I am interested in changing from a stock differential to a limited slip differential with out changing the whole rear end. I blew out a stock 270 of 280 somewhere in there and got a 342 gearing rear end. I changed the whole thing in january so i was wondering if someone could tell me how to set up a new differential??? I have torn one down so I know how it goes togather but i dont know how to calibrate it. Any tips??? I am tired of being the "ONE TIRE FRIER". Thanks.

If you do not know how and don't have the specialized tools for this. Take it to a shop that does rear ends. This is a very special setup that very few backyard "mechanics" or even some pros can do.

calibrating

my dad has almost any calibration tool known to mankind. I am a very fast learner and was hoping that someone that knows how to set one up would help me. I was rebuilding a 350 on my own with in 4 months of getting into engines. I want to expand my knowledge a little more.

Now you will have to buy the side shim kits for your rear. and get an installation kit from one of the catalog guys Jegs Summit etc. After you get these things PM or use my e-mail and I can talk you thru it.
