Input on using new pinion nut.

Can't believe how many people at work are on different sides on this. How important is it to replace the pinion preload nut for the yoke when installing another yoke. Some say very for proper torque and others say they never had.

Done it both ways and never had a problem with either. FWIW when you buy a ring and pinion from Ford you get a new crush sleeve and nut.

I too have done it both ways. It never hurts to install a new one. It is not like it costs mega bucks.

You guys are going to have to stop talking about going both ways..................

About the nut.............Isn't it because it is deformed slightly on top, so it acts as a lock nut. They say the same thing about SB rocker nuts. Take them on and off a few times and they lose their snugness.........
