More 9 inch help

Hi guys! Well this letter falls under the title of “no matter what you know, you can convince yourself you are dumb”. One of my “toys” is a glass 32 ford coupe that some of my friends and I put together two years ago. When we were collecting parts, we found a 9 inch pumpkin with a 4:11 gear set, so in it went. Needless to say some days the 4:11 is a little hard to deal with on the road, so I collected parts for a 3:70 gear to replace it with. I did the install myself, and because it had been several years since I had set a rear gear up, I ask a local “Pro” to look at the final gear pattern, and give me his opinion. I knew I had the pinion depth dead on, and the gear pattern to me looked perfect, which the pro confirmed. The one thing that I had a question on, that the pro guy couldn’t confirm was the amount of preload on the carrier bearings (not the pinion) and how tight to get the adjusting nuts. I am sure there is some universally accepted method to determine this, and Pro guy’s idea of “just snug them up” didn’t seem to be the answer I wanted. As I said, it has been several years since I had done one of these, and what I did back then just kind of escapes me. Any input?

'Cause what pass as gassers nowadays are nothing more than Pro-Street clones. Real gassers had stock Willys frames, all iron hemis, salvage yard Detroit Diesel 671s, 4speed Dual Range Hydros, hard 10" Inglewood 'pie-crust' slicks, sky-high front ends (anyone with the front wheels anywhere near the front fender wells should be ashamed!), Olds Hotchkiss rear ends, real Halibrand mags, and ran on GAS not alky.

Never been to Bowling Green but we have a (the original? 1992 was the first Calif HRR @ Famoso) NHRA Hot Rod Reunion here in Bakersfield at the legendary Famoso drag strip. I go every year.
