Some of the performance gear sets already have the inside edge of the ring gear ground so you don't have that problem.

I have a set of 4.11 gears that are hitting. And if you look in summit racing it does list 3 series carrier.

|barnym17||Look under imca in ebay they are common ratios available into the 7 range.When you set up used gears do you adjust the depth by matching the wear pattern?I've just never had any luck with used gears.|

|barnym17||Used gears=bad new us gear is available for around $112.00 off ebay good gears.With used if you don't get everything set exactly as it was ran you will have problems.It's like putting used lifters on a cam.The gears are already mated together and being off a little can cause issues.|

|lmsport||You also have to know the diameter of the bearing stub on your carrier. The old carriers were 1.6__" and the newer ones 1.78". The LM501349 bearing is for the small stub and the LM102949 is for the big stub.|

|31fordcoupe||I think it's pretty consistent though that the smaller bearing is used for the 28 spline and the larger bearing is used for the 31 spline. I will mic it before ordering. Thanks.|

You may need to know which carrier bearing you have to get the correct kit.

Thanx much prostreet. I will bid on the second set then. I also found a Timken rebuild kit on ebay for about $80. So those gears and that rebuild kit and I should be on my way (need axle bearings as well).
I really appreaciate all of your help on this (and every other question you have answered on here for me).

Why buy used (problems?) when Summit has a set of 4.33's for $160 + $12 shipping or another set for $206 or a third for $266 - all Richmond's. No clue without spending more time with the specs what the differences are, but a used R&P plus the bearings and seals plus labor for something that might have been flogged - hard - just isn't worth the aggravation. I can understand trying to save a few bucks, but not in the engine/driveline where you need as much reliability as you can get. And 50-100 bucks - not worth the possible grief and pain to suffer someone elses problems.
OK - now I'll put my soapbox away and watch the NA$CAR Nationwide race

|prostreet6t9||If you get the Richmond set they may make a little noise. But thats not a bad buy.|
|10-24-2009 01:41 PM|
|prostreet6t9||Yes! But it's the second one listed. Not on the backside,the backside cut is just for saving weight.You see how the point is rounded off at the bottom of ring gear the tooth? The first listing is a PRO gear set. I'm thinking you dont need a PRO set. That Pro set looks pretty rough anyway.|
