You will need at minimum, a dial indicator and magnetic stand(base) an assortment of shims for the pinion, a bearing press and an inch lb. and foot lb. torque wrench and something to use for pattern reading (gear marking compound, white lead etc).

Ring and pinion installation is not for the novice.

I agree with bob this is not for the novice. You could purchase a set up tool to make it a little easier. I made my own using a chevy starter shim of .050 and bolt it to the carrier bearing surface on the housing and use a depth mic from there to set pinion depth which is the hardest part IMO
TRY www.sethirdgen.com this is a rebuild of a chevy 10 bolt with good info or try places like randys ringandpinion, drivetrain direct and national drivetrain and see what they have as far as tech articles before you start

First of all, what kind of chunk you got - 741, 742, 489 case? Or is it a DANA 60 with no chunk? Give us a hint & I think I may be able to help you. The crush sleeve 742 is probably the toughest. The 741 & 489 are realitively easy. The DANA is a whole different story.
