I always pull my spider gears out to weld them. I want to remove all the gear oil and ensure that I have them welded to the best of my ability. I also want to make sure that I have cleaned up the weld and carrier, removing any slag and trash that could ruin a bearing. I don't know of any short cut or easy way to do it.

first thing that you will do is get the pinion gear set in the housing when you tighten the nut you shuld have 7 -12 inch pounds of torque to turn it when you have it tight then set the back lash their you will need .007-.014 of backlash I like it on the tight end of the specks. if you have any questions e-me then I will call you
