14 Bolt Semi Float Pieces
« on: October 25, 2019, 02:26:36 PM »
Hey guys, total noob here. I was pulling the shafts from the carrier in order to remove my backing plates so that I could swap to discs. As I was pushing in the axle to remove the c-clip the pieces pictured dropped out. I know where they go but I donít know how to get them back under the gears. Again, total noob, this is the first differential Iíve opened

Yeah I was quick to freak out. Remove the whole carrier, reassemble, put the pin back up through the middle to hold everything in place, re-install

Haha thanks Shifty. This is my first project so I get pretty nervous when Iím tearing into this stuff. Iíve probably got at least 500 pictures on my phone just to show where stuff goes when I finally put it all back together

Make sure you set your carrier preload correctly if you remove the carrier.
