I thought it was a straight shot too, until Arthur Dalton finally got it through the bone structure. then the light came on.

You need to know how much resistance it takes to turn the yoke or shaft, before the big nut is removed. whether it is still attached to the car with the axles connected, or on the bench. when it`s reassembled, do your measurments the same as how you started.

reading how a diff is put together and all the parts have to be exact, shimmed and measured. one thing throws the next thing out of whack.

now that it is all tightened back down, you don`t have a reference point as how it was from the begining.

in the mean time, just have another one ready to go. Hello PNP

So what are the chances that it will have a problem...? It seems to be working ok right now......what would be the signs of failure?

It's not too late to correct it. Get the factory specs & redo it before it's too late. It will take more than the few miles you've put on it to do serious damage.

When in doubt, too tight is better than too loose. If it's loose the pinion will move fore & aft as well as try to climb the ring gear causing misalignment and rapid gear wear. Too tight will wear the bearings, but the gears won't be damaged unless bearing shrapnel gets them.

Hmm....there was not any play in it when I put it together......I hand tightened the nut then I allowed my electric impact to hit it 4 times (approx 80-90ft/lbs)....so I doubt its too loose. It seemed to feel and turn like it did with the previous yoke installed....there was no play, and everything is smooth/quiet when driving.
