The ring and pinion pattern shoud be in the center of the ring gear. You should have about 2 thousands back lash when properly set up. Paint the ring gear and check for your wear pattern. I use white paint myself and rotate the gear one full turn and check.

I changed the starter and went to try it, now the truck starts but the starter doesnt disengage. i kill the engine and the starter wants to keep it going for a few seconds. i tried again and same thing....


You may need to add shims to increase pinion gear to ring gear clearance !
Inspect the flywheel ring gear for damage or unusual wear.


?€¢
Shim the starter if applicable.


?€¢
In order to add pinion to ring gear clearance a full size shim must be used. Do not shim only 1 starter mounting bolt. There are 3 shims available in different shapes (for clearance). All are 1 mm (0.039 in) thick.


When you took off the old starter did you see any thin strips of metal ?

Ring and pinion adjustment


hello sir ...

RING AND PINION TOOTH CONTACT PATTERN.—The ring and pinion tooth contact pattern is used to double-check ring and pinion adjustment. To check the accuracy of your adjustments, coat the ring gear teeth with a thin coat of red lead, white grease, hydrated ferric oxide (yellow oxide or iron), or Prussian blue. Turn the ring gear one way and then the other to rub the teeth together, producing a contact pattern on the teeth. Carefully note the contact pattern that shows up on the teeth where the substance used has been wiped off. A good contact pattern is one located in the center of the gear teeth (fig. 5-21). Figure 5-21 shows several ring and pinion gear contact patterns. Study each and note the suggested correction for the faulty contact

Starting problems


I am guessing that you have a problem properly engaging the starter pinion into the ring gear to start the engine Check the starter pinion for correct adjustment and check pinion teeth for wear. Check the ring gear for wear from where the pinion fails to engage properly before spinning.

Rear End Whine Under Load


Replacing gears and/or bearings in a differental is not an easy project. You'll need a press. The positioning of the gears requires a great deal of precision. Shims are used to acheve the correct setting. Preload setting on the pinion bearings is critical. I would recommend leaving this one to the experts.

How to set crown + pinion gears on 1982 dodge ram


you adjust the backlash and pinion depth by add or removing shims from the side bearings and from under the large pinion bearing, here is a pattern chart, you will need to get some pattern past and put on the gears then turn the pinion and check the pattern on the gears keep adding or removing shims until you have the pattern correct.....good luck\

P.S. I cant recommend doing this job by yourself get some help from someone who has done this before, 9 out of 10 people who try this repair will destroy the rear end, if the pinino depth is to deep you will brake the ring gear if to shallow the rear end will make so much noise you can't drive it.

I`m changing ring and pinion gears on a 1985 Diplomat. Other than eyeballing up, is there a set dimension they should be set at? I have the new pinion in and have to adjust the ring gear but don`t know...


Unfortunately you're going to need an experienced differential mechanic to set up the new gears. The end play and gear backlash must be within thousandths of an inch or at best you'll have a noisy whining gear set, and at worst it'll destroy the gears in no time.

My 1996 camaro z-28 need the rear end replaced, so were is the id tag, that gives me the correct rearend , in hte car and should I pull out the complete rear end and have it rebuiled, and then reinstalled...


If you take the VIN # to a GM dealer they should be able to tell you the original rear end that the vehicle came with. If you are going to take the rear end to a shop they will be able to tell when they take it apart. If it is a posi rear end it will have a tag under one af the cover bolts (if it has not been removed) Once inside a posi rear end is immediately identifiable from the clutch pack. Also the number of teeth is stamped on each (pinion and ring) gear. Divide ring gear # by Pinion gear # to get rear end ratio. Didn't get directly to your question, but I hope this helps. Let me know. Thanks

The rear differentials are broken 1993 jeep grand wagoneer.


Look for a used replacement on ebay, craigslist, or junkyards. When you find the parts, then find a shop to install them for you.

2000 Chevy Express 1500 Rear End Problem Had Pinion seal replace and universals. After 400 miles has bearing sound in rear. Took it in and it was found that pinion nut was too tight. Shop replaced...


Sounds like the original wear pattern of the ring and pinion was disturbed when the pinion was tightened too much. Once a wear pattern is set in the gears you can't really change it. It might be the ring and pinion wearing that you are hearing and not a bearing at all. It's not the worst thing in the world but will cause the ring and pinion to wear improperly and is annoying. Differential work needs to be done by someone that really knows their stuff to avoid these little problems.

How do I replace the ring gear and pinion in my 68 Camaro 12 bolt


You can change the ratio back to 4.10. However, if you do not already have the specialty tools required to do the job, you will likely be better off finding a shop that will change the gears for you. A mistake as simple as incorrect backlash will result in destroyed ring & pinion gears.

Your cheaper options will be :
1. Find a matching rear-end with 4.10 gears and swap it in.
2. Purchase the ring and pinion, master install kit, and find a friend that has installed gears before to help you out.
3. Find a 4x4, Hotrod or auto shop that is will swap the gears for you. If the axle is in the car, it's usually more expensive than if you carried the axle in for them to work on.
4. Purchase R&P, Master install kit, all the required tools. Then hit the books to find the proper procedure and measurements for that axle.

Good Luck.
