Dave you are the man!

I am in the process of doing the exact same thing on my 65 and this video is exactly what I needed!! I do not have the J tool, however, will do with the straight edge like you showed in a previous post HERE

BTW this needs to be a sticky

Dave, thanks for sharing your cool tech session and experience with this topic. I thought it was really helpful and clear with all the details you mentioned. It's great having people like you in our circle that are willing to share all your experience and knowledge to keep guys like me from learning the hard way and making costly mistakes. Keep those videos coming!

I do have one question on this: Does the gasket thickness between the diff and trans factor in and affect this final clearance.

Thanks,

The book says to take the measurement with no gasket, so they must have figured it in the equation.

Another useful video. Wish you had done it a year earlier...but I did have fun figuring this out on my own.

Well done sir.
