Great job on the table Kenny!   :thumbs:   The bearing...are those gouges & pits I see on the tapers?

Yepper! That was the only bearing like that. The race had a few small spots in it, so unsure what happened.

Nice work on the table! How difficult were the bearing changeouts? My 84 Dodge is starting to suffer from the same ailments,from what I've read about 150,000 miles seems to be the bearing life on the 9.25's and my truck is just about there.

Hardest part is getting the carrier out and set back up once in. Instead of a solid shim on each side of carrier bearings like Chevy has, these have a screw in/out for the side to side setting. Took me a bit to figure that out. I used the supplied gear marker stuff to set the tooth pattern back up. I think I did okay as it has survived a 25MPH to 80MPH pedal-to-the-metal run with no noise showing up.

Sounds like you have had a good weekend. Good luck on fixing the family issues. You can always do what Mom does. Tell them get along or else, I never licked the "or else" at all.

Good news to report! Got the kids together again. They even went out for a while by themselves to talk! So I'm happy. Here's the pic for proof.

My grandmother gave me some advice when I was 19. Me and my mom were fighting and hadn't seen or talked to her for over a year.

Your family is your family and always will be. Whatever they do or say can be forgiven. Life is too short to fight with the only family you have. Because when they are gone you are the one standing with regrets you can never rectify.

She was a wise woman.

Glad to see they are speaking again.

Instead of a solid shim on each side of carrier bearings like Chevy has, these have a screw in/out for the side to side setting.

 

The adjuster has a hex shaped hole in the middle where the axle passes through.  They make an adjusting tool that goes in from the end of the housing like an axle.
