9.375 Parts? Big Buick

Postby Wildcat_65 » Mon Jul 31, 2006 3:33 pm

I have a posi out of a 71 Centurion to install in my 71 Centurion.
It looks like I need a "crush sleeve" and a pinion seal to trade these.
Are these sleeves available for the 9.375" pinion?
Or should I install the original ring on the posi carrier and not mess with changing the pinion?

Oh and on the gears you should not mix and match them even if they are the same ratio. They are a matched set and will probably wear quicker and or make noise or plain old prematurely fail. Give me a day to check out this beast. Jim

Right! I know mixing them is not an option. What I was thinking is either

1 replace pinion and ring w/posi, possibly requiring new crush sleeve.
or
2 keep current pinion in place, pull carrier, swap rings put current ring on posi carrier, re-install.

I had not thought of option 2 till I was writing the post!

Thanks Jim

Well definetely if the seal is good and your happy with the gears you have in it. Yes just replace the posi and bolt that ring gear up and double check the pattern and the backlash. .005 -.008 and go have some fun....lol. Jim
