Setting up gears for my 71 New Yorker 489 case. New gears, bearings and races. I am new at this so I am asking for opinions and looking for any helpful advise. I have the differential assembled with a test pinion bearing for easy shim adjustments. Pinion depth was set using ratech tool. Will be installing crush sleeve eliminator but it is not currently installed, so no preload established yet. Seal is not installed. Backlash is set at .008". Pattern doesn't look terrible but I was wondering if I should add .010 shim to get it a little deeper. Also thought I might lose a bit more depth when establishing pre-load. Thoughts?
