Oh well. It's still really useful if you know how to search. Maybe one day I'll get some weird organizational drive and pull all the good posts.

Exactly. Being on call for decades, and having automated systems that page or text you when something's up, makes one turn off email notifications for such things as forum updates. Mt.net is an on-demand service for me, not a push service. The one useful exception is the tagging feature.

There is new inbox filtering, that separates into a bunch of different categories. I rarely "browse" my email anymore. Its search only.

Jeebus Ian, do you still have AOL or something? How much of that stuff is legitimate?

My wife still uses her AOL mail and doesn't understand why I need to clean her laptop every 3 months. She's banned from the other computers in the house.

And I setup all her stuff with a Gmail account a long time ago.

This is split between work and home, probably 75% work, 25% home. 95% of it is "legitimate" in that it's stuff I signed up for, but I certainly don't read it all. A lot of it gets filtered into folders to look at later, but whenever Google updates their mail app and resets the "alert on new email" bit the phone gets really noisy until I shut it off.

I regeared my friends dana 44 in his mud truck. That was a freaking pain in the *** I probably had over 10 hours in that thing. Didn't help that I had to do it twice since we din't know a tooth was cracked on the ring gear. Does that have a crush sleeve on the pinion or do you have to set bearing preload with shims?

Crush sleeve. I think I got that part right so far. Its the pattern that is killing me. It seems to do the opposite of what the instructions say.

Crush sleeve is easy. With shims every time you change the pinion depth shims you have to reset the preload shims. According to that pic it looks like the pinion needs to moved out/away from the diff(smaller pinion shim) and the diff might need to be a hair closer to the pinion (move a shim from one side of the diff to the other).

Its a ford 9" So pinion depth is set with pinion carrier shims. Which I only have 2 of. And neither is the correct size. Moving it side to side is as simple as tightening and loosening the bearing retainers.

Its way easier than a dana.

Some guy offered to send me a bunch of shims. So now those are in the mail. I'll finish this...someday.

The outer CV joints feel quite stiff. On both of them. Is this normal?
