Well the spider type was one thing, a steel cap on the RH side is just BS to sell someone something they don't need. I never believed in doing that or telling someone one thing and then not doing it.

To each his own but some of those threads on custom diff's have really pushed the limit of integrity for the profession. The sad part is there isn't anyone there that seems to realize what they see isn't what was offered. I hear about it because they get drawn in with someone offering lower prices and once they commit find a whole different deal goes down and some call to ask me to take on the build. I suppose it's nothing new in the automotive game it's just online now.

Thanks rtj for the info. And thanks Gary as well.
I will give it a try again to move the pattern. Pity that I cannot be sure of the number of cut. Another set back then..

Here is a set of Tom's gears I set up. These are 5 cut. Look at the teeth on your gear set, if you can see the Toe end is shorter then the heel end they are 5 cut. If the heights are the same they are 2 cut but I don't recall any 2 cut on original vette gear sets.

This is part of the build that many fail at because it is very time consuming- setting up a shim, lash, pattern, break down, clean, change and do it all again. Takes my about 40 minutes to do that change over.

Thanks Gary much appreciated. I have an even older GM's R&P so I will check the dimensions. And yes, time consuming but . I decided to work on it only in the morning and do something else the rest of the time , that way I can think calmly about and find solutions.
Thank you again .

Alright ! talking about solution !
Out with the old and in with a new one.

I cannot find if the R&P is a 2 or 5 cut and comparing to a 5 cut it looks the same for me and measure the same as well. So as I can't say that I trust the work of the previous guy, better to start new. Just more money !!
With a 3.73 from Tom's, my patterns should now match Gary's !
