remaining bolts and tighten all bolts to specified
Make sure oil passages are aligned.
NOTE: Some differential carrier housings have blind
tapped holes for mounting pinion shaft assembly. If
holes are blind, use stacks of flat washers on bolts
when installing pinion shaft assembly without oil seal
retainer to prevent bolts from bottoming in blind
12. After torquing bolts, insert axle shaft into differential
so that it engages side gear and check for backlash
between clutch teeth of NoSPIN differential (Fig.
118). A backlash of approximately 5/32 inch must be
present. If proper backlash does not exist;
disassemble differential case halves and recheck for
correct assembly. After reassembly, torque case
