I am going to start the removal of the ford 9" assembly today to install a spool. Is there any special tricks I will need in doing this? I know I have to take the axles loose and the posi unit assembly should come out fairly easy but with the luck I have nothing will go as planned.Thanks for any suggestions

Measure your ring gear backlash with the posi still installed before you disassemble- this way when you put it back together you can adjust the spool to the same backlash setting. Use locktight on the ring gear. Some times if you freeze the spool and warm up the ring gear it will assemble easier. Take your time. Bob

Thanks for the reply, The easy part is done. I got the assembly out and will start the spool tomorrow night.
