I am changing the diff bearings and the crown wheel and pinion and I could do with any tips, hints or OE data specs.
I think there is a crush washer in there too, any ideas where I might get hold of one ? Rimmers don't seem to have any.
The spacers have not been available for years I know a lot of people who have reshaped them over a bar of steel, not ideal but have not had any problems.
You will need a bloody big socket and spanner to undo the pinion nut and a method to hold it still, this is what i use, a ring spanner, a old SD1 exstention shaft a BMW M30 crankshaft locking tool !!
As far as overhaul req normal axle overhaul skills and tools,
A good friend has uploaded the workshop manual onto the tinter net, i can supply you with a link if that helps, it has a section on setting up and overhauling the 5 speed axle, same as SD1
