(above & right) The pinion went in first by lubing up the pinion bearing with oil, aswell as the splines. We started the splines on the yoke by lightlytapping it with a hammer. Then we greased the pinion nut. The pinion nuthas to crush the crush sleeve. This must be done very carefully. If yougo too far, you can't go back. The pinion ultimately should requirebetween 15- and 20-inch-pounds to turn. Guys like Eddie can spin it byhand and tell if it's tight or just right.
