Charts for Quick reference:

















1) put inner bearing in hub
2) slide large shim over axle all the way up to the back of the axle
3) slide axle/bone into hub carrier
4) slide small shim onto axle through hub carrier
5) push outter bearing into hub carrier

using that i'm able to put my normal male silverback gorilla wheel nut tightening job and there's no binding. in the pictures that come with the shims (the pic socket posted) it seems like they want you to slide both shims onto the axle before sliding the axle into the hub carrier and like i said, that doesn't work.



I've traditionally done the diff screw head on the left side (driver's side), but have since switched to the Right side (passenger side) regardless of transmission type (3 gear RM vs 3 gear MM and 4 gear MM).

Kdub (Kurt Wenger, former AE designer) had this to say on the matter:

The right rear is the way the AE manuals state (or used to state). It really shouldn't matter since you go around turns both left and right.

I've just purchased a B6D and looking at what I need to make it the carpet version to run indoors. AE now sells a conversion kit to make the transmission laydow, so that saves a couple of bucks. The best I can tell, you need the gear diff, new front tower and the front arms to make a B6D a B6

91703 Gear Diff ($38)
91673 Gullwing Front Arms ($8)

BTW... for people running the Exotek Battery strap. You guys know where to get a longer turnbuckle to replace the one that came with the kit?

Hello Phillip F,

It looks like you have to twist the battery hold down plate by 180* to get the tunnbuckle mounted on the propper place!?

Yes. But the brace wont be resting on the center top surface of the battery.

There's not too much they could add to the kit really. It's pretty well appointed in 'team kit' form. So don't hold your breath.

Looking at there web page & the pics it appears they have the battery sides slid back closer to the motor as well & the brace the opposite direction, it doenst look like it made to have the battery that far forward

It actually tells you in their manual that you can get a longer turnbuckle if you need it ...BUT, when you go to the website, a longer turnbuckle does not exist. was just wondering how do I determine the size of this turnbuckle and plastic end so I can just buy it from another company.
