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.

OCRC is not really what I'd call high grip.

That's only during competitions they grip it up that much. Usually it's electrons and dirtwebs. But if Rich really wanted to drive it there he could just get a laydown case and motor plate and be ready to roll

I know that tracks like OCRC they're still running the B6D tranny......but after it got really burned in, they were running the laydown in the B6D. Since they just changed the layout.....back to stand up

I think they could have done a better job covering the spur gear on the laydown gearbox.
