There should be a little play. Impossible to see but you should feel just a little back lash all around the gears for a proper mesh. If there is no play it is too tight and binding. I have never shimmed my diffs and have not had a problem so far.

Maybe it was just worn out ? They are a reall tight fit on the pinions shaft , maybe it was damaged when you took it off ?
Truck was 8 packs old. Never pulled pinion out the drive shaft holds it in. So ur shimming it for a tighter gear mesh? Which puts more strain in pinion bearing. But by removing all shims from in between pinion and bearing will take stress away but will open up mesh . And create a nosie diff

would it be wise to use two of the paper like seals that come with the diffs to help with the leaks on the center diff? Or is there any little trick you guys might have?

Thanks

We are workign on diff cases currently but basically a little black grease on both sides of the paper seal will help.

No I believe the 8ight uses std 8X14 flanged bearings for the outdrives.

the Ten series uses 12X18 bearings.

I am not sure you can use the same shims.

Why would it put any more strain on the bearing than not shimming ? You may have had a bad bearing in there from the start , it happens .....

Anything that fits a 36mm motor will work.

Obviously.Im just saying if he glued the metal insert and it isnt seated all the way 2 gaskets fixes this without buying new parts.
