I take the hole cover off and run the diff low so I used the short screws. If you like the Nitro hole cover then you would need the longer screws.

Fair enough, even with my BCE chassis I still run the longer screws.

I run the stock motor mount and stock diff standoff. I have the mip chassis so i orderd the shorter ones. They never gave me issues but the diff stand off broke and i am re building and freshening up the truck and just had a issue getting one out. Thanks all

Some guys use motor spray or mineral spirits. I just used a q tip. Make sure you take the oring out if you use a chemical as it can swell or damage it. Diff fluid to top of cross pins.

really? top of the cross pins? I think I need to relook at how I do it. I've been filling it past cross pins, and putting the top diff gear in place and making sure the fluid is level with it.

The problem is the fluid gets air in it and expands with heat so it can cause leaks. Usually forces out where the out drives are. I like to leave a little space and don't have any leakage issues. Especially with the updated diff cases.

There are some great videos on youtube about diff rebuilding. use a light weight shock oil to dilute the lube 10wt etc. rotate the assy to work it in, dump and repeat. work good, no contamination.

anybody else having the problem with the king headz center pieces where if you tighten the bottom screws too much the driver terrain binds up?

Are you sure your chassis isn't bent? What chassis do you have?

its a king headz chassis. I have run it maybe twice with the chassis and it worked fine with the regular diff parts.

Hard to say without looking at it. Can you take a pic and post it? Do the mounts sit flat on the chassis with no gaps and the holes line up before you put the screws in?

It works fine when it is snug and not cranked down. All the holes line up correctly.

Try taking out the outer bearings that support the outdrives and see if it still binds. If it does then it's probably the diff. Either the case is warped or outdrives are messed up. The stock mount allows some flex and misalignment so it won't show up there. There's a small chance that one of the kh parts are machined wrong but not likely. They are done on a CNC mill, so unless the part moved during the machining process it should be good. They don't do 100% inspection so it is possible.
