But if you do get the transmission free it sounds nicer than transmission with binds and seized bearings (a car with seized bearings can't really go as quick with a car with no seized bearings)

Yeah....you can't deny the sound of a free transmission. They have a very soft whirring sound. Its the sound of speed!

Motor out & Wheels on

Unless you are a really good driver you shouldn't have to worry about it being that free.....If it only spins 5 seconds and it spins smoothly and freely that 5 seconds...I'm cool

I agree after freeing up my drive train the car sounded so much different.

Dave,...I did the drive train alignment yesterday and it does make a lot of difference.. It's is totally an art to get the drive train feel smooth and quite... eventhough my drive train will spin not more than 5 sec, I am satisfied with it and will slowly learn how to get more... perhaps Dave can teach me how to prep the bevel gear..

How much horizontal play we should have on the drive shaft???

Keep at it and you be able to get that Fish quiet...(yes it can be done) ..as far as the bevel gear horizontal play....as little as possible..but not to the point were you are binding.

put the shields back on else the balls would catch cold , dirt and suchlike.
Nope the balls won't fall out, good luck!

They won't fall out, but when they get worn and gritty....lets just say, when they go, they go! little balls, retaining rings and internal pieces will spill out everywhere. When you're tunning with one or no shields, you have to be very conscious to keep them oiled because there's nothing holding the oil in there. However, the benefits are much greater than with two sheilds.
