Having problem re-assembling the carrier halves after replacing the clutch/disks. Is it possible they expanded too much after soaking? Meant to do it overnight only, but ended up soaking for about 24hours. I made carefull attention to re-assemble properly so I know that's not the problem. I measured the combined clucth/disks I took out against the new ones and there is a difference. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Does anyone have an exploded view of the carrier for a ford 9"?
Thanks

I will measure tonight. I know the disks are the same, but the clutchs are a little wider. Overall I think about 1/4" or so. I will caliper them to determine the exact difference. Thanks for the link.

the carrier halves are not gonna fit together very easy. You an use a press to carefully compress together so you can install the flat head screws. Bassicly the clutch pack is preloaded by the four springs in the center block.

I slip some bolts through in about 3 or 4 places and then using a nut slowly cinch down the bolts until the two halves come together. At that point you can add the screws with loctite to hold it all together.
