Probably an ignorant question to most of you but I don't want to over cut and ruin the sleeve. I think that the key way has to all show but I do not know exactly how far the pinion gear should be put on the shaft when finished. Probably not asking what I am wanting to know quite right but any thoughts or advise would be appreciated. I didn't disassemble this so I had nothing to measure or go by and the modifications doesn't show in the Ford manual.(oops) I have a screw driver in the hole for the universal joint to make sure it lines up with the drive pin hole.

Never used that type of modern bearing pinion set up.


But...that pinion gear must be all the way on the taper end of the drive shaft, its the press fit of the taper that holds fast the pinion gear, the key in the keyway of the shaft is just for final security.

Some additional photos from other's post on Fun Projects style modern pinion taper roller bearing setup.


Assembly of the parts


bearing on and amount of driveshaft taper needed


best to seat that gear on firmly with a brass mallet over the key and key way
