setting up a Dana 60 without a Case Spreader...

How is it done? I know how to get the carrier and gears out, but how do you guys setup a Dana 60 without a case spreader for installing?

I set up my 70 without a case spreader, I just made sure the races were seated on the carrier bearing right and then started them into the housing, once started I gave it a few taps, alternating sides, with a rawhide mallet. I seated them the rest of the way by putting the bearing caps on and cranking down on the bolts alternately.

A large part of being free is accepting that the freedom you have also will allow people to do things you don't find palatable...but the minute you attack their freedoms, you start eroding yours as well.

you didn't have to do that a couple times?(setting backlash) Seems like a pain, but then paying the big $$$ for a piece of steel is more of a pain I guess.

I had to do it 3 or 4 times. But the axle was on my garage floor, so I was able to point the pinion straight down an set the carrier in there, which is probably a whole lot easier than doing it with the axle installed.
