Ok so i have finally givin up on sleddin and decided to build again,, I have Motive gear 4cyl 5.29s and a 4cyl Yukon Full spool. The Ring will not bolt to the spool, the gear is seems to be to small of dimater. I got the part # for the spool and refrenced it to the yukon site and it should be correct, Is it possible the sent me a V6 spool by accident? if any one can tell from the pics? I also Bolted the 5.29 R gear to my old carrier and it fits correct so i know that my gears are right.

here's a few pics,, and the sweet Mac race pressing kit i scored

the ID on the spool were the ring gear seats it liek 1/8 to 1/2 to large.

when i did mine it wouldn't go on either,

I put the ring in really hot water for about 5 minutes and put the entire carrier out into the snow and it droped on like butter....

The 7.8 and 8 are the same thing its just easier to say 8 inch. that spool does look different, This site has lots of good info that can help http://www.gearinstalls.com/index.htm

Also he covers a v6 spool in a 4cyl 3rd here http://www.gearinstalls.com/damen.htm

Hope that helps and you'll be ready for maylong [36]
