To anyone with experience with a non-crush sleeve pinion HP D30: I need to make setup bearings for the pinion as well, right?
Sure, go ahead bud. These are my second and third axles undergoing a rebuild and my 1st regear. This is all new to me as well.Do you mind if I ask a couple questions about gearing set-up on your thread? I will be starting to build my axles soon and there are a couple things I'm curious about?
I had a hard time finding the Koyo brand bearings that were the staple bearing in both of my USA standard gear rebuild kits. I found the HP D30 Carrier Bearings on Amazon, and found the inner pinion roller on eBay. It took a couple of hours of sleuthing on the interwebs.Thanks for your input I might be tracking down some set-up bearings if I can't use the old ones. Good advice!
LOL... HA! Yeah you betcha...I go away for a few months and come back to find you are still building gearsets. Boy howdy am I lost.
