I spent about 1.5 hours trying to figure out this pinion preload with the Ratech solid pinion spacer, and new bearings, and I am either not getting any, or what seems to be too much preload. I am using the park tools inch lb wrench. If I turn the wrench slowly, it reads about 40 on breakaway, then settles to 30-32in lb. If I start turning the wrench faster it reads about 40inlb :bang:. Will this be alright to run, or should I mess with it some more and try to lessen the preload? Help would be greatly appreciated!!
