Tlock and gears

Anyone have a good link with decent pictures and step by step directions on popping in 3,73 gears and a tlock?

I hear gears are hard and recommended to take to the mechanics for it to be done.

Aww cmon, That takes the fun out of everything. I like a challenge lol. The main thing I need better knowledge on is the bearing work and getting all of the measurements and wear patterns down. Other than that the rest of it seems only mildly difficult, maybe I am underestimating it tho

Even some nice enthusiast that love working on their stangs have said this is more of a thing for a mechanic.. More power to ya if you can do it yourself tho. I'm sure someone will chime in. If not, I think mechanic it is

Yea I'd just rather spend the money on the right tools and do it myself rather then hand it over to a mechanic and spend tool money on them.

Yea seen em, those are pretty much what I'm planning on going off of right now. Just looking for something like the bearing procedure write up they have with some pictures to go along, and maybe in a little easier terms.

Are you talking about the bearing press specifically? A hundred or two hundred bucks in tools is a better decision to me than a two hundred$ or more mechanic fee. No one on here has ever tried this before by themselves??

You need to get the gears pressed on which is around 40 dollars and then you need the tool to read and angle the gears. Which is another 100. I love doing my mods like anyone but if u mess this up you gotta buy a new set of gears. I rather just pay

Look up how to freeze the bearings, no need for a press

Interesting, I've Installed heated bearings or regular temp bearings into a heated inner race, I've never heard about actually freezing them before, I'll look it up.
