    I know there's an electrical section but this didn't seem to fit. I'm swapping out the 2.3 in my 91 ranger with a 4.0 from a 91 explorer.

    need help with 5.38s in a d44

    this thing has had me running in circles. we finally got everything put together and the ring is barely touching the pinion! so we shim it all the way over as far as we can, and its still barely even catching the tooth. its like the ring still needs to come towards the pinion another 1/16-1/8"...

    tomorrow if the weather permits, im going to a pick and pull to see if i can find a used manual bw1534 tcase. my question is, is there anyway to know if its in ok condition before buying it? do i just shift through all the ranges? hate to buy one 2hrs from where i live, and have it not work.
