It was now time to start the transformation. The rearend cover was removed and the gear oil drained. The pinion shaft was pulled out after the 1/2- inch retaining-bolt was removed.

The axles were then pushed in enough so we could remove the C-clips from each axle end.

Both spider gears and their thrust washers were then removed. The passengerside axle was pulled out about 6 inches, and the side gears and their thrust washers were removed. it's very important that the thrust washers come out, so make sure that they are not stuck to the case.

The rearend is now ready for the No-Slip unit. The installation was started by verifying that the gaps in the coupler teeth were aligned with the synchro ring. The passenger-side coupler was installed first (it won't go in through the opening in the case if the ring gear side is on) making sure that the widest gap in the synchro gear (arrow) was facing towards the rear of the car. The driver's side coupler was then installed making sure the widest gap in the synchro ring faced the front of the car.

Some wheel-bearing grease was applied to the drivers' teeth and to the saddle springs before installing them to hold them in place. This grease will hold the drivers to the couplers while the unit is being installed.

The C-clip was then reinstalled on the passenger-side axle, and the driver and spacer were installed onto the coupler making sure that the paddle was facing towards the rear of the car. if the spacer paddle and the synchro gear paddle opening are aligned properly, the teeth should be fully engaged all the way

The slotted spacer was inserted into the slotted driver, making sure to align the paddle and paddle opening, as well as the slots.

There are two drivers, one has a slot to slide one of the C-clips through and the other does not. The non-slotted driver goes on the passenger side. The non-slotted spacer was then inserted into the passenger-side driver making sure to seat the paddle in the opening on the driver (missing extended

It was then installed onto the driver's side coupler with the paddle facing the front of the car. Verify that all the teeth are fully engaged all the way around the unit.
