Seller has been less than accurate in his descriptions of parts he's selling. 5 members of this forum have been dissatisfied with the items they have received or never received them at all. A member of another forum has also been scammed for a large sum of money. This user is currently under investigation by his local authorities. It is strongly advised not to deal with this member under any circumstances.

Jon was selling vinyl decal kits as well as electric fan mounts to forum members and collected money for items he never delivered.
This is the second time Jon has fallen excessively behind on his commitments to the SyTy community.
At this time we do not recommend placing any orders with Mirrado Graphics or Jon directly until all of those who have yet to receive their orders are satisfied.

Other vendors should proceed with caution when dealing with Mr. Ward.

    I get that. I'm proposing a way possibly to work around it. By shimming the case halves apart, I can increase the distance between the ring gear and the pinion and allow for a bigger pinion. What I don't know is: How far apart do the case halves have to be shimmed to get a good pattern? 0.050"? 0.060"? 0.500"? 0.600"?

    The only way to tell is to start trying. Install the pinion and assemble the unit with washers in between the case halves and extra shim behind the left carrier bearing... Once there's a good pattern, measure everything and figure out what the thinnest shim between the case halves can be.

      It still costs us over $100 in bearings and parts to even try... I could sell you the gears if you want. They have already been cryo treated...

        I get that too. I'm fine with using whatever bearings and shims show up in the TB 3.42 diff as set-up parts for the fit check. Clearly I'd have to get some extra sets of shims to get it set up correctly, but that's what McMaster-Carr is for.

        How much do you want for the gears?
        Have they been WPC'd or micro-polished as well as cry-treated?

          This is an upper limit, because the actual pitch diameter of the ring gear is smaller than 7.25", but...

          Assuming the ring gear's pitch diameter is 7.25", then:
          3.42 pinion pitch diameter = 2.120"
          3.08 pinion pitch diameter = 2.354"

          So the 3.08 pinion is only 0.234" larger in diameter than the 3.42 pinion, which is 0.117" larger on the radius. That means 1/8" shims between the TB diff case halves should be more than enough.

          Of course that also @$$umes that the 3.08 ring gear isn't any thicker than the 3.42 ring gear. I don't know how far GM moved the flange for the 3.08 carrier, so I can't say whether that's a valid assumption or not.
