replacing 8.25 ring gear

Recommended Posts

Had a moment of panic when i went to remove the ring gear and the first couple of bolts snapped off. 

Thought about it that night and suddenly a lightbulb went off. Left hand threads? 


Sure enough - yes, you can remove the ring gear if you use an impact gun regardless of which way you "loosen" the bolts. Once the heads snap off, just tap the gear off with a hammer. :))

Yes the ring gear has reversed threads. I just did this on my 8.25 when I regeared to 4.56. What gears are you going to? At least on going up to 4.56 you'll have to grind one of the ring teeth down to get clearance for the cross pin. Just a heads up.
