Has anyone ever removed the 8 rivets that hold the ring gear to the carrier in a '29 rear end? I know that most if not all the Durants and Stars had this configuration. I need to match up a good carrier with a good ring gear and was wondering if anybody had done this already, i.e., can you replace the rivets with bolts & nuts and what else to watch out for. Phil
I am sure I saw something about this on the web somewhere. think it can be done but the article I saw explained how to do it --Proper sequence of bolting the new one in - I will look for it tomorrow and see if maybe I can find it .
Phil --cant find the article I read. I am quite sure it said to tighten 4 bolts first -then the other 4 after - In a square pattern. Just snub up--then tighten . I know I read it somewhere. Sure got a good memory but its awful short
