i'll be sure to inspect the cylinder and piston before I put it together !..lol.

I'd guess that was 2-3 years ago you got them 5 jugs done , I think the way it went was there was a old guy had a machine shop in Slidell and he was doing them , then his son took over and I heard of a few problems , not sure when Ted took over , then right before Dick's moved to Mississippi , he got his own machine

well crap !!. it doesn't look like I am going to make any headway on this build ??. decided to start rebuilding the rear diff with new parts that jeep supplied, only to find out that when he stuck the diff together...HE DID NOT GIVE ME THE SHIM WASHERS FOR THE RING GEAR !..ROFL !!. at this rate, I might have this done around x-mas ?!..lol.

yeah fish, this is what I hate about starting from scratch..we have no idea what thickness its suppose to be ?. i'm missing the pinion gear washer as well !..lol. I guess you might be able to round up as many as you can, including the pinion gear washer, I can '' test fit '' the new ring gear and pinion gear together, and '' feel '' for a good mesh ?, and which ever ones I don't need, I could send them back to ya, other than this ?, I have no idea what to do here seeing how i'm putting this together from scratch...lol. its a new ring and pinion gear set, all new bearings and seals, I just dont have these damn shims and washer ?. i'm gonna have to have a longgggggggggg chat with jeep over this crap !!..rofl.
