Anyone?!? I pulled the seal and the adjuster can move very easily, im guessing i can just reset the preload on the outer bearing if the inner seal has not moved?!

the adjuster will rotate easiliy without the seal in. That being said....not only does the adjuster set preload on the side bearings, they are also used to adjust backlash on the gearset. BOTH are critical settings and unless you have the right tools to set both accurately, find someone who does.

Backlash seems good, iv installer many ptos on highway trucks and the backlash seems to be around 10 thousands of an inch. I can tell just by touch. im going to try it ,before i rip the diff right out. Adjusting the diff is easy with a screw driver and a small hammer as long as you dont slip it and hit the threads.
