The center diff locking spool and the new oil pump gear mated up well. On the other side, there was about an 1/8″ gap with gear in the tail housing.
Debated on what tool would best to cut the tail housing and ended up using a reciprocating saw with a thicker 9″ blade. The tail housing is an awkward shape so I bolted it to a universal square to hold it in place. It worked well and gave a straight cut.
Next up is plugging the holes. Not covered in the guide is a race, a plastic piece, and a metal dowel that had to be removed.
Tail housing back on and ready to go back into the chassis. I wish I had a pretty plate like the 5-speeds.
