So whats the best way to put the center "idler" gear back into a Dana300...it's got about 50 needle bearings a couple plates and some rings...how do you put it all together at the same time?

I'm guessing we had the right thing going sunday, sticking those shims in with grease, and the broom handle to hold the bearings, you may try the freeze method and stick that center idler gear assembly in the freezer. to shrink it slightly.

Sooooo i got it back together last night...actually went together on the first try!! I greesed everything with axle greese so the needle bearings wouldn't move around a lot. To install the needle bearings i cut a piece of closet rod (wooden dowel about 1 1/8 diam.) and stuck it in the hole...then put each needle bearing in the hole one at a time, put the two "rings" on, one on each end of the open hole, then i "glued" the outter washers to the transfer case casing (on the inside) and it all slid to gether with little trouble...i was actually surprised...i thought i'd be there for hours...i then scraped all the gasket surfaces down and applied a lite layer of RTV silicone, tonight i'll add fluid.
