Post Installing a mini spool

Has anyone ever installed a mini spool in a 9" rear end? I've got one that I'd like to use. Any help would be great.

<IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0"> I have had a mini spool in my 9 inch for about 6 years now . Basically you are removing the spider gears and shims and installing the mini spool in their place . The ring gear will have to be removed so you can remove the roll pin and the center pin . After you have installed the mini spool the ring gear will have to be set up , unless you were really good at marking the locations of everything . Mini spools are great until you have to back up around a corner, but hey , you can't make forward progress by going backwards ! <IMG SRC="smilies/jester.gif" border="0">

seting a ring gear with the same pinion already setup should be easy. I am one to talk I am waiting on help seting up my 60 but with a mini spool all you should have to do is set the backlash to .008
