Nope, from the side and touches the back of the ring gear, outside the carrier

Cool man, thanks.

So is it just a bolt or is there some kind of roller on it? If it's just a bolt how tight up against the ring gear is it? Just barely touching, a few thousandth spacing?

I'll put my newbie name tag back on now.

Typically a bolt with a special pad on the end that is touching the back face of the ring gear. The idea is to prevent the few thousands of movement, so you wouldn't want a gap.

I have always tightened them up until I get resistance, and then back it off just a hair.

On a load bolt you definitely want to back it off a few thou. Metal sliding on metal contact is not good.

Here is a few update pictures.

1st fully machined RJ70, load bolt, skid plate, fill and drain plug.

Prototype 5.38, 35 spline pinion gears are in and setup really nice!!

A little tuneup on the core boxes and will be running some pre-pruduction units for testing!!!

im probably missing something.

But in comparing these 2 pinions, I suspect the top one is the new super RJ70 and the bottom is a d60. it seems from the pic that the rj70 part has beefier gears but has a smaller shaft at the end/less splines. SO less strong???

you're completly backwards. look at the splined portion of the pinion, you'll see the bottom is much larger, as stated 35sp pinion. it also will use a larger ID outer pinion bearing.

got it
I assumed the pinion with the white pattern ink on it (smaller od one on top) went with the white pattern ink ring gear on the new carrier

Both gears are HP70, the 35 spline pinon is 5.38, the small pinion is 5.14
The one that is in the case is 5.38

I might have missed it but do you know the ground clearance difference between this and a D60 Rockjock?

RJ 70-RJ 60= RJ 10, so the difference is 10.

I will word my question better.

What is the measurement from axletube centerline to the bottom of the differential housing on the RJ60 and the RJ70. I can try to work the rest out in my feeble little mind.
