Thread: Hardtail Altered Pinion Angle????

    Hardtail Altered Pinion Angle????

    I am putting in a hardtail rear end in my 23 altered. Would you set the pinion angle at 0 or still set it down 1 or 2 degrees?

    It needs to be set straight with the output of your transmission, plus or minus what the coupler allows as a tolerance.

    How would I know the tolerance? It is a powerglide trans with a 8 3/4 crysler rear end.

    Sorry I assumed it was a coupler and didn't even think of it possibly having a short drive shaft. You would have to check with the manufacturer of your coupler to see just how much misalignment it will stand. It won't be very much.

    It is a short drive shaft not a coupler. Should it still be straight on at 0?
