Default Price to build Ford 9 inch

What is the going rate to assemble a Ford 9"? I have a completely clean and stripped chunk with new master bearing set, new gears and new spool.

Thanks, Dave

About $100 to $125 to set the gear up.

You normally get what you pay for unless your buyung stolen parts, in that case your just helping the problem.

I hope it was a buddy deal instead

OK I may have confused some people.
Chunk assembly only - set pinion shim, press bearings, adjust backlash.

Thanks, guys.

If I dissamble one, I can look at wear pattern, check shims and using math, calculate the new shim thickness from the old set up.

This was a totally new set up and I don't own a depth kit.
