    I am wanting to know if anyone happens to have access to the photos or a pdf of the article with photos, that were originally published with this tech article. I am in the process of reassembling my 40 banjo and it would greatly help me to get ahold of these. thanks,

    If that doesn't happen, there's a book you can get on the subject:

    Brstuges, thank you so much for keeping this copy. I am deep into the assembly process now of my 1940 ford coupe rear end. I also rebuilt the transmission and purchased all my components thru Mack at Van-pelts. He has been very helpful through the process. Although I have had a good verbal understanding of the techniques I had not had a visual guide to tie it all together. Thanks again for your help. I will try to post Picts of the final project.

    Van Pelt should do a rebuild book for rearends like they did for transmissions.

    Looking for input here. Project 1940 ford banjo rebuild with new gear set. I have set the preload for the ring and for the pinion, now setting the mesh and and the pattern is not what I expected to see. I have confirmed all bearing races are fully set into all slots and moved all gaskets as far as allowed for the Axel halves. My impression is that the pinion needs to be shimmed in to the housing further. Photos attached of ring and pinion after test. Need some advice here. Thanks,
