Mute point. Everytime he opens his mouth he makes it clear that he was just
trolling and doesn't believe half the stuff he says. Hell he can't even keep
his stories strait half the time. It just goes to show the not only is the mind
a terrible thing to waste, its a terrible thing to loose as well.
The manufacturing tolerances of the pinion bearings are way
tighter than the choices you have for pinion depth shims, IOWs,
the bearings are made closer to size than you can account for
with a .001" pinion shim.
Replace the bearings and use the shim that's in there now.
You could hone out a new rear bearing to use to check pinion
depth, but I wouldn't install it permanently, you'd risk it
spinning on the pinion gear and causing unwanted damage.
