    Hey guys I'm trying to change the 18 tooth pinion with a 16 tooth pinion but as you can see the 16 isn't as thick as the 18 and it leaves a big gap behind the pinion when installed,thus allowing the clutch bell to float in and out a considerable amount:nono: Are there spacers that go behind it?I bought the truck used with the 18/46 set up already on it.And I don't see any spacers on the FG parts pics either.:helpsmilie:
