    I am rebuilding my dana 18. I had to drive the speedometer drive gear off of the shaft with a drift before cleaning. Now the speedometer drive gear is clean and ready for reassembly, but it now spins freely on the output shaft. What keeps this gear from spinning on the output shaft? Thanks for your help.

    OK, after looking at the situation some more, I think the speedometer drive gear is compressed against the bearing and the companion flange by the companion flange nut. Does anybody remember? -Also- where can I find the torque settings for reassembly?
