or do you just want it to get back on the way it has been for the last several hundred or thousand miles?
yeah cleaning the residue from the previous batch can be a real b*tch.

I noticed that if I indexed the pins to the next hole in the wheel that the wheel side spline carrier didn't want to slide in and out very good like it was binding. So I just kept indexing it until I got it to slide properly.

Thanks to all who have contributed to this wealth of great information. I figure I saved over $1000 by doing the front engine work, the timing belts, and the drive spline while the rims were in for new Dunlop Elite IIIs. Total cost for all (minus tires) was about $140. Of course, that's in addition to the great satisfaction and bonding with the machine. Thanks again for all your help.
