Hi, I removed the stock rf1a from my 88' pickup today and I noticed it has a bearing retainer clip preventing the input shaft and counter shaft from pushing "out".
However...my dual cases (both reduction units), do not have this clip, or any provision for it. Is this going to be an issue down the line, or is that retainer clip not providing that much extra insurance? In my crawl box, I can pull the input gear and counter shaft out quite far. Definitely at least 3/8"
The case out of my truck:
