According to the service manual, the new ring gear is supposed to be pressed onto the carrier. When Moore slipped the new gear on, the gap between the gear and carrier flange was longer than the retaining bolts. Instead of pressing the gear on the rest of the way, Moore used bolts that are longer than stock to draw the gear on, then he replaced them with the stock ring-gear bolts. He put red Loctite on the threads prior to torquing them.
