Default Moser 9" end play ?

I just put together my new fab 9" from Moser. It has gm ends with the big ford bearings. After I put the discs brakes on which are also a new set up from strange I noticed when you grab the axle flange there is some end play. About 1/16 of a inch. Is this normal? The bracket for the discs brakes has a recess in it which clears the bearing this is what retains the axle. Also I had to take some of the caliper down to fit my wheels how much clearance do I need? I have about three pieces of paper not much I know but did not want to take anymore off the calipers than I have too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have play in the axle, it sounds like you have a flush mount housing end and may need a different retaining plate that accomodates that housing end.

This was a complete set up from Moser. The bearing sticks out about 1/8 of an inch out of the housing. The recess in the brake mount clears over the bearing the recess is about 3/16" deep. This makes up the 1/16" inch of play. The retainer fits on the out side of the brake mounting bracket. Both Strange and Moser brake kits come this way. When you the pull the axle out it hits the back of the recess on the brake mount. Thanks for the reply.

Did you call Moser? It sounds like you have an incorrect bearing or backing plate/ retainer. I would give them a call and give the company an opportunity to help you.

They make spacers that go in there. I have a strange brake set-up that came off another members car and his rear end needed them. Mine however did not.

Oh and this is common with moser housing ends. The strange engineering ends are not like this which is what I have.

As stated you have a flush mount housing end and I believe its a .140? difference.

Scroll down this is basically what you need http://www.sjmmanufacturing.com/cam_brk_lt1.html not positive who makes the best etc but you get the idea.

Hope this helps!

Just talked to Matt at Moser. They are sending me out shims and new oil seals today no charge. There should be no play what so ever as most of you have said. Just wanted to say that there customer service was great even with there phones down(fast e-mails). Thanks for the reply's it was a big help.
