I made this video just before assembling my Ford 8.8 differential. I thought it would be a good idea to cover some of the basics before I dove into this part of the build.
One of the most important take aways from this whole thing is the difference between face hobbed, and face milled gears. They are set up differently and if you don't know what you have, you could make a lot of time consuming mistakes.
