It's totally up to you.I'd hate to have you tear apart your rear drive on my account.

I ordered some  extreme pressure grease and it won't be here until next week anyway.

I really do appreciate the help i'm getting here.

@aermacchi250, I pulled the flange from this drive and it comes out with the crown gear. Then you can simply take the spacer out and the inside of the washer is in full view through the inner seal. The washer is lying against the outer needle bearing and race, but is not captured. Yet, it can only be lifted about a cm before contacting the inner seal which is captured by the inner bearing.

Plenty of access to tap it back straight, I suppose. Be careful replacing the flange as to not damage or pinch the big O-ring.

Does the washer rest against something underneath the needle Bearing outer race,as the washer is still captive and did not fall out after i removed the Needle bearing outer race.I'd hate to tap on it if it's against Aluminum.

With my Luck i'll crack the Case.

The outer perimeter of the washer is evidently resting against the outside of the case where the race you split is seated.  FWIW, this spacer is also tight. I couldn't center it with finger pressure, but had to drift it to the center.

Thank you Docc.I'll take a better look at it tomorrow.Since it doesn't rotate all that far i think it may be ok

Thank you so much again for all your Help and Effort you're putting into my question.I truly Appreciate it.

Perfect, Marty! That is such excellent documentation of the inside of the bevel box!

Here is what I saw lifting out the flange /crown gear and setting the spacer aside:

It is very telling how much corrosion can occur on the inside of the washer and around the spacer. The ruined reardrive I have is testimony that this infiltration, through the outboard needle cage, can extend to the nose of the crown wheel and ruin the sealing surface. Keep those outboard needle bearings, inner race, and washers well greased at every tire change, y'all!:

 I don't know about your "luck" with seals but mine is not good.

Having done this a few times I always have a set of seals. If it is a first time project I order 2 of every seal in there.

Just seems to be the prudent thing to do.... Just in case Murphy rears his head

And be sure to lift the guts out from each side at the same time

I see that you have already ordered the bearing set, but for anyone else thinking of checking their own RH side bearing, it is made up of standard parts that may be cheaper to buy from your local bearing shop.
