If it's a full spool you will have to setup the carrier preload and backlash as well.

I didnt get real in depth. Seems to me its the same kinda question as "how do I rebuild my motor". Theres a ton of steps and he would need the right tools and a good manual or something at least for the first few times. He wanted a quick easy answer to something that isnt always cut and dry.
