ford 9\" problems
Heres the deal. A friend just bought a 73 bronco with a ford 9 inch rear end. Once we got the engine running and went to drive away the rear drive shaft turned but the bronco did not move. the drive shaft could be turned by hand yet the car did not move. assumeing the ring gear blowen we pulled the axles and 3rd member.
the axles are not broken and splines are good. the spider gear splines look good and the ring and pinion are good. when we put the axles in the 3rd member with it out of the case. everything acts as it should. (we turn the pinion and the axles turn. needless to say I am very confussed and starting to question my sanity here.
Has any one seen anything similar. or is this some sort of fluk.
Thanks for any help.
