G80 in Reverse

I searched and didn't find an answer. It may be a dumb question, but does the G80 lock in reverse or just when going forward? I have a 14 bolt and I know it works going forward but noticed this past weekend while going backwards only one tire would spin. Thanks for the info.

Re: G80 in Reverse

I think it only works in forward aswell. Reason being, for the first time a couple weeks ago I did a nice smokey burn out forward and it left a 30ft patch with both tires, then I kinda floored it in reverse and only one tire left a mark. Ya I have one too.

Re: G80 in Reverse

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure everything was working OK. I'm just waiting for things to start happening. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: G80 in Reverse

I have the govlock in my 97 with the 14ff, and I don't think it locks in reverse. Both tires spins in the snow [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: G80 in Reverse

Nope its a 10bolt and I grind my teeth everytime I do something stupid.. But I really have only did it once on dry pavement, when I do stupid stuff its usaully on wet sandy/gravel roads and other off road terrains.
Anyone know if a halfton 14sf out of the 1500hd crewcabs would work in mine? Thats what I'd like to get when my dies, because I'd also get disc [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: G80 in Reverse

If you mean 1500 HD as the newer one with that name, and not the older ones with the higher GVWR (or whatever the abreviation is) , that won't work. The newer 1500HD's are 8 lug. Be careful doing stuff on wet pavement, because a spinning tire going from wet to dry pavement is a good way to break $hit. Quick traction gains just kill things like axle shafts....

Re: G80 in Reverse

It works in reerse on my truck. two perfectly even lengthed black marks about 10-12 feet long in my shop parking lot. Did this just two nights ago. This is on a 14FF axle with no additive added to the rear since i have owned it. and yes the fluid has been changed many times.
