Re: HELP...I need a stock sami rear quick!
Combining info from 2 threads, You have welded diffs, and your going through R&Ps.
It sounds like either you are not getting the gears set correctly, you have left spatter or other contamination in the assembly, or If you are using a filler, (Lead or aluminum) it is flakeing off and damageing the gears. Inspect the remains closely, including the gear oil, to see what you can learn. Look at the teeth wear patterns. Something isnt right.
Just locking the spool should do nothing to the R&P. Sure, the axle splines and splined portion of the side gears will show extra wear, you might even twist axles more often, but the R&P shouldn't be affected.
