Ok, since I had my carrier lincoln locked, I was gonig to put it back in tonight, and with it installed in the truck, I was gonna torque all my ring gear bolts down to spec. When I origionally took the carrier out, I marked the adjuster collers, and threaded them in EXACTLY 2 turns each, to keep things easy to remember. When I went to adjust them back, toward the end of turning the second one, It got really hard to turn. carrier has NO play in it, isn't is supposed to? I've got a few posibile causes for this in my mind.... There might be some VERY small welding spatter areas where the axles spline into, which could be making the carrier not have any play... I haven't torqued down the ring gear to spec yet, its only been pulled down with an impact, but that wouldn't cause this would it? because the ring gear is seated firmly against the carrier... or maybe I smoked crack and overlooked the adjuster and accidentially turned one out 3 turns??? I was shocked at how hard it was to turn toward the end there.. really had to pull it tight with my punch......... Whatever be the case, I'm not sure what to do now?? I'm betting if I were to put it back together right now, it would chew the gears up... Any suggestions on what I should do next??
