    I have a service manual for the power lock for the dana60 and they show a "case spreader" to remove the carrier/ring gear. How much was the lockrite and where did you get it?

    if the pin is still in carries you just need to wiggle the lock rite and it should go in. and the dana axles are tight fit on carrier to case. most use a BIG pry bar and or case spreeder.

    Wait, you cant just spin the carrier around and push the pin back in? You should be able to do that, you dont have to take the whole carrier out. If you want to, then get 2 big prybars both on the top and bottom of the ring gear bolts, or one on the bottom on the bolt side and the top of the gear side. Remember to put the caps back in the same spot.
