This can't be good can it?  The center pin isn't supposed to move like that is it?

(turn the sound up)

Looks like a little wear in the center pin or even the carrier.. I've seen much worse though.. can cause premature spider wear. good time for a locker upgrade or you could lincoln lock it..

I'm trying to diagnose an ongoing issue with the rear wheels wanting to lock up.

Yes, a locker will go in soon.

I looked at them....   :?  Not real sure what I'm looking for.  There weren't any strange burs or scores on any of the gears.

I ended up in the rear diff trying to diagnose what I've been calling a transmission issue, and the loose/knocking cross pin worried me.

I don't drive it much at all anymore, but am hoping to have it together before 7/15 for the Ivy opening.

Is the bolt/pin that holds the center pin there/tight?

It was tight, from what I could tell.  I couldn't find a socket (even at local parts stores, forgot about Harbor Freight) that fit it right.  (12pt, 8mm)

It threads near the head of the bolt, and knowing that, it appears to me that the center pin's hole may be wallowed out?

I'm half considering it.   :cheers:

I feel that I couldn't hurt anything any further, and like I said,  it's not my DD anymore.

so who knows what they're doing and would weld this for me?  Preferably as close to Cross Lanes as possible, if this is the reason that THIS is happening, and why I ended up inside the diff last weekend.
