Default Re: Locked-up rear end

My 29 Special Coupe was trying to lock up when coasting, on acceleration it would pull with no problem but was making noise. When I disassembled rear I found the pinion bearing preload and lock nuts had come loose and traveled up drive shaft. I had to build rear with new ring gear and pinion, bearings and gaskets. The old ring and pinion looked ok but was a 4-11 ratio, I put in 3-54 and am very pleased. Dwayne
