Well I had a few bolts that look like they may have bottomed out. But, they thread far enough into the Yukon and new Motive gear that i have that they should not bottom out. I measured and they go in further than the thickness of the posi so they should be good. The Ford gear is not drilled and tapped as deep as the others so they may have bottomed or came real close on the Ford gear. I went ahead and ground off a 1/16 inch off the bolts and ran them threw a die to straighten the threads. I am at a loss; I am running out of theoryís as to what it could be. The only thing left is the posi and maybe the housing not being straight. My axel slide right in with ease, no binding at all so I donít see how it could be the housing. I am about ready to fix my 10 bolt and put it back in the car, maybe next winter....I dont want to ruin another ring and pinion until I know for sure what it is.
