Axels were too long and hitting inside the posi. I measured wrong. I bottomed my tape against the pin in the posi and I should have been clipping it on the side gears. I put everything in the old ford center section, stuck it in the housing and re measured. Both axels were a 1/16th too long. Just that little bit was causing it to hit the block in the center of the posi. I ground a good 1/16th off each axel and re taperd them by hand. They turned out pretty good.

I set up my new ring and pinion in the aluminum housing and now I think the posi is bent somewhere, the pattern was moving up and down the tooth as I spun it.

I am so burnt out on this thing that now even though I am pretty sure this is whats wrong with it, I do not want to work on it.

prostreet6t9, Thank you sir, I owe you a beer.
Your welcome Hopefully that was the problem. Like 302 says.... walk away for a bit
