speaking of D Ray, did anyone happen to notice where he's located ?, ARKANSAS !..LOL. no..he did not teach me !..lol.
if the pinion needle bearing is bad ? ( which most times they are ! ), your gonna have fun with replacing that bearing !..lol.I’m hoping the pinion surface is ok . If not my neighbor might be able to sleeve it so I could reuse the gear set. When I get that apart I’ll know more. At this point the pinion bearing is definitely well worn. The gears look great so I’m hoping.
You need to check that pinion spur to bearing fit. If it's loose the rebuild kit should come with a steel sleeve that will fix it.More pics on the differential
