D30 carrier clearance issue w/powertrax no slip
Hello guys, first post for me here. Search the forum and found nothing on this subject. I installed the powertrax no slip per instruction booklet that came with the locker. Carrier remained in the housing. Install went good, the go/ no go gauge check was good, but I noticed in back of carrier the gap was less, moved carrier 180 deg. and go/no go gauge was good still narrow gap on pinion side of carrier. Continued forward with install to the wheel test had trouble with this, passenger side had trouble staying locked in. So I jiggled the locker with screwdriver after awhile wheel tested passed. Thought maybe to much grease was applied during install. Closed up the axle for test drive on snow. Tested drive failed lots of ratcheting and no lockin of front tires.
Removed the carrier to disassemble. Noticed rubbing inside of carrier, don't think I can posted a pic but here's a summary. Coupler doesn't not rub, but the driver rubs ( round part not the flat side, the ends where pinion shaft goes through ) driver and coupler together rubs on carrier right where driver meets the coupler when driver teeth are fully engaged. Anyway I clearanced the carrier and reassembled wheel tested passed with flying colors, tested drive was awesome and love it now.
Sorry for the book but wanted you to understand
Anybody else have this happen
