79 Cherokee Build.

Well I'm almost done. I changed the QT for a Dana 18 twin stick. I bought a Novak overhaul kit and rebuilt the case about 400 miles back. The case started making a nasty racket so i pulled it apart again and found the main gear had a broken tooth and the bearing shaft had damaged. Looks like the shaft was not hardened right. It showed a uneven wear marks and metal was pealed off. Novak sent me another rebuild kit and I'm going to send back the gear and shaft so they can see what happened to there kit. Has this happened to anyone else? Any Ideas why?
