I did,Only Mike replied.He has just under 100 sets.But the pinion shaft is to short.Made to fit the Skellenger rearend.He wants $200 a set which is fine if I could use both pieces.

Oh ,I tested the rear end, same squealing.I'm not doing any more until I get a new set of gears.Now I'm thinking it might be the case.Maybe the bearing cradles are not holding the bearings in tight and there moving around.

I'm attaching a link look at the photo of the axel and ring gear. The dog bone cups keep both the axel and ring gear from shifting ayay from the pinion under load

It didn't work.I should of put in new gears. But I think the bearing cradles were not tight enough around the bearing.I took it all apart and salvaged the gears. They don't look to bad .I put them in other gearboxes.I'm thinking my next move.
