    help,911

    i have a post on here about my truck not moving.ive taken it apart,front and rear gear box.i cant seem to find anything wrong with it.
    this is what i see when i have it running.when the truck is on the ground the clutch housing is moving,and the big diff gear is moving.both the front and rear drive shafts arent moving.when i hold it up in the air everything moves like it should.its just when its on the ground it wont move.would this mean that something in the diffirential gear box is not working right?please help....

    replace the gear box, etiher something is stripped or the plates inside are shot, not worth taking apart and fixing easier to replace.

    even when you give it a lot of throttle it doesnt move?caues if it moves when you pick it up...then the differential is working.

    RE: help,911

    yep i can give it full throttle and no movement.i did however find that one of the gears on the diff box has melted from around the nut.so im guessing thats the problem.so im also guessing that there is no stress on that gear when its in the air.so then when its on the ground its too much force causing it to just slip around the nut and not turning everything like it should.

    i didnt mean to change the front or rear ends, i meant its easier to change the "transmission" gears then to try to repair. they sell for around $17 or so.
