    check your grub screws on the drive cups. Where the dog bones go in. They might have loosened up or even fell out.
    Does it roll freely when the motor is not running? How is the spur gear?

    Another thing you could check is see if any dogbones have come out on one side, usually the ones going from the diff to wheels. I have had them come out on me and it will bind up and not let it roll.

    Check the owb that is in your tranny on the big gear and make sure that it works.

    use your finger and move the gear itself


    also when you roll it watch what parts move as in the clutch bell should turn tranny and tranny should turn drice lines to the front and rear diff then front and rear diffs should turn dogbones the the wheels check all these spots as it is most likely something simple

    if it spins the clutch bell when he pushes it backwards, the owb is good, if it wasnt, the clutch bell wouldnt spin at all

    look at the teeth. If they are rounded over they are shot lol.. also roll your car on the ground and watch to see that the spur is touching the clutchbell while spinning.
