(reply from Prelude13)
that could be it, it probably is not all the way in...i cant tell you without seeing it myself...

...they sell boot removers, which carefully removes the boot or replaces it without tearing it...damn man, sorry to hear all your troubles, why dont you make a thread in the general forum?


(and the story continues...)
Here is what I found out.
I took the remanufactured shaft back to the parts store, and compaired EVERY dimension of the new one to my old shaft. One difference was found. The length of the spline shaft at the transaxel end on the "new" part is approx .25" shorter than the length of my old part. Causing the snap ring to not penetrate the diferential case by enough to lock into place. This allows the half shaft to back out of the case and therefore, not carry power to the wheels.

This has been the repair project from &%##. Between frozen bolts and parts delays. be ye for warned fellow lude-a-tics.

Agreed, make sure to check EVERY dimension. Don't just eyeball it.

YeaHooooo!!!. A local shop had a couple of remanufactured shafts just setting around waiting for a home. I'm back on the road.
