Welded Dif, What the hell!!!

Alright, after reading a ton of threads on welding up gears for extra traction, i went ahead and welded mine up.


I put the third back in and went to pull out of my garage, and I just roasted my clutch. I figured that maybe there was some slag left in the bearing, so i dropped it in 4lo and lo and behold something broke loose.
MY FUCKING DRIVE LINE.

I'm really pissed at all this BS talk. I welded my junk really wel. And now my driveline is twisted up like a damn pretzel.

You are all a bunch of shit talkin Jerks.

What the hell did you all do differently?

Yea dude, make sure you use a better clutch and make sure you are in 4 low. Definately a bad clutch, might want to go over the welds some more, looks like there are a few missed spots.

Maybe you need triple 4.7 t-cases to turn those gears.

Nah, not needed to weld the pinion bearing. I agree with Yozsi though, should go over the welds again for strength.

welds look good, i would just go over them once more. the problem seems to be your clutch, i would get it replaced with something heavier.

Don't listen to those guy's, you welded it backwards, try down hill welding instead.
