Dana 18 binding on t90 trans

I am trying to reinstall my Dana 18 on to the original t90 on my m38. The main shaft on the trans spins free and smooth until I bolt the tcase on. It feels like the rear bearing in whats binding up. Am I missing a step or is it supposed to be tight? Thanks for any help.

Is the transfer actually pushing the barring ahead more when you put it on???

Everything spins fine until I snug down the tcase mounting bolts. When everything is tightened down, I can spin the shaft by putting a ratchet on the output shaft nut, but not by hand.

I would check to see if you dropped a needle bearing out of the input shaft when you assembled the transmission..
test this by taking off the input bearing retainer, tighten the transfercase and see if the front bearing pops out a little..

I agree will CRO or there might not be enough play between your shim and the barring causing it to bind

Thanks for the advice. I pulled the shaft only to find a synchro pawl had found its way into the input shaft causing it to bind up. She spins free now. Can't wait to get this thing running. Its been 6 long years since its been driven.
