You're going to have to get the threads started true before you use any tools. I use a prybar that fits between the tits perfectly...I just tighten them as much as I can by hand.

i guess im gonna go through the 4 bearing caps and see which ones fit what side of what center..i think the miss matching of parts may be part of the problem......thanks cj

The flathead prybar is the tool of choice. If you can't get the adjusters to stop cross threading you most likely have miss matched caps. Try setting the adjuster into the journal with the cap off, set the cap on loose, inset the bolts just enough to hold them in place, raise and drop the cap into place. If it does not go all the way down , you are cross threaded or missmatched. When you are moving the adjusters, loosen the caps and then run them back in till they just touch the cap, make your adjustment, retighten the bolts, check your pattern, repeat as necessary, install locks. If you can wiretie those ring gear bolts it would be a good idea, the holes in the bolts are there for a reason.

Where did you find the torque spec's for that axle?
I would be interested in seeing the rest of them.
I torqued the bearing retainers with a hammer and a screwdriver to exactly 175 lbs :flipoff2:

how many caps do you have to choose from? that is your problem.you should be able to set adjusters in case snug to the bearing. if you have the right cap for the right side, then start the main cap bolts, push cap down by hand until it seats. it should sit flatt without tapping it flatt with any tools.after that is figured out you should be able to take it apart and measure the carrier bearing bore for both sides and it should be the same on both sides.hope this helps
