I was wondering if the pinion was the same gear. Hadn't seen the innards of one of these rears!

In order for both ring gears to work with the same pinion gear, the thinner toothed gear has to be cut deeper. Can you check and see if there is a depth difference.
Yes I can check it- I was going to see if I could measure amy difference in the pinion gear as well- I have never found a stamped model number on any of the pinion gears-

after a year of having parts for my d4-10 lay on the shelf I have finally gotten a chance to start the assembly process and a few issues have come up. the biggest issue is while trying to reassemble the transaxle. I assembled the front end and ensured everything spins and shifts gears smoothly and correctly, but when I install the ring gear and axel shafts everything seizes up and won't rotate. I have tried installing the ring gear and pinion from both sides. What am I missing? Thanks,

I have had some what of the same issue on one I was rebuilding. I have not figured out the solution at this point. What is the model number on your ring gear? Is it original or a replacement? I am thinking it has to do with the shimming of the pinion gear, but not 100% sure. I contacted a guy who had worked on them years ago and he said he never had to break them down to the point of a total rebuild so he could not help. Bummer, was hoping he was going to give me the secret to this issue. The one I rebuilt will spin freely as long as you don't push the tires in the same direction, as soon as the tires are pushed in the same direction it locks up. Hope someone else may have the solution.

Wish I could help, but I've never had this kind of problem on any type of final drive.
