I am a hair away from getting the back end of my '56 back on the ground. I have the axle's inserted but they appear to be 1/8" away from being fully inserted. Attached are pics showing the gap - they're not super clear but you can see the gasket isn't flat. Any thoughts on the problem? I had a shop press new bearings on - are they not pressed on far enough? Just curious if there's a common mistake made here. The diff has been rebuilt, new bearings, greased the bearings on the outside (so they'll slide in). Using a piece of 2x4 wood and hammer to press them in. I've tightened the 4 bolts at each side, but it just won't creep in any more. Ug. Thanks for any insight!
