Help, installing lock rite locker

I got everything in and go to slide pinion shaft in and it hits the spacers. Anyone else had this problem or know what I'm doing wrong?

Are the spacers in backwards?

The spacers that go over the c clips? The hollow side goes over the c clip. When you got the c clips in did you pull the shafts out tight against the outer teeth on the locker?

It's on the front dana 30, and I suspect I have them in backwards. One end of the spacers are kind of cupped and I put the cupped side towards the teeth on the locker

They are the spacers that are on either side of the pinion shaft once the locker is assembled.

You can see the spacers in the pinion hole and that's as far out of the way as they'll go. I'm going to try turning them around tomorrow as I think I misinterpreted the instructions

Are you sure that spacers are supposed to be in a Dana 30? It does not have c clips.

Do the spacers have slots in them for the cross pin? That's not the pinion shaft that's what was confusing me. My Aussie did not have any spacers like that in it. Did they come with the locker?

Ya they came with it, they are what the shaft pushes up against while turning and disengages one wheel or the other.

I understand how the locker works, but my aussie has nothing like that. The springs and pins work the locking/unlocking mechanism. Again, do the spacers have a slot in them that you could rotate them to make things line up. The cross pin obviously isn't going to go through with them in the way. Either the spacers rotate or they should go in further.


EDIT: When you assembled the side gears did you let the spacer push back into the side gear/coupler as well or only the driver gear? I think I remember them now in my aussie and they went through both gears. Yours might be hanging up and not sliding back into the side gear hole.

No slots, but the hole on one side of the spacer is about twice as big as the opposite side. I retread the directions and it says put wider side towards the teeth and that's not how I have them

the "spacers" are like a cup with a hollow side and a flat side. The flat side goes towards the Crosspin (not pinion shaft)


I would be installing that lockright in the trash anyways. Mine is broken, well half welded half lockright, and i know 3 other broken ones as well.
