1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 - Rear End Issue
Hello all, I am rebuilding my 8.5 inch rear end on my 1967 Chevelle and I have encountered an issue. Whist finishing the rear end, I decided to change the rear axle bearings. Even with the "correct" axle bearings I am experiencing a lot of end play as shown in the video attached by the link. I have no way of adjusting for this and was not sure if anyone else has encountered this. I am the 2nd owner, but I am not sure if the orginial owner had someone mess with the rear end. I bought the car with only 40,000 miles on it 20 years ago, but never drove it much.
If anyone can help me or has any insight on this please let me know. I've been trying to sort this out for about two weeks now.
Any information helps!
The numbers on the axle are 399.
