Danna 44?

For those of you 4X4 guys, my front end quit pulling, and when I started tacking it apart, I noticed that it was low on gear oil, and I remeber when I started building it, the front end would not pull, and it was low on gear oil then, it is an opon diff, The passenger side seal leaks and I did not even think about checking it, is it a possibility that it could be that any help would be apprestiated

i don't think that would contribute.the open diff has no clutches so shouldn't be effected by the oil.i would think you broke an axle or broke the spider gears. a friend of mine just broke his,with similar symptoms as yours.we thought it was a lockout initially and on tear down it was the spider gears.open diff like yours,except we play in the sand.

I just put an extra side washer on both sides and it still open but makes it pull a little better like a tracloc (actually probably stronger then a tracloc LOL)
