    Summit problem

    Hi everyone! I recently did some work on my summit. I shimmed the diffs, locked the back diffs, blue tacked the front diffs, got new tires, and ordered a new spur gear. When I went to roll my summit, te back wheels lock up after a few inches of rolling it, forward or backward. The front wheels spin fine. Is it because I completely locked the back diffs with the locker insert? Thanks for replies

    Sounds like something is not assembled quite right.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    i would check the set screw on the drive shafts some times if they are not all the way in they will not let the wheels turn the same thing had happened to me and that was the problem.
