T-Case output flange question
I just finished installing the front and rear transfer case flanges on my 1987 D-90 and both seals and flanges went on without a hitch. However, in the front, after installing, it is now very difficult to spin the flange. Prior to installing, the flange would freely rotate with very minimal effort, now, I have to use the butt end of a hammer to rotate the flange. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?
The rear is a little more tight than the old flange, but I can still rotate it with my hand (driveshafts are removed, btw).
Please let me know as I do not want to drive it if it is something that could potentially be wrong.
