I had originally posted that I had a noise in my 65 fastback's differential area. I had pulled drive shaft to check u-joints and they were good.I had convinced myself that the rear was going bad. This morning I started taking apart and after removing the right rear brake drum I found the brake adjuster loose and flopping around. This was the source of noise I heard. I also never had a warranty tag on my door to ID the rear, although by counting revolutions I knew I had a 3.00:1 ratio.I had never found the tag(never really looked that good)untill today. Amazing discovery, tag reads WDJ-C which according to my book is a locking differential, right. I never really checked and I have had this car for 12 years.This also explains some of the noise I hear when I make sharp turns in parking lot at slow speeds. According to book the clutches disengage to keep wheels at same turn speed. How rare is the 3.00-1 locker rear end did a lot of these get put in? I have seen 3.25 or 3.50 but not a 3.00. Thanks for all the advice and input to help me on this problem
