I've  never had any diff turn that hard. I don't know what's wrong, but
it sure  don't sound right.

Any other technical answers??
Getting all the  information is most of the solution.

I've got my  differential out for repairs ('65 manual), and I'm wondering

about  something.  How much resistance should there be when turning the
in opposite directions?  I can't do it by hand, but I can put one  yoke
in a 
vise and turn the other one using a breaker bar.  This  still takes quite
bit of effort, maybe 20 ft. lbs.  Enquiring  minds need to know before 
putting the differential back together!  I  have never driven this car,
so I 
don't know what it was like on the  road.
