Rear axle noise

...with the caveat that new parts don't behave the same way as original parts when it comes to blueing.
Did a quick measurement and runout is between 3 to 5 thou. My dial guage reads in Millimeters but found a useful conversion
app online.
Will (obvoiusly) do more checks once I have the crown wheel in position  (maybe 2 weeks away if lucky).
Suspicion only but wonder if someone stuck a screwdriver into the crown wheel to help with tightening the nut on the
end of the torque tube. Suspicious but knowing the many 'bodges' found so far I would not be suprised.

Diff casing now painted and looks much better. Have fitted the new diff seals as welll. Getting the 'C' ring back in was a fight but
got there in the end.
Tomorrow more checks on and around the diff-spring fixings and maybe climb under the car and check the propshaft and couplings
up to the gearbox.
