Yes so my question is this:
Lets assume that the front left wheel is spinning and the front right is not and we engage the diff lock (yes i know you should stop then engage but for explination sake i engage when spinning.
When diff lock is engaged, Carrier is rotating say 1rpm, then spins the friction plates 1rpm, which when locked spins the steels turning them 1 rpm, which then spins the cage 1rpm, which then in turn slows the left axle shaft,which is spinning 2rpm through the spider gears, to 1 rpm in turn forcing the left side side gear to slow back to 1rpm, from 2rpm, in turn sending power back through the spider gears back to the right side gear spinning the right axle. Lol long story.
Assuming this is all true, could my problem be the gear on the axle shaft either be spinning on the shaft or not actually be engaged into the clutch basket cage? Becase that gear that is on my left axle shaft just slides on its not pressed on or anything. Am i even remotly close to correct?
