Default '92 left axle help

Hello guys,
I need some serious help please, please!!!! I started mom and dad'* bonneville se left axle replacement using the info from you folks and the tech forum here. removal went well, got the inner part to snap out of the transmission and all looked good. Started install and new axle was going on kinda hard. I have not worked much on GM prods so i didn't think too much of it, until I got it to where the nose of the axle is just about to the seal on the transmission and it won't go any further at all AND it won't come back off either, it is stuck good!!!! I probably hit it a bit harder than i should have, thinking it was just being difficult. now i need to know first how in blazes am i going to get the thing to come back off and then what do you think i have wrecked or destroyed at this point? I don't know what happened but i guess the lock ring must be giving me flack, can i get new lock rings? Do you think i got the splines goofed up? what do you guys think? has this ever happened to anyone else and how and what did you have to do to correct it?

I really appreciate all your help so far, you guys are great!!!
please help me out here if you can.
thanks much
Micheal

When installing a new axle it'* easy enough to get an odd angle and bind up.

You probably got that situation...maybe the splines are off a little. Nothing we can really do to help you unless you are local and someone cruises over.

Both axles looked the same when you compared them side by side right.

Look it over, determine what happened and get it lined up and in there. You'll get it.

Default thanks billboost37

Hey,
thanks for the encouragement. I was just hoping that there is nothing that would get damaged easiliy. I will give it a look and see if i can't get it tapped back out and make sure it goes in straight. There isn't a lot of room in there to get a good wack to straighten that end out. I should be able to get it though.
thanks much.
I will let you know what i find.
thansk very very much.

The axles and splines of the trans are both hardened and I doublt you hurt them. I think it'* a simple bad angle bind up.

If you want to spend some time taking pictures and whatnot..then we could come up with more, however by that time..you'll have it fixed up and be busy driving.

Default finally!!!!!

Thanks BillBoost37,
I finally got that 'new' shaft off my transaxle!!! It was stuck good! I disasembled the inner joint, put a powerpull behind the piece, knocked the center cap out of the spline-way and put the torch inside it to heat it. got it fairly warm and used a brass drift to tap the output shaft while i had pressure on the cup. It finally popped off! Snap ring is still ok, output splines still look good, but splines in cup must be messed up a bit. I used the old cup and it slipped right on the shaft no problem, so my rebuilt piece must have had an issue. Advance will take it back and is getting me a different one right now. should have it back together tomorrow nite!
thanks guys.
