Well, today I discovered why the half shaft came apart. My differential mount is broken! One of the “ears” broke in two. That allowed enough play between the hub and the diff to allow the tripod to pop out of the socket. I’m not so bad off, since the mount is separate from the diff and joined to it by 4 nuts, I believe the NA/NB had an integral mount on the diff housing. I may have to drop the diff to do it. Trying to figure a way to get a new mount in there without taking too much apart… oy vey!!
