Guessing was a good word. IF the transmission is actually in neutral, then it would not matter, even if the drive shaft were welded to the housing, the transmission input shaft & clutch would still be free to spin.

You know, i just thought of something and you may have the answer. If the trans is locked up for what ever reason, could that also lock the differential into position giving the illusion that it was locked up too??
I mean, if the output shaft fron the trans to the drive shaft was locked would that not also keep the differential from turning?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeyes & yes. Also on your "half turn" question, due to the fact that the ratio between meshing gears may be as much as 11:1 (low) or as little as 3:1 (4th gear), then it is clear that with a piece of tooth wedged in a particular gear, then 1/11th fwd to 1/11th back would see lock to lock. Similarly for 1/3 fwd & 1/3rd back.

Good point and i did not think of that. It would have to be one of the small gears at the bottom of trans that i can"t see without taking it apart so guess that is next move.
I will post what i found.

Another thought: sounds like you bought it in this locked up condition. If so, then it could be that one or more of those gears that should be free to rotate on its shaft is not free (rust/corrosion/etc.). Roughly half of total gear count is free to rotate relative to shaft they ride on & the other half are fixed to & always rotate with shaft. Couplers all rotate with shaft they ride upon. Are you sure all 3 couplers are disengaged, i.e., in non-coupling neutral positions?
