A roller bearing doesn't break in. The seal and grease may make it stuff until you drive it but that shouldn't take a trip around the block to do. Did everything bolt up easy without pressure to align the bolt holes? You got a spool or a posi unit? Maybe the housing is bent?

I checked it again today, it freed up alot. But now when i try to spin the wheel(car is in neutral and the rearend iis off the ground) it still drags in some spots, others it moves almost effertlessly, but if i try and spin the other way then its back to having drag. Could it be my drum brakes? Either way its alot better than before. Thanks, Brian

Its a Moroso brute posi

It could be the brakes. If it worries you back off the adjuster. You can readjust if that frees it up.

If the rear end gets tighter in certain spots the brake drums could be out of round. The ring gear could have a not been pulled down tight against the carrier. That will cause the the tooth contact to get tighter and cause some drag also.
