Sounds like there were no shims between the diff bearings and the diff???

If so, it's no wonder that the R&P went.

Almost. The ring gear bolts were against the cover before any bearing clearence came into play. I think the other builder thought the diff was tight and just removed untill it turned on the bench and let it go.
