Seen this many times. Spider gear gets galled up on the cross shaft, spins the cross shaft, breaks pin bolt, wallows out the machined holes in the carrier. eventually shaft slides out partially, whacks the pinion gear, something has to break.
What gear ratio are you dealing with?
Have several nice shape 8.2 Pontiac carriers, both early and late style.
High ratio: 2.56 & 2.78
mid ratio:2.93,3.08, 3.23
Am heading back out, will ck in later.
