    Broken diff update :(

    I have the car dismantled and the offending part identified, it's called a "side gear ring" and transmits drive to the diff casing via 4 dogs (one of which broke off) as the LSD clutch plates get compressed. Now I'm chasing every possible source of a replacement, in the hope that I can get the car to Adelaide next week. Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login

    Yep, I'm watching the TNT tracking site like a hawk! Last night I replaced the bearings and seals in the diff casing sideplates and helicoiled a stripped stud hole - all the maintenance jobs done, so Saturday will just be a big assembly day.
