Cleaning the LSD

February 28, 2009

So, yeah… I didn’t press in the side bearings on the lsd completely. They pressed in by themselves, with the diff in the car, the lsd was moving side-to-side inside the 3rd member (it had about .01″ backlash. factory spec is .007″).  To make the story short, I had a fuck load metal shavings all over everything from the ring and pinion gear (the gear oil looked like metallic paint with sparkles). Here are some pictures of the “clean up”.


clutch plates, press. ring, and gears are out of the diff case.
