    Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think has gone on here. I can't see any damage to the LSD.

    There are particles here on a paper towel, some look like teeth shavings, there is a small spring, a small ball bearing, and what appear to be many broken small pins. There is also no evidence of how the thumb sized hole got in the trans either.

    Is there any way to bench test the LSD? Should the internals spin or anything? I'd like to make sure before I reinstall it in the next transmission.

    Your tranny is shot but your diff is probably ok.

    I'm installing the diff in another transmission tomorrow. Should be back on the road again in just a day or two.

    BTW: you guys are lucky, NO ONE up here sells a trans for this car for any kind of deal. $400 and up. I buy whole cars for that sometimes LOL.

    I would check craigslist. A few months back I saw a 420a and tranny for $150. I finally needed it a month ago, so I found the ad and called him up. just my luck, he sold it the day before. :banghead:

    Why dont you tear down the LSD and look at the gears?

    Also
    Why are you looking for a 4g63?

    LSD still has warranty coverage, but found the chewed up gear inside the transmission so I'm not going to mess with the Quaife, just pop it in the next trans.

    And about buying on craigslist, it depends on where you are. A person selling a trans for $70 from California doesn't do me much good if shipping is $200 plus, see my point?
