Ok heres the deal.
Recently put in a EL XR6 3.45 'LSD'
It says all over the diff thats its an LSD.
But it does this:
-Tailshaft off - wheels same direction
-Tailshaft on - wheels opposite direction
-Lock one wheel - other wheel spins easily
I understand that with an LSD the wheels should spin the same direction when you spin them. But this diff does both - same and opposite directions in the above different circumstances.
Im pretty sure its an LSD, but could there be something wrong with it -if so what, would this be normal, have i been sold a dudd?
Definately doesnt sound like it's an LSD. If you're sure it is, there's an internal problem. I wouldnt try to DIY it unless you have at least some experience working on diffs, but go for it if you think you can do it.
Find out it it's a 3.45 diff first. The only non LSD from that ratio is the AUII/AUIII XR6 HP diffs. If you can mark the tailshaft and count the turns of rotation of it in relation to the wheels you will find out your ratio. If it isnt a 3.45 diff then youve been jibbed. If it is then it could be the cones in the diff that are rooted.
