    And half of the options he lists are out of stock, might be time to figure out a new rear end swap option.

        I assume all those used diffs are just coming out of junk yards, likely not getting shipped in from overseas.

          I just bought one of his diffs. He said he just needs to source more that aren’t crazy high mileage.

            I bet those Nissan differentials have more mileage on them within their first 4 years than a TR6 differential has in 40 years

              I would recommend all the diffs, no matter the source, be freshened with new clutches and seals. Not sure how much the ring and pinion can wear even with high mileage as long as they weren't run dry. I have a R200 in the car now that I know had very high unknown amount of mileage when purchased 14 years ago but i just installed it. I have another now that I will freshen before I install it.

                I am contemplating freshening up my spare R200 with new carbon fiber clutches before changing it out with the one presently installed pumpkin, a high mileage unit. But I searched for a clutch kit and ran across pictures of the innards of the R200. Link Below:

                What this shows is that if I am to do this, unlike videos I have seen where removing the carrier is not necessary to change out the clutches, I will have to remove the carrier and ring gear from the case and take it apart to extract and change the clutches. I am looking at the carbon fiber clutches pack as replacement. I think that removing the carrier in this case which the ring gear is mounted to and the clutches are encased in, changing out the clutches with new and reassembling the carrier and ring should be simple. The process will not relieve the pinion of any preload or alter the backlash so if I position the carrier shims as removed, it all should go back together as it was. I am going to give this a serious look see.
