xrayaustin - You might want to try Green slim as it seems to help.

Go to an auto parts store and buy some gasket sealer that stays flexible...
Put a dab between your thumb and index finger and tap all the way around the gasket. Then install the gasket, fill, and assemble the diff.

I highly recommend using Associated Green Slime (or similar) on not only the stamped, paper gasket, but also on the o-rings inside the gear diff housing. If your gear diff continues to leak, you'll simply need to replace the paper gasket and the o-rings (Spec-R made a running change to a 'double' o-ring), apply the Green Slime, and your problem will be solved. I've done the above and had a dramatic decrease in leaking. Good luck.

I want to get one for my tb03. the stock diff drives me mad, it has soft cap screws, crap thrust bearings, crap balls and the diff halves are destroyed.
Does it come with shims for each bearing so it meshes perfectly?

So do you think I should get it?

I stripped a screw head, and all I had to replace it was extra Mi4 spur gear screws. It tightened down just fine, and that diff hasn't leaked a drop.

They were there before (at least on 10th May when I ordered mine) You most likely just missed it.

Hrm. I just disassembled one of the diffs I got from Schumacher, and the screws were a slightly loose 1.5. The 1/16 didn't seat fully and slipped. The spare screws I got from hks linked above were also 1.5. I need to double-check the diffs I got from hks now.

You defintely need to be patient and careful the first time you put the screws in, though, because they're a very tight fit while they cut threads. I'd suggest screwing them in once before assembly so it's a bit easier.

Default Diff are no as good as they could be

Hi All

Has anyone had the slot in the side gear were the pin sits flog out, running mod there is too much torque going through the diff, the gears need to be made out of a stronger material.
Has anyone tried any steel gears to see if they fit in the diff housing, from a gas car or the new Serpent gear diff ?.

Regards
Gary
