Default Kawada Spur Gears

Hi,

Can someone please help me out by telling me the deal with the Kawada Spur gears? These are the ones in specifically referring to.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Kawada-S48-73...item20b2968b52

My questions are the follolwing:
1) What size diff balls are these supposed to use? Some people tell me 1/8 some say 3mm. I have both, and both seem to fall out.
2) On the topic of diff balls falling out, apparently the diff ball holes are kind of one way, so the balls are supposed to fall out one way, and stay in the other way.

If anyone can shed light on this matter for me it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!!

Mus

Looking at my one, it should go in the side where there's no kawada name on it.

Cheers mate, so they are supposed to fall out from one side, and not the other? Also, what size diff balls do you use?

What's a fixed axle car?

I'm using it in a Tamiya F104Pro. Basically a drive shaft, with two diff plates on either side of the spur, and a nut on the end to tighten/loosen the diff.
