Default Help with Kawahara Negative diff

Hi all

I am halfway thru building a negative diff. And I can't work out where the red o ring goes.

Can any body help.

Thanks in advance.

you should have 2 red o rings.
put the first one in right before the gears .
o ring - shim- pin-now gears.
now gasket-gear-pin-shim

it only came with one oring.

I used the standars one's in the spots where you said.

Not sure what they are used for but I noticed sirakarn had one in his car when he was here a few months back.

Negative Diff:

On power, it locks up like a solid axle.
Off power, it is a diff.

The O-rings are intended to stop the diff oil escaping from the diff. It can seep along the output shafts and onto the clutch shoes.
Here's a pic of the V-One version, but I expect the principal should be the same.

Thats OK.

sorry for this, but I couldn't stop thinking and LOL that this might be how my wife thinks of it, " It feels tight, like its too big."

sorry, sorry...

As long as your wife doesn't lock up on exit, it's all good.
