The Moto gear diff uses no shims inside or outside. Some off road diffs use shims inside (behind the large bevel gears and/or behind the small bevel gears) and nearly all require shims on the outside to get the gear mesh between the ring and pinion just right. Since the P8C is belt drive, no need for the outer shims. I think as long as there is oil in the diff and the screws holding it together are tight, it will be very rare for the Moto diff to fail. Farmer- how do the internal gears look in that diff?
