I didn't imagine it was so hard to install it. I havent received it yet. The instructions I have are those:

...and I have the engine and torque tube in the car as you can see here:



...so I will see how I can tighten it up (with help from inside the car).

Hello Landseer....I wonder if you can help me.....my car hasn't got the LSD but I have now found a used gearbox with LSD (my old gearbox is kaput, it's a long story).

1. Can I just plug and play the LSD gearbox into my non-LSD car?

2. You mentioned "LSD units are modular and can be swapped in and out." Can I just then remove the LSD parts in the gearbox if I do not wish to have the LSD fitted to my car?

Thanks a million!

Yes and yes.

No idea why you wouldn't want it in, but it's not too hard to take it out.

Depends on the year of the car and the year of the transaxle if it is plug and play. Same with the slip there are two dimensionally different units.

Thank you Joe. Not that I do not want the LSD but rather I'm thinking it could be dangerous for me should the LSD-gearbox does not work well with my non-LSD-transaxle? Perhaps the rear tyres would unnecessarily lock or give way at certain speeds when cornering.

Thank you James..

My car is an 81. The LSD-gearbox is an 82. Do you think they can work with each other?

Not sure what you are worried about. It's a clutched unit. It slips some when needed, but puts torque to both wheels no matter what. It can't lock up.

As noted, there were different units. If you are doing a direct swap (same year & model of trans) they should bolt right up.

Different years may be a different story.
