Gearbox Possible Issue
A while back, I was having some issues with my LSD gearbox, wouldnt accelerate smoothly was very noisey and quite clunky.

I swapped it out for another box for the time being so I took the time to crack open the LSD one and have a nosey inside see if I could see anything that could have been causing the issues.

all the bearings were smooth minimal play in them, there was only a slight mark on two of the teeth on first gear

but I did find these little bits

hiding underneath the shifter mechanism sat right in the bottom of the box, bottom right of this picture, they had all collected there.

does this mean bad times? or are they bits from the reverse gear as it did look quite worn....

Worn gears would not produce broken parts. There would have to be broken teeth to make those pieces. Those look like steel. Look carefully at every part. If there is curvature to them, look at anything round, like the shifting forks and baulk rings.

I went round every gear a tooth at a time and only found what I mentioned.... pretty stumped

Any chances that transmission was rebuilt? Was there RTV gunk used to seal the case that you may have seen when you cracked it open?

only the stock looking old grey stuff, I wouldnt have said it had ever been opened.....

what you thinking?

Just a small possibility that it could have been left-over debris from previous transmission work.

mmm, they are all rounded bits, maybe something loose in the transmission that got chewed up but then there should be evidence/damage of that happening...

quite big pieces too, compared to whats normally on the drain plug
