Hmmm indeed,

If it's one of the later models maybe a broken ring gear/planetary housing or if your real lucky both :hammerbash:

Onya Bob - cheer me up why don't you? That glass of black is lookin' better by the minute.

The good news is I've found an axle - $220+ freight.

Well, the bit is out, wasn't too bad in the end and looks like all the damage has been confined to the outer axle.  :NotWorthy:

Last one is a good shot that shows the heat treatment of the part leaving a soft core

My aim is for a accurate part with a good finish

tel,

I'm glad for you that the damage was confined to the short axle and no deeper into the diff. I must admit I had visions of bigger and more involved problems.

Best Regards
Bob
