Not sure about getting it from performance south.. I just hacked one out of a new socket....I got it to work though. You can come down to sanford and use it here if you want. Next time I go to Busco i'll let you know. We also go to Soggy Bottom in Orangeburg, SC...it's a long 4 hr drive for a Saturday ride but I've done it twice already and had a flat blast. We're getting a local hotel next time after the ride. Your welcome to tag along!
Now on to the rest of the story...
I got the kit out and during installation have run into a problem.
The small needle bearing for the input shaft is the wrong size and doesn't work at all.
The one in my diff is a Torrington BH-912.
The one in the kit has the number 898 (or 868) on it and it has a smaller outside diameter and is shorter in length.
On top of that, the main shaft output left and right sides has two different size bearings. The kit has two 6007 bearings of the same size but my differential has one 6007 and one 6207 bearing. Luckily, the seals look like they will fit ok.
Both pinion bearings rumble and I believe they have to be the source. I also noticed some minor pitting on the three of the pinion gear teeth. Gonna let her rock on till they die...
I have sent the eBay seller messages and I have also ordered the right bearings on amazon.com. Should be here within the week....
More to come...
