Update

I'll try posting as I go, cuz if not I will never do a clear DIY.

Useless speedo gear, used cuz was already purchased.

Tools/technique used to press bearings to LSD.
I started by holding it with my legs and hammering them to place with a rubber mallet. Go around a couple of times until it's there safe. Once that's done follow pics below and keep hitting carefully with rubber mallet. It helps to have someone hold the differential against the 2x4, btw the piping used is 2.5in ID. It was from one of my intercooler pipes back in the day.

Could you have used the old speedo gear if you had not purchased a new one?

Good luck Carlos! I'm glad to see everything is working out for you! That hole you made in your block is pretty nice by the way, haha. You guys down there in Houston keep me inspired.

you could but its useless...when we first opened up the tranny we seen that it indeed has a speedo gear and from the first look of it it kinda looked like it was shimming the bearing. Carlos told me though that it doesnt shim it as you can see from the pics so its absolutly worthless.

Thanks bro! U better make it here for the summer, that way u could get boosted in a weekend.

Here's some more:
To get out the driver side axle seal and lsd bearing race, tap out with anything that might help. The install kit comes with this seal anyways, so if you break it that would be no problem. One thing to note is, once pressing back the new seal and you get it flush with the housing, go in an extra 1/8 inch. Or better, take note of how far in the old one was.

To get the passenger side axle combo I used a sears pry bar, reason being was that there's a flimsy plastic oil blocker between the oil seal and lsd bearing race.

Old and new pass side lsd bearing races, notice the wear?

Technique used for both lsd bearing races.

the 2.5 in pipe came out very handy, make sure to make the seal flush with the housing

Finally got the LSD assembled, do follow the maintenance repair manual. It says to bake the differential gear ring to 230F for a reason. I tried installing it cool and it was kind of though. I put it in the oven at 250F for about 15 min and when I put it back together it was as loose as a hooker's... It does work, but do get it back together and tight down quick cuz it will start shrinking fast. Remember 78 ft/lb and red thread sealant.

be back tomorrow with more :-)

Be sure to use OEM toyota Red FIPG. This will retian oem look on tranny. And also will give you best seal possible!

Nice. If there is no speedo gear isint that an issue lol?
