UFO?

Yep.

 

I still have a pair of Snap-On pliers that he gave me as a gift. I use them every day. Good guy.

As far as grinding the housing to get the LSD to fit, it's a very small amount of grinding that's required. Just the two nubs on the inside of the housing.

It’s interesting this topic comes up while I’m working on swapping a CLSD carrier to a 4.44 housing.

The ring gear of the 4.44 is a bit taller/thicker than the 3.7, maybe because of the gear count difference? Trying to assemble it, the ring gear hits the housing on the one side, so the carrier can’t slide in. The two nubs for the recess of the side cover bolts is what needs to be ground (left side of the case looking in the housing), maybe 2mm, for the carrier to slide in. I measured the depth of the bolt hole before grinding to make sure I wouldn’t breach the bolt hole.

I actually switched out my 3.70 gears to 3.54. My friend just did it and dropped about 500 RPM on the highway with the VG. A V6 should not be buzzing like a 4 cylinder.

The R160 LSD can handle Frank driving a turbo KA.  Enough said.
