Rear LSD for gen I LWB

Rear LSD for gen I LWB - 01/13/15 05:43 PM

Looking to get an LSD rear carrier assembly for 1990 LWB Montero. I know I have 4.625 gears and would like to match them. Mi_Mitsu has a rear carrier assembly from a LWB but is unsure the ratio. Told him the only way I know would be to count ring and pinion teeth and divide ring count by pinion count. Don't know if the lwb only came with certain gears? Would ratio be different based on it being auto or manual trans? Just my thoughts, any other ways to tell. Would be good to know for future search.

On another similar subject I could not get my axle shafts out when I tried the other day. Was not using the ideal tools to do it, may have been most of my problem. I removed the nuts that hold the shaft to the housing. I only have a 3lb slide hammer and had to use a piece of angle iron with holes drilled in it to attach to the hub. It never budged. Should I just get a bigger slide hammer and proper hub tool or did I maybe miss something?

Good to see you keep on going on the LWB Monty and not give up ... 'I' 'Me' have never come across a LWB GEN1 with any other then 462 gear .. You do know about the "cal tag" ..right..? ...

You do have all the four nuts off on the inside at the brake backing plate,,? ... Try it white tra$h style <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cyclops.gif" alt="" />... Big log chain ... Hooked to lug stud.. Give the chain a big whip as in 'cracking a bull whip' ...Beware... If you do this 'right' the axle will come flying out of the housing ... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />... Sorry ...

Thanks for the support <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />
By "cal tag" do you mean the plate under the hood or sticker on the door jam or something like that?

If they don't happen to be the same gears would the ring and pinion from my open diff bolt up?
There doesn't seem to be any problems with the rear now just would rather have the LSD. Changed the pinion seal over the weekend and wanted to put new sealant on the 3rd member too is why I was pulling axle shafts..

Yeah, I did take the nuts off the backing plate. Probably was never apart before and my little slide hammer wasn't cutting it. Tried heating where the nuts came off from with propane torch some too, still didn't budge.
The big chain sounds like a good idea I'll have to try that next time.

Cal tag as in alum tag on firewall or coresuppot....

All gen1 V6 ( we know of..) swb and lwb have the same rear diff and 462's..4cyl have a smaller rear end ...Grease your rear wheel bearings too...

Loose nuts and a drive around the block maybe... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cyclops.gif" alt="" />...

The guy with the rear just has that so no tag for id. Junk yards I've called said they only had 4.62s listed as well.

Thought about using the chain method but hooking the other end to my neighbors bumper before they go out. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
