Since I posted about the S2000′s differential issues, I figured I would post an update on the situation…. And yeah, I do have other photos I should work on sharing. Sigh. But for now, my issues lol.
After finding the tiny bits, the differential was removed and cracked open…. And, well, good & bad news.
The good: the Torsen diff itself & housing are both okay.
The bad: The pinion gear sheared itself to bits…. Ooops. The ring gear is okay, too, though. But the gears needed to be replaced, plus the bearings.
Currently, the entire assembly is en route to Puddy Mod Racing, down in Florida, to get some upgraded parts & get reassembled. Hooray for that! The gearing is going to now be 4.44, so when she’s all done there will be a bit of relearning with her….
However, she’s not entirely breaking the bank AND it is a partial upgrade, so that’s nice. The hardest part is being without her for so long. Hopefully she’ll be home soon, and a bit better than before.
Car life is never dull, now is it?
