The fork and the ring are also damaged due to the fork being loose in the diff. I am very lucky they didn't do any other damage.

But I did not think about having a stem made up... :think:

I suppose you would need the stem for measurements? It is still in the diff so that would have to come out.

Damnit guys!! I am justifying an e-locker... don't give me more reasonable alternatives!!! :lol:

Thanks for the offer Peter, I will be in namibia till end of August and then I will only be able to tear down the diff to get the stem... I am home for 2 weeks, so I will be without the troll for that time and then on break again in October...

Better to order the e-locker now, have it slipped in when I get back and then I can play with the troll sooner.

I contacted Marino and I have prices for ARB airlocker.

As a matter of interest the guys that installed my lockright were punting a generic air locked based on the ARB one. They had done a few installs but when I picked up the patrol they had changed their tune. One they installed was causing problems by randomly dis-engaging and they couldn't track the issue.

:doh:
No e-locker for the patrol with the OEM difflock. That rules out e-lockers at the back for most of the SA patrols...

Also does not seem like there is much (or anything) available for a rear h260 LSD diff.... :thumbdown:

ARB or TJM airlockers are all that's left.
