Hi there Guys & Gals, a new member here and as is typical I have joined as I am looking for information (please dont stone me)

I have a Shelby Cobra replica and it uses a complete AU rear end setup, sadly a few weeks ago I was racing at Wakefield in Goulburn NSW and I have blown the LSD in my diff, it is now a single spinner and thus not that easy to get traction of the line.

I am looking for a detailed how to regarding dismatleing and rebuiding the diff, should only be the LSD part I need to dismantle, but a complete instruction would be great.

Is there a location where I may find this info?
I am a qualified tech and built the car from scratch, so pretty confident that if I have instructions, I can rebuild it.

I also realise that like most forums, you lot probably like to see pics, so here are some.

Thanks in advance for any info.

David.

Nice job on the Cobra.
I've been helping a bloke build a Cobra too....5.4 V8 and 5sp. Has a Jag rear ( single legger ) and a Torana front end.
I rebuilt an AU XR8 IRS diff a few years ago....used some genuine parts, and some after market parts.
I didn't however rebuild the centre as there was nothing wrong with that part, just that the pinion bearings had just started to make a noise.
I made a tool for the side carrier bearing retainers, so as to adjust them.
