Are you wanting to fit the centre into what you have ???
Assuming this is for an XH ute, just use an XH XR6 diff wholus-bowlus, just bolt it in.

straight forward enough, undo handbrake cable, undo tailshaft, take off the watts linkage, undo the calipers and leave them hanging, that way you dont need to bleed the brakes, undo the trailing arms and shocks and diff should roll out. i did mine on a hoist to make s**t easier.
