Here is the clutch coupler installed on top of the side gear. In a real installation, there would be 2 pins and 2 spring packs in the coupler.

Here is the inside of the carrier with the bottom side gear and thick thrust washer installed. On top off the side gear is the original thrust washer. I used this in place of the spacer that came with the Locker kit. What's needed here is to be able to lay the pinion block on top of the side gear an...

This is a comparison of the stock thrust washer (on the left) to the much thicker new washer (on the right) that I had to use to get the clearances I wanted. This new washer came from Ace hardware. It was a "hardened thick metric washer" size M24, 10.9 hardness. $1.19 ea. It's about 5/32 inch thick....

Here is where I had to remove some metal at the top of the carrier opening. Prolly removed 1/8 to 1/4 inch all around. Took about 20 minutes with a die grinder. One concern about this is that there is a ridge on the carrier cap that fits into this opening and centers the cap. This doesn't work after...

OK, here goes.

For those that have never seen a Lockright locker, here's a pic shamelessly stolen from Lockright's web site.
Not shown are the 4 pins and 8 small springs that go between the two clutch couplers.

Makes sense to me, but then I've installed a couple of Lockrights before, and played with the LJ20 carrier/LJ80 locker last summer. I think the only way to understand it fully is to actually take a carrier apart and look at the pieces. I remember being concerned about the side gears being too small...

I'll be wanting some pictures.... I'm still trying to figure out how the locker fits into the carrier and how it works. Could you add material to the face of the side gear? Or am I missing some important point... Give us a peek. Russ Yeah. I dunno how much pics will help. I hadda have alla the part...

Got the gears from Russ tonight. Tried 'em in the diff. Clearances are all wrong. I think I may be able to shim the side gears enough to work, but it's gonna be iffy. The problem is that the locker couplers cam off of the spider shafts to lock and unlock. The clearances have to be set so that when t...

How much of this do you need/want?
Just the two little side gears and their shims.

Now all I need is a good set of side gears so's I can put it together and check alla the clearances and test it. Anybody got a good set of side gears? ...

Jimny, did that busted front axle in yer shop go with the two LJ's I bought from you?

As soon as you figgure out that the answer is "yes", then you can figgure out how and when I kin pick it up to work on this locker thing.

I'll be in Joplin week after next from the 20th to the 23rd.

"Kid" means someone under 18, otherwise it'd be more like 4 adults and 27 kids.
I'm kinda curious which 4 you's classify as the adults?
REAL curious!

Wanna 'splain that, huh? huh?
