I was tough to get it going, but once i did it popped free.

A great idea the instructions for the limited slip gave me was to put the driver side tire on the axle and dif unit. Stand the hole thing up on the left tire. Once you get it split apart the gears and all will be sitting in there. If you do it the other way the gear sets will dump out.

1. get a thin small screwdriver...
2. place it on a seam and tap with ever more firm hammer taps.
3. Eventually you will get that screwdriver in between the two halves, after that simply start prying using a couple larger screw drivers.
4. take care not to scrape up the gasket surface and you'll eventually pry it apart :)

As for the governor, yes i will back off on it. I also have a newly rebuild motor bored out to 375 and a performance driven clutch and new belt to off set the larger tires. The limited slip component went in like a dream. I was bit worried about going into the pumpkin but after doing it it was nothing....

When you mentioned not to mar the gasket surface it prompts me to ask if that requires a gasket or if it is tube sealant to reassemble?

That is why I am asking. To be sure. No where have I found a part diagram for the differential on a gas TXT (1996) and I can't see a gasket between the two halves of my differential. I would assume it uses a gasket since I don't see any evidence of liquid or paste sealant having oozed out during original assembly.

But I would like to order the gasket at the same time I order the gears.

My kit came with a new gasket. I am also one to err on the side of caution so I added a light film of gasket sealant as well

Who did you get your kit from? Right now Cart Parts Plus has a killer deal on the gears.
