Me banjo broke!

Took off this morning, was doing a genteel 180 degree turn at the end of our street when it just went CHRUNCH.
It is, or was, a 3.08 LSD Banjo.
Luckily it didn't lock the wheels. Intact when I let the clutch out there's just a hint of forward power.
Something to do with the LSD bits went bling?
I didn't even give it any beanz.

Anyhow, does anyone on the brizzy area have a spare 3.08 or 3.36 banjo center lying around. Doesn't have to be LSD.

A common fault with very old diffs is the hemisphere wears where the pin for the spiders is located, this causes the gears to be less in mesh than they should, and can result in them breaking without any effort.
I have also seen the pin drop out of the hemisphere and break the crownwheel.
Infact, I have broken spider gears in a borg warner, and was able to drive it 20klm's home

The annoying thing is I got the whole thing overhauled 5 to 6 years ago, and I haven't done many miles since. Had the whole thing taken out, ratio change from 3.36 to 308 and axel bearings done also

Being a slippery, it may possibly have broken an axle, given you have some sort of movement?

banjo think you'll be lucky to find a 308 but more likely it is a broken axle. then you have to find if it is a coarse or fine spline, only way to tell is to pull the axles

good luck!

TY for the diff offers guys. And the funny pick me up pics.
My friendly mechanic is shut until the 4th, so will have to wait until then to find out whats precisely wrong.
A busted axel sounds (and feels) plausable.

Stay tuned - its been a fun filled few days. The day before yesterday our daily driver, the mighty hyundai accident, decided that it didnt like its alternator anymore. So i spent the best part of yesterday fonding a mechanic that was open and a bew alternator.
