my obx lsd experience
alright so the application is for my 1990 crx si
delivered on wednesday

after unpacking i was quick to dissasemble
and muchto my amazement there were no stripped bolts and all torqued properly

F22bluez 04-15-2010 09:01 PM

i did alot of research before i made the deciscion to purchase this, read some horror stories, and alot of people are running em wit no problems and making some serious h.p.

so onward with the dismanteling

F22bluez 04-15-2010 09:05 PM

i was pretty stoked up until i started to try and spin the gears, one of the lower planetary gears seemed to be seized, upon further investigation

there was a ridge left from the machining process it 's pretty hard to see, but it's there

this is the best shot i got of it

F22bluez 04-15-2010 09:10 PM

all of the area's for the planets and sun gears were still realy rough from the milling process, so i went to town with the dremel, started out with the die grinder for the ridge, then went to the green grinding stone, then the sanding drum, then the polisher and this is what i got
there was one other area that sketched me out
it's the alignment tab for the two housing's but a lil dremel and then ifelt safe about it

F22bluez 04-15-2010 09:14 PM

now onto to reassembly
this is what i used for the "break in " lube

being very liberal
i coated the entire housing for the planetaries, sun gears an inner race gears
got er all lubed up and almost ready for instalation

waiting to get new bolts to connect the two shell's, gonna pick up some 6 or 12 point's, either grade 8 or 10.9, whatvers available lol

more to come, gotta get back to work lol

terrynfischer 04-15-2010 11:14 PM

OH SHIT MAN this is awesome but ??? you can just dremmel on that? and how does it feel now? im guessing it is nice and smooth now since yor puttin it together. Just askin If it was'nt perfect when i got a part like that i would have sent that shit back

Pata078 04-15-2010 11:28 PM

hmm, almost makes me want to move to DIY lol

looking good so far.

in for more pics.

SweetHonda24 04-16-2010 05:16 AM

Nice! What made you disassemle the LSD? I wouldn't have thought to pull it apart and check the quality of the inner workings.

terrynfischer 04-16-2010 11:15 AM

yeah seriously I would have sent that shit back. well actually I would have just slaped it in and would have been very pissed when it didnt work out. lol well I geuss we know what we should do when doing this lol

F22bluez 04-16-2010 01:56 PM

if ya wanna move it to diy that's kewl, idc really lol. i figured i'd post it here cuz i felt it more of a product review more than diy

if i wasn"t on a time frame issue i'd consider sending it back, but then i'd have to pay for shipping.

what made me take it apart was from the research i've done, there were a batch made (when i don"t know) where the threads were stripped, and the fact that the gear's didn"t move freely made me really sketched out so i tore it apart.

so now it moves fairly well, but with that trans gel in there it's prettty stiff, but once it's installed the oil will get in there and should be good to go

monday we start manual trans in school, re-doing the synchros and bearings. Hopefully the overhaul should only take about a week, day one will be removal of the trans from the bay, and tear down. now thatit's the weekend there won"t be any more work done.

F22bluez 04-16-2010 09:18 PM

this is where i did alot of my research about the lsd if ne1's interested

oh lol here is one of the horror stories

F22bluez 04-21-2010 08:57 PM

so apparently obx has a F rating with the BBB................

terrynfischer 04-22-2010 10:48 AM

oh shit man that figures I am not going to buy another thing OBX now lol
yes that deffinatelly says something about them

F22bluez 04-30-2010 10:10 AM

chris42192 04-30-2010 02:33 PM

CAR is probably what he means..

terrynfischer 04-30-2010 05:29 PM

AHHHH i see

F22bluez 05-01-2010 11:20 AM

ya car lol, basically the stock diff has recess' cut into the diff casing so you can torque the bolts down with a socket...........ya the obx don"t got that, it's pretty sweet tring to torque down 80 ft/lbs on a 1/4" drive socket

F22bluez 05-05-2010 05:50 PM

so here's the stock diff
and now the obx

see the differences lol

F22bluez 05-05-2010 05:53 PM

all the retaining bolts have a flange on them, and they ALL had to be ground down to fasten the damm thing

the impact wont fit
neither will the deep well
or the short well
only the quarter inch drive............
