Default 1993 rear differential gasket

My mechanics are having a problem finding the rear differential gasket for my 1993 6 cyl KC truck. They are telling me that the diff has 11 studs and they can only find 10 hole ones or they are oval and not circular. Can anyone advise where to get an 11 hole circle style gasket that fits


Thanks in advance for your help

Are they "former" Nissan mechanics because they are trying to locate a carrier bearing gasket?

No, seriously, that's not a real thing. A carrier bearing supports the middle of a two-piece driveshaft, which your truck may have. They do not have, nor do they require gaskets.

I can't think of anything that sounds like that in the vicinity of the rear brakes.

Me thinks he told me the wrong part. Clarification it is the rear differential gasket.
The problem is the diff has 11 studs and is a circle. He has ordered a few but they are for 10 studs and are oval.

I know that he should know better but we can call the same part many different names.

The differential gasket you need will depend on what rear axle you have. There are a few different ones. The code for the axle should be on the info panel inside the driver door... Personally, I'd be leary of a mechanic that can't even identify what axle you've got.
