Thank you. I talked to the mechanic and he seems to think that a pathfinder gasket may fit. Their going to try that tomorrow.

it wont fit. the center section is bigger.

why are you not just using rtv here? 99% of diffs just call for that.

ive encountered too many mechanics like this guy is dealing with. If they are asking YOU questions, get in your truck and drive away.

Fluid inside the diff is not under a particularly heavy amount of pressure.

Take some shoebox cardboard and just MAKE one by using a light ball peen hammer. Seal it with Permatex brown, both sides. If you can get the original part, fine. But I knew a guy once who had this old L-20B Datsun four banger truck motor out on the ground. And just for kicks, we did an overhaul of most of the gaskets using Pematex and shoeboxes. Just to see if it could be done. Back in the day, Ronnie and I were crazy enough to do stuff like that. Especially when you could buy these motors from a virtual mountain of motors at the wrecking yard. For twenty five bucks each, no less...take your pick boys, they would tell us. Those motor mountains had Chevy V-8's, Fords, Datsun, Toyota, VW, you name it. The good old days.

About the only places it CAN'T be done is intake manifold, exhaust manifold gasket, and head gasket. Then we actually put it back INTO a 75 Datsun truck. No leaks. Of course, you had to touch a battery to the starter motor and pour gas down the carb BEFORE reinstalling, just to make sure it ran. Watch out for that tree! (Flywheel, lol)

You can also buy gasket material and make your own that way, of course. Not that hard.

EDIT: Here's a hint for you folks you take your rigs into the high country. Besides tools and the usual spares, always pack a few women's nylons. In a pinch, they can replace a broken fan belt for a while. Tie em on tight and then trim the nylon right back to the knot.
