As some of you all ready know, I managed to scrape a hole in the bottom of my h233b and was leaking diff fluid on the last day of ECXC 2021.
My friend, Joe was able to patch it with RTV so I could add some fluid and get home.

It seems pointless to try and repair it so I picked up an unwheeled h233b out of an '04 from a local junkyard; $100, no "core charge". It was a bit rusty but seems to have never touched the ground while in a truck.

I cleaned it up a bit with a wire wheel and sprayed with PB Blaster

Then was able to pull the third member out without trouble...even saving all 10 of the now discontinued part# 38321-06J1A "Bolt-Final Drive" studs!

Though my current one has held up to my abuse for years my friend Dave wants to try reinforcing the bottom of the housing by welding a “diaper” made for a Toyota on it. Then we'll check the shape of my axles and maybe swap them (there is debate among my buddies as to whether they are somewhat twisted or not)...
Then I'll put my modified (5:13, ARB) 3rd member in and swap...
Anyways, that's the plan, thanks for looking.
