Well maybe the miata differential is different than an 8.8 ford, 9" ford, or 12 bolt chevy.. but I've never used giant micrometer to measure that.

Here: NEW 7-8" Aerospace Metal Frame O.D. Micrometer - eBay (item 330275471343 end time Aug-25-09 11:57:42 PDT) 15$ Buy it now for a 7-8" Micrometer.

I just recently got my ticket last November. Took the test in 94 but couldn't pass the code, then just never got around to taking it again. Working on General now, should get it next tuesday.

Congratulations, I got my novice ticket in 90, upgraded to technician a few months later. I got my general ticket when they dropped the 13 WPM code test. I have not been active in the last five years, but will become active again once I return to the real world.

Thanks, I'm really enjoying it! Nobody in my family is interested in the hobby so it was completely self motivated. That might be why it took so long to return and take the test. Now that code is no longer required I'm actually interested in learning it.

Call Munzo 469-767-8351. He will swap a miata turbo'ed motor for $480. And that is including swaping all the turbo stuff over.
He has his own shop, and a Super SWEET 450HP 240SX.

He does good work. He put gears in my brothers car.
and swaped rearends and motors for me through the years.

Tell him Todd with the Turbo Miata sent you. He will hook you up. Usually same day or next morning.

ok I'll be honest, I didn't use the 7" mic either. I just put a new crush piece in and used a ghetto-fabbed go-nogo gauge for the preload made of thick sheet metal and ground to to the max and min limits. ****'s worked fine for 000's of miles.

I didn't use the micrometer either. I tightened until the bearings felt overly tight and then backed it off a bit. It does make me kinda nervous though.

That may be the single most useful thing I've seen on MT in 2 weeks.

I second using Ben from PuddyMod Racing. I just used him to put together my new diff with a Guru LSD. See the thread at 4th pass and "GRUNCH!" - MX-5 Miata Forum for some cool pics of my blown-up Torsen and the rebuilt thing-o-beauty.
