Default Help-I need a 1.8 Aluminum Diff Housing Only

im posting this shameless cry for help in the BS section because thats what it is, BS
as some of you know i have a 96 parts car i bought for the sole purpose of using the motor and tranny and sell of what i can to recoup some money.
The car was hit in the front, total loss, motor had some damage to the crank pully but nothing major, i just reused my old motors crank pully and all is good. So i decide to sell the drive shaft axles and open diff all together to a fellow member.
last weekend i decide to remove everything from underneather the car including the diff and etc. and i see that the diff carrier is broken on one of the arms. Needles to say i was pissed, i didnt even bother to look at the diff when buying the car cause i knew it was an open diff.
so, if anyone semi-close to NC has one, they should all be the same from 94-05, please let me know...i will come pick it up and pay cash
i need everyones help since this seems impossible to find

just so everyone knows, i have offered to return the money or to source another carrier out of my pocket and im waiting for a reply.
either way, i will still need the carrier

sorry for long thread
mods, please do not move to WTB yet

so you need a diff case with good arms, or the diff/pumpkin? I have a pumpkin with a 4.30 ring if you want it.

aluminum thing, so carrier
the big-*** thing that hangs off of the subframe and holds the rear in place
its broken in the same place where scotts broke looking at his incident pics
partsgroup says those are designed to break if you have an accident

we should get someone to make aftermarket ones

Dan, don’t sweat it , My 6” Diff is holding up good (so far). I am sure we can find a housing before I grenade my present Diff. I can’t imagine it being difficult to source another one.

Has anyone checked on the price of a new one? These things are going to get scarce with the way the rear bumper on the NB transmits force to the frame. Just a gentle tap cracks off an ear.

Which model RX7 housing will directly swap?
<edit>
ha ha, Dan beat me to it. Seriously, let me know and I might could have something. Maybe. I dunno.

The part # I supplied cross references to all miatas from 95-05.
94 shows MA02-27-600 (no A at the end) at the same price. I don't know what the difference is.
