Torsen differential Q's

Lets talk clutches and everything drivetrain related

Can we get a pic of the open diff drain plug? This seems to be our key to determining the diff.

The open differential plug (at least on mine) is the plug with the circle,
I will take a picture of the torsens plug. Have patience I have to find
the charger for my laptop, my digital camera download software is
not supported by window XP :shoots:

Looks like a bust to me. I have an M on my other st165 open diff.
there is a picture of the open diff plug in the pics I already posted, the pic with the open on the left and torsen on right, you can see the plug heads as I placed them on top of the diffs.

If this bolt method is correct, then I too have a torsen diff in my car already. Maybe the problem I am having is suspension and that is why its acting open because I pull one wheel off the ground.

The drain plug method has already been shown to be unreliable though....read a few posts above yours, people have the same plug on both open and torsen diffs.

I think we are talking about the drain plug that accepts a allen head
wrench not the circle one. The allen head one is on my new Torsen
differential I have in the basement. Still working on taking a picture of
it, at leest I have the basement cleaned up enough where I can get to
the differential. Can I email the pic to someone, I am not any good
at hosting pictures :(

Okay guys, i have an open diff from my 92 alltrac, and pretty soon within the next few days hopefully, i will be dropping my rear diff in my 93. I'm HOPING to god it's torsen. In any case, if it is torsen, what i can and will do is take pics of both diff housings of the exact same angles and what not. Hopefully will find something concrete then.

I already have both differentials, both on the ground, both with the rear
case opened. I bought the Torsen new so I know what I got :)

Guess I will take the picture tonight and email it to previous poster, give
me an hour

Now I am even more confused. My drain plug looks like the one alclon posted. iner beveld with qa raised circle vs the plain plug on the open diff. This one posted now with the allen hole just confuses the whole matter more.

top two pictures are of the drain plug (bottom of differential) and the
10mm hex that I needed to remove the plug. The bottom picture is
of the differential (yes its a brand new Torsen) with the plug in it.
Sorry if it confuses the issue but maybe US car didnt get the differential
at all ? Removing the cover is a sure fire way to find out though

OK there is still one last hope, I did notice that on the Torsen there were groves on the inside of the output shafts. My Open diff didn't have these groves, so lets look at that.
