Blew an open diff...

This was a good diff, and I just changed the fluid a month ago.
It's good I have a 3rd spare in the shed.

i have never heard of breaking and open diff, atleast not on a subaru. a friend of mine blew out his spider gears on his front axle on his dodge power wagon mid-late 70's, had to dig him out of the snow he was stuck in a 4' ditch. that was a fun night spent 3hrs getting him out.

When you put it in 4wd, and take a corner, it'll bind up like normal and then whabam! unload as the diff skips.
The last diff I grenaded was an open one, but i was doing some nice posi-style burnouts and had some wheel hop happen. That one the crosspin broke and the carrier cracked and the spyder gears shattered and jammed in the ring gear.. it was ugly.
What's a pain is that i couldn't get the roll pins in right last time, so I just hammered one in from each side of the axels. I was in a hurry to get some wheel drive back, and I figured I wouldn't blow this diff because I was done doing burnouts with the big tires on. I'll have to drill the rollpins out.
I'll take some pictures of the last diff I blew tomorrow, and when I have time to swap this one out, I'll take some pics of the inside of it.
