.First things first drain the diff and remove the cover plate
More like heavy grease than oil
The crown wheel has a few slightly pitted teeth, but very useable
Just when I was getting excited, a broken tooth on the pinion, bugger, but no drama as I have plenty of spares. Just means a bit more work.

The next step will be to pull apart the ute rear end in the next day or so, and check that out.
I will then use the best parts from the two, plus a few spares to make the ute's restored rear end
