E30 ix differential question

Hello all, I have a spare ix diff laying around that I got with my car when I bought it but Iím not sure if the splines are good or not. I do not believe they are. Are they worth anything to anyone to be fixed or should I just get what I can for the weight at the junk yard?

Thanks!

Hey sorry, it took me awhile to dig it out of the shed. Hopefully the pictures are clear enough I had to shrink them.

So you think there's internal damage? ring and pinion?

I apologize for my lack of knowledge on the diff itself when I purchased the ix the previous owner said that the diff had been used for a time without fluid but that it could be refurbished. I am not sure whether or not this is true or not which is why I had considered scrapping it. I can provide any other pictures that might show whether it is damaged beyond repair but I donít know enough about them to diagnose any problems

Well you'll have to post a picture of the inside to see that. Take the bottom oil cover off and take a pic of the gears themselves.

Also, make sure that the ratio for the differential is the same as the rear differential. I believe the manual cars were 3.91 and the auto trans cars were 4.10 if I remember right. But as another member stated make sure you pop a cover off and get us a good picture of those gears!
