In this example, 088-100A-KIT fits a Land Cruiser built between 1963 and 9/73. The ending month/year means this part Fits vehicles up to but not including September 1973 or vehicles built between January 1, 1963 and August 31, 1973. The kit required for a 9/73 or September 1973 vehicle is 088-100B-KIT, which Fits 9/73-8/92 or vehicles built between September 1, 1973 and July 31, 1992. If the starting date or ending date is a 4-digit year instead of month/year, the part Fits the starting year, the ending year, and all months and years in between.
Fits 1963-9/73 - between January 1, 1963 and August 31, 1973
Fits 1963-1974 - between January 1, 1963 and December 31, 1974

Land Cruiser Locking Differential

Factory Locking Differentials

Service Tip: Differential overhaul

Specter recommends that you not attempt any work on the differential without the aid of the Factory Chassis & Body Repair Manual (see page 221). Check #13 Shaft, #18 Gears, #19 Washers for scoring. When reinstalling flange #31 use grease so you don't scar or rip the rubber lip of #29 pinion seal. If #29 Pinion seal is leaking there is a possibility the #31 Flange has a slight groove where the seal rides or that #26 Shims have spun and have become thinner. This also causes play in the #31 flange. If you were just to tighten the nut, improper bearing pre-load #20 to #27 will occur and cause bearing failure. Check #27 Bearing for scoring on race & rollers. Also check #26 shims for spinning. Replace parts as needed. Always replace #29 Pinion Seal on replacement of any parts. Torque spec on #33 nut is 160 ft/lbs.
