I destroyed my No Slip at the first Centralia meet, drove it with broken springs for about 500+ miles. Bought a new spring set for about 35 bucks and it was good as new.
The Lock rite was the less "subtle" of the two lunchbox lockers made by Richmond. The No Slip was intended to be a little more "friendly" around turns.
If it's a No Slip, and the teeth are good, you just found a good deal.

nice find.

*Everyone stay calm this a thread jack.*

I was on the powertrax site, says they only make the rear locker for an 87-94 ranger.

But the rear end specs are all proper. 28 spline, 8.8, 10 bolt. Matter?

No, it will work with newer trucks.

Sounds like a POS.
Why waste money on it? You are always complaining that you don't have time/money to fix the stuff already broken on your truck, buying a broken locker probably isn't the best idea.
Just an honest opinion.

SOMETHING happend to that locker in the first place. He NEEDS to send you pics and you need to post them here by first hosting them on a file host site, THEN post 'em here. Not directly from your email. Won't work that way.

I vote a big hell no on that locker. SOMETHING happend to it in the first place, and it most likely has chewed up side gear teeth like what Brian posted earlier of his fubarred Aussie.

Definately looks like a lockright or an aussie. the teeth dont look bad. might be worth the little dough to go ahead and get it imo. could be perfectly good. The teeth appear to be 'ok' but those pics look like junk....the dude needs to learn to use his 'macro' option on his camera. So it's hard to tell in those pics. If those two pins are broke in the side gears, i think it'd be one huge pain to remove 'em.

The broken side doesn't look good. Somebody beat on that thing. Even if you got new pins it probably wouldn't hold them for very long. I'd skip it.

Not an aussie. My aussie pins looked different, and didn't have the extra whole to pry the pins out.
I say.... Skip it.
Minimum it needs new pins, most likely new cam gears. And even then, who knows.
But that's just me. I would rather pay for a brand new aussie that works and is warrantied.

Does not look like the No Slip I had, but that was years ago. I'd pass, NO WAY I'd run those pins. Break that and the whole rear will follow, hate for that to happen at 60mph.

lol.

Let me follow up with my comment about the aussie while we're talking about them.

The locker I showed in the picture was the first one I installed in my sport trac. When I went to install it, I could not get the locker to fit with the side gear shims. The tolerances were just too tight. My buddy and I tried for a while, and I couldn't see it going in there. I couldn't locate any side gear shims, and everyone told me they didn't make specific thickness side gear shims. I installed the locker without them, because I needed to drive it. The spacing between the cam gears was larger than spec, but it worked fine. For a while that is. It start to skip, and spin up. After a while, it would just rev up and spin trying to drive down the road.
I called aussie locker and told them what happened, and they sent me a new complete locker, and a return shipping label.
I went to install the new one, same problem. I called them and didn't really get anywhere (that part was frustrating). I started to hammer on the center pin a bit, and decided it was too tight, but I couldn't get it out, lol. There was only one way left to go, so I kept hitting it with a BFH until it went in. It worked just fine ever since then, even though it was tighter than spec. I have heard this is common with the 31 spline 8.8, for whatever reason. But nevertheless, they sent me a new one for free even though I installed the locker out of spec and it failed. So in my opinion, it is worth paying for a new aussie for warranty issues.

Its NOT a noslip. Possibly a lockrite part#1820 or a Detroit E-Z Locker part#DTL-813A024 ask him what the #'s that are stamped on it & call powertrax or eaton see if they sell just those center drivers. found a couple pics but not very good

lockrite Detroit
