My Craigslist STEAL!

So the other day on craigslist I found something interesting, a powertrax locker for $175. So I drove the 2 hours to go get it. It was still in the box. The guy was about to put it in but then he had to sell the truck. I looked on summit racing and it was $479.99. It was a good deal I would say.

Now it just needs to get warm so I can install it.

does it give tolerances? like my aussie locker has what tolerances it should be between and what the gap should be, youll need a feeler gauge and a micrometer. . harbor frieght if you wanna be cheap.

it came with check block to check clearancesbetween the 2 halves. If it fits one way youre good if it fits the other way its bad.

I need to know how to rotate the inner part on the other piece

i really don't see how they can charge almost $500 new for a little lunch box locker when a full carrier locker isnt much more.
