so heres the story

im in the proses of changing the diff on my 72 nova from a open one to a LSD one. im keeping the gears that are in the car witch are 3:08 so im taking them off the open diff and putting them on the LSD unit.

i have put the diff in to the housing with the shims going back where thay were on the open diff and it fitted nice and snug BUT there is to much play in the gear mesh!

help help help heres a photo

Did you by any chance reverse the side carrier shims? The change over from open to posi can usually be done easily just as you described and with no new set-up needed. Without further info it is hard to tell what has taken place.
