Think it's just the pictures

The marks on the wheels are water spots from where I washed it down after degreasing it

(Apparently it becomes OCD when you start cleaning the innards of your differential)

Couldn't find any cracks in the carrier, so I'm hoping I'm good to go


How do I go about checking the bearings, and are there any that should and/or should not be replaced?
I don't want to disturb something if it's going to cause issues, but on the other hand, if It's only going to be rebuilt with the same spacers and shims I'm quite happy to pull the whole thing to it's bare components



Also, I saw Marcus just mentioned in another thread about the drain plugs

What's the best way to drill the casing, and what size drill and tap will I need?
I saw that Canleys use the gearbox drain plug in their diffs so I was going to do the same
