i would'nt tie the car up very long.
Before you invest in a differential, chase down all your vacuum leaks. Take a close look at the 2 vacuum switches on top of the valve cover, or just bypass them. Fix all the vacuum leaks and the clunking will go away.

just curious...

Would a worn out flex disc make any noise? Maybe going in and out of gear?

Also - I heard somewhere that the ratios are stamped on the rear case. Is this true? I havent looked.

Thanks.

Can't give you affirmative details on the flex disc as I have not suffered a bad one.........yet.

The ratio of the diff is stamped into the diff housing adjacent to the rear cover on a small machined flat.
