Does anyone recognize this LSD?

This is a 10 bolt ring gear, and 27 spline axle, but I don't know the axle type. I have not seen the axle bearing surface like this, maybe for a antilock ring or something?

I don't think it is a toy open.



I don't know about selectable, and I have no idea why the gear side of the bearing surface is notched. I think if I identify that, I'll have it.

I got this for free, and it will be so much easier to sell if I knew what the hell it is...

This is the closest I have found so far, A detroit for a 10 bolt, but the pics online are always the same stock pics, and the webing on the ring side is not a match.

Well I have another piece to the mystery...

Those odd charcters cast into the housing, when read right side up, spell "MERCEDES BENZ" :homer::homer::homer:

I have some excuse, I don't speak or read German. :shaking:

The notches in the bearing shoulder are odd.
The notches are the engagement for the locker. It has a collar on the axle shaft that is actuated and locked into the notches.

It doresn't look like a selectable locker, it looks like a front (or rear) axle disconnect.


:edited:

an axle disconnect would not work well by locking to the axle to the carrier :shaking:
(well it would work but i dont think auto manufactures would allow a solidly locked front axle)
