So I took my Lock right apart today to replace the pins and springs, one sheared pin and the others worn. Classic unlocking lock right characteristics, but discovered this.....a broken inner spacer. Are these available separate or am I looking at buying another locker? Can I run it just the way it is? It does run up against the side gear face and in theory still work, but what does the PBB say?

You most likely won't b able to get jus that part. Thier rebuild kits only has springs and pins. From the looks of that I would say your thrust washer are worn which will cause it to lock up and not unlock around a corner.

I find it a hard requirement to machine a new center pin out of tool steel any time I install a lockrite.
They place a very large amount of pressure on the point where the driver and pin meet in a very short time.
I will speculate a pin with slots worn in it was the major cause of the load spacers.
