    Just received shipment of a 99 Torsen with drive & half shafts. Was packed with balled up grocery store plastic bags. Housing arm is broken (clean break) shipper notified.

    1. Can Miata differentials be repaired?

    2. What other year Miata housings could I use with the internals of the 99 Torsen

    I get them welded all the time. Make sure you remove seals before welding.

    The 94-2005 housings interchange and you can also use the 86-91 RX7 housing if you change the bushings. The RX7 housing would not be legal for SM

    One of the "wings" is broken. What type of welding do you use to repair Miata housings?

    TIG machine. It's a Good Thing(tm) to cultivate friendships with people that have access to (and ability to use!) welding and machine-tool equipment.

    There are welding shops all-over the country, surely you could find one in your local yellow pages that is willing and able, yes?
