    Thats not a diff, its an axle. The differential is inside the the bit in the middle along with the crownwheel and pinion. It's an English type axle as fitted to Escorts. Undo the end flanges through the holes in the shafts and pull the shafts out 6" then undo all the bolts holding the big lump in the middle to the long bit, pull the diff housing away and take a pic of the inside, then post it here and we will be able to tell you wether is an LSD equipped diff

    As you may notice I did say it is an "english axle" more correctly called Timkin Type, that is the name of the axle, and also that it came off an escort, by your omission of a location in your profile and your discription of an axle as a diff, I wrongly assumed that you where new to this type of car. For that i will say sorry, as for the 1/2 arsed discription, by simplifiying the terms, i.e 'big lump in the middle' complete novices will understand. once again sorry if my assumption of you being a novice upset you.
