212- It happened late in 512 TR production. All the Boxers and TRs had the welded carrier. We can do some estimating. The forged carrier happened at 512 TR Transmission Number 1513. There were 2290 512 TRs built. Disregarding spares, that would be 1513/2290 of the way, 66.1%, through production. First 512 TR, from Carbon, was 89100, last was 99743. Difference in serial numbers 10643. 10643x0.661=7035. 89100+7035=96153.
So somewhere around serial number 96000 is where the change occurred. Unless someone from around that serial number range gives us their transmission number, that is about as close as I can get.
David- Happy to see Daniel is carrying the forged diff carrier and guts. Is that the same supplier Newman uses or a better one? I did not remember Newman's having the diff guts, too.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
