Looking for axel drive gears !

1 Are you using the MTFCA Axle book?
2 The 2520 differential gears are usually OK, but if you need one try Bob's.
I'm not sure I understand the rest. Maybe pictures would help.
The inevitable often happens.

Bob rebuilds the differential halves. He probably also has all the other parts you need to replace.

It appears that none of the parts in your photos is reusable. If the axles were loose in the differential gears it's probable that the axles may be no good either. It should take a lot of force to get the gears off of the axle shafts.

If you decide to buy new axle shafts from Chaffin's, ask them if they have a good set of side gears that they can press onto the new shafts for you before they ship them to you. Saves you the hassle of pressing them on yourself. :)
