Default Pictures of welding 14 bolt rear diff to be posi

I am going to weld my 14 bolt rear diff so its a posi.
Anyone have pictures of the best way to weld it?
It is for my mud truck. I never drive it on the road.
Thanks,
van

The term is not posi but a spool, or nick named a Lincoln locker

Google "orb of traction", a pic should come up

just fill in the space between the teeth on the side gears next to the spiders...no need to weld anything togethor, and that will keep it from getting too hot and will help keep it from breaking

take it out and you can weld the whole center gears into a ball.that is the best way for a 14 bolt.

If a detroit locker is just that, always locked with the quirks on the street, why not just spool?
