I cleaned out the differential case and also probed the oil for metal and I am not see any real pieces of metal, shavings from the PTO shaft and some scaring on the differential housing where it hung on the ring gear. Haven't used an inspection camera yet but from the last of bits of metal in the oil, I am thinking that the damage may be minor. Will have to go in and see. I can get a complete differential but wait on that. From what I can see of the ring gear, it looks fine.
