I bought one from Sue Miller about eight years about ago, she had several, and may have some left.

I got a new 3.77 crown wheel and pinion from Burtons about 1 year ago and it was fine with no problems on assembly and no noises when running.

I got my 3.54 from Burtons. It whined quite badly to start, but now, 2 years and a couple of thousand miles later, it's nearly quiet. It's not perfect but I think quiet enough that it's not worth removing, adjusting and refitting. It was completely quiet during a run yesterday, so the jury is still out.....

I've no doubt that the CWP set itself was fine, but the "expert" who fitted it for me was, um, not. He even used the wrong size seal for one of the output shafts which I had to remove and replace. But now, miracles, the diff doesn't leak from anywhere! :-)
