    The spider gears look quite ok as do the cross shafts. Could you just clean the housing and fit new shims ? Certainly replacing this with an ATB diff is a good idea to save machining the case to try and get the standard diff working again.

    Yes I agree , I was just about to post the same thing.
    New bronze bushes would take away 90% of the slop.
    These gears only rotate when the car is turning or there is a diameter difference between the front and rear tyres.
    Of course if you spin a front wheel regularly all bets are off.
