The clutch plates can be pre-loaded via adjuster grub screws and there are 3 different combinations of fitting the clutch plates to give a fully adjustable LSD.

Bearings Adapters ( for use on pre 1984 Range Rover and Land Rover)
The KAM LSD will fit metric type Diffs i.e.; axles from around 1984> onwards with bearing part number RTC 3095.
In some cases RTC2726 is used, the outside diameter is correct but the inside is too small (41.20 mm)
You have to use bearing part number RTC 3095 because KAM half shafts will not fit, we produce a larger diameter half shaft that will only fit the RTC3095 carrier bearing.
If you have an older type “Pre Rationalised” differential or “Imperial Type Carrier”, you will have to purchase bearing adapter rings that fit over the outside of the new RTC3095 bearing.
