That "line" is a groove that VW machined into the gear for ID purposes.
Clean away the gunk, is it a G833, K833, or an O833?

it is a G833. wish it is a K.

he has quite a few tranny parts everywhere, but always taped together in matched pairs i supposed.

he seems knowledgeable about tranny parts and told me has has found 4 sets of swing ZF LSD but sold all. told him to find one for me :lol:

will go back and look for the following

1. course 002 3rd and course 0.89 002 and fine 0.89 002
2. K 4.125
3. whatever good used bearings

Best is the O type. Pretty rare though.
