I have a 1998 P38 Range Rover and the rear diff tends to lock up when doing tight turns. Can the limited lip be adjusted ?

but it is for a professional transmission shop to do the adjustment
problems as stated start from the wrong oil being used in the differential
have a diff oil change done , flush out the diff the put the correct limited slip diff oil back in
it is not standard diff oil but special oil

I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X. The rear differential I believe is a Dana 44.I want to buy a Ricmond locker for the rear diff, but I dont know how many splines the axle is? Can you help me?

Generally you can find that out by showing the ID tag to a parts guy at a dealer. However...after being fooled several times by tags that were not from the original diff I was working on, I use the tried and true method of actually removing the axle and counting the splines.
Up-grading to a positraction rear is a good idea but one thing to remember is that you need to re-set all clearances properly or the gears will quickly self destruct. A cheaper and easier swap is to find a complete differential in a scrapyard and install the entire unit (complete) Then, your only concern is that you exactly match the gear ratio of the one you are replacing (again, don't rely on the tag...count the gear teeth on the ring gear and pinion gear.) Posi units are sometimes difficult to locate but if yours isn't broken, you have time to search.

No power to rear diff lock on 80 series landcruiser

The rear locker will only operate when the centre diff lock is engaged (amber light on dash) and your speed is below approx. 5mph.

If the rear locker indicator does not illuminate, check the 10-amp "Gauge" fuse in the internal fuse panel.

If the light flashes but doesn't become steady, this is probably a siezed / jammed rear locker. On soft ground, repeatedly turn the locker on and off while driving in gentle circles to see if that frees it up. Also, tapping the actuator while an assistant operates the locker can help free it up.

4WD selected but only RWD active

Your sami sounds as if the either the lockers, the axles or the transfer box are not doing too good... An open locker or a broken axle will steal all the power going to the front of the car. A transfer problem is also a good reason for this kind of thing, but this usualy happens with some noise, so you'd probably know if the transfer was bad. The front axle hub a.k.a. the diff can also be bad. I'd take off both lockers - 12 screws on each and a circlip (make sure they are in the free position ). You can now see the axles themselves and try to rotate them manually. While engaged in 4wd - they should not move more than a 1/4 turn. If both move free your diff or transfer box are bad, depending whether you see the front driveshaft moving or not. If drvshft is moving - transfer is bad. If not - the diff is gone. If only one is free - your axle is broken.  Not a biggie to diagnose but one hell of a pita to fix... I'd advise you to head to the shop and and have a pro fix it. Cheers emi
