    I was hoping to fit this 325 Diff, to my 328, after opening it up its pretty fucked.

    The 2 small cogs are completely fucked, but can I still put in a plate and weld it?

    Yep they appear to be fine, turn ok without any stiffness.
    The larger cog can be put back in, it came out when I took a output shaft out.

    Yeah, you'll want that in there, as thats what trasmits power to the output shaft (see the splines)

    weld all that shit together, with the planetary gears in there, nice and easy ;)

    Just weld the side output planet gears to the diff centre. If you have TIG it's far better

    Got the other gear back in now, so just weld in a plate between the 2 gears as I would do normally?
    It all seems to move freely, few marks around but none on the gears.
