    They are on the inside of the carrier. Strange, right. I thought so the first time I saw one. This may help, http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billavista/14b_bible/index.html

    also, if you look through the slits in the edge, you can see the spiders, or springs for the locker. If it has three places for a carrier shaft its a govlock. Search around, and you can find most anything.

    get a pic at more of an angle to the carrier, like fron the side of the ring gear, not just overhead

    Yeah its an open case, but cant tell if it has a detroit form your angle. Look in the side, youll either see a gear or a spring. I agree, not to be an ass like some forums, but try a search.
