Gaz, couple of things mate: firstly I`d remove your phone number from the message in case any spamming tw*ts pick it up and secondly I have a TZD gearbox here.
I`ll pm you shortly.

You have in fact damaged the differential output shaft and scored the housing - which may be sound on otherwise broken Turbo-diesel gearboxes.

The TD has a unique set of ratios - and final drive ratios. I think you'll find the broken bit on yours attaches to the sun wheel in the differential unit - and it may be possible to change this alone. This however may need to be set up and shimmed to avoid noise - and I don't think the instructions are in Haynes.

Gaz, if you`re still awake I have pm`d you again.
If you can help removing the box then you can come and get it whenever suits if you can fit it around my working hours.
