E34 530i 3.07 Medium Case LSD

I have a 3.07 limited slip diff pulled from my manual 1994 530 with 220k miles. It's nice and tight, with fresh fluid in the last 10k miles that still looks like sparkling clean. The part number is...

Is it turning over and just not "catching" when it's cold, or does the starter solenoid click when you turn the key, or do you get absolutely nothing?
Sounds exactly like an old battery to me. How...

Instead of trashing it, they could have easily made a quick $500- $1000 in parts (cats are likely $400 alone, plus tranny and engine), and that's not even taking into...

I would honestly source a CCM. Super easy to swap out, and a usual "wear item" on these cars, so if it isn't the CCM and the same problem persists, you will have a spare for the future.
