Viscous LSD fluid

They are meant to be non serviceable, but if I can find some fluid Id like to have a go at replacing it, Ive got some spare LSD units which I could experiment with and drill & tap a drain/refill port. Any ideas where I could get some of the fluid from?

You used to be able to buy it in a big syringe from BNT

Nulon from Supercheap? Will a cobalt drill with drilling fluid make a hole?

Not a Mitsubishi with the various grades of fluid for various diffs etc. Mitsi dealer for the fancy stuff?

nah, its not a conventional oil. Its a silicone oil which Ive found in small quantities for RC cars but nothing otherwise. Ive also read in a couple spots that the quantity and pressure of the oil in there is quite important to the performance of the diff. Might be something I shouldn't mess with maybe. Its just gunna be a stop gap till I can afford a metal plate style diff.
