"One Wheel Drive" 86 Spider

Had the 86 Spider up on four jack stands today...(it's been off the road for nearly 5 years)... and on turning one of the rear wheels, noticed that the other did NOT turn in the opposite direction or even barely at all. I started her up and ran her through the gears and noticed that one wheel barely turned, while the other seem to take up drive and behave normally. No brake binding or wheel bearing issues...I have confirmed the correct LSD casting on the diff case. Do I have the worlds first One wheel drive spider or any ideas what might be going on? LSD Friction plates shot? some other internal damage?

Kindest, Peter

No way to tell on jack stands. Go out on a damp road, rev to 4500, dump the clutch fast and burn rubber. If you end up with two black streaks you are fine if daily driving and not auto crossing or racing

No way to tell anything about the limited slip function with it in the air....but it's a bit weird the other wheel didnt turn in the opposite direction. Was it in gear?

When I manually turned the one wheel, it was in neutral.
