howdy... bought me beddie a few weeks ago 1980 CF LWB 253 eng/auto... drove it home bout 160 kms... all cool bananas ,,did notice some grumbling from p/s rear w/b & some diff oil dribblin out.. upon return began investigations... to find  someone had done..,wot in the essex tongue could only  be,& rightly so,deemed as a.. "rite ol bodge & scarper job". on the diff axles..sigh.whacked her arse up in the air , noticed wheel moved in/out bout 3 odd mil, pulled axle out to find the retaing ring for the sealed bearing had been tackwelded on :o allowing the slop,, i assume this is not a "good thing" to find?? & so began th rite royal pain in the proverbial task to id diff through casting no,s it came up  a ford 9 inch LSD, the bango casing is a 1968..,pinion casing is 1965,also noticed the leafs were mounted  on top of diff..is this the norm ??? pulled d/s axle out  it was press fitted as is the norm but wen pulled bearing off noticed bluing around the taper.  also noticed axles were different lengths bout 3 mil.is this also the norm for LSD??? noticed on the forums the terms 28 spline & 31 spline being bandyed about fairly often, have counted 21 splines on end of these ones...have measured diff lenth as being 1560m. being diff illiterate & wondering if this diff is a pile of snot,have a few different sorts of diffs on hand,1 v8 from a wb panelvan and 1 from a v8 hx ute. are there any diffs that bolt straight in?
