Bren .... are they hard to get? if you like i could check out how much to get it over the ditch. It will only end up as a door stop or in the scrap bin.... we are getting $200 a tonne for steel.

Driveline / CGW (Cut Grind Weld) Yet Another Diff Story.
« on: February 12, 2009, 07:20:14 PM »
And So It begins.......   I thought I had scored, Two Salsbury LSD diffs for the price of one, one buggered one not.  All good so far. Turns out the buggered one with a couple of teeth chipped on the pinion is a 3.55 and that was the ratio i wanted. So i opened up the other one and ye gods its a 4.44  Ah well at least i have all the bits to GCW a wide one. So if any one in NZ wants a 4.44 Salsbury LSD head I have one to trade for a 3.55 unless you have a 3.08.

Tune in next week for the next exciting episode  of CGW.... MWA HAHAHAHA

Thanks  Noid

I have just scored a Salisbury Lsd diff with 3.55.  I notice that the VN runs a 3.01.... and i am guessing here, the difference is because of the extra surface area we are pushing in a CF.

i am hanging out for an entire wreck fingers crossed and all. ;D

Thanks Ben and Craig, for the advice.   I have two(2) swb beddies one in better nick than the other body wise.  By the sound (text) of things its a good thing I cant afford much more than a VN or VP.
On the plus side I am a fitter welder by trade and have access to a large lathe. So i am quite keen to have a crack at widening a diff.  I figure if I get two the same and cut them right I can assemble and CGW  (Cut Grind Weld) up a wide one ::). Sounds a little simplistic I know but I think it would be quite straight forward. Any thoughts as to exactly which diff to mangle? ;D

Btw Craig ever heard of a "Monday Hammer"?  No!  Its a 28lb hammer used for tipping when rolling steel plate and its  called a monday hammer because you need two days rest before you can use It :D

Hi All  I'm new in here. ;D

This seems like the right place to ask this question of the v6 converted.... when you do the conversion do you transplant the entire drive train?  ie engine, transmission, diff.

Thanks in advance.
