Sweet Al, all good anyway I'm not gona have chance to get them on the van till next month anyhow, will sus out shipping to chch as a m8 down there is buying my old set....
Just adding my 2 cents, I would've been inclined to at least put some form of insulation between the diff and chassis, e.g. some form of rubber mount unless you have?

I have to agree with Scimitar on the insulation mounting idea .Having fitted around 50 of these rearends into varios vehicles from rods to 59 corvettes to bedfords I have found if fitted to a monocoque chassis (as in a Bedford) if it is not insulated you will suffer from drivetrain harmonics .And a Bedford being basically a biscuit tin on wheels you will suffer  :o :o .I will take some pics (I know how much you all LERRV pics ;D) of my top secret Bedford chassis and post em tomorrow   Cheers Neil

That would be very much appreciated Neil if you could. We've tried to keep to the original ride height with this and not intrude into the floor of the van which then presents it's own set of problems.

Not a problem Russell although it might be a little while before the van is home again.

Thanks for that Neil. I've forwarded this to Phil and he's going to investigate a bit further.

He might ask for a couple of more specific photos if it's not a bother.
