Bloody hell it perfectly sensible advice like this that is going to get me a divorce....The Quaife ATB type LSD diff makes your box capable to handle more engine torque as it always even out the engine torque over both wheels. Less stress over just one wheel side drive line and so on internal in the tranny.
So if you have the change to do it as your transaxle is already open its now time to do it.
Thank Shaun but I suspect a spare nut is harder to find than the tool it’s self...Ouch.....I have a LSD on mine but cannot comment as its still very much in build as you know. Sure there will be comment on here, as you say good time to do it but they are not cheap, still no foreign holidays for a while so treat yourself!!
I did read on the web someone made a tool using an other castellated nut and used that with studs tapped into it the tighten the one in the box.
I have been trying to set the preload on my differential but I can't find a tool to set the castellated nut! Any ideas? I have already gone down the wood and plastic hammer route and I just can't tighten it enough. Suggestions wanted -Grahamwww.thelotusforums.com
Better to ask for forgiveness than ask permission! Chapter 3, verse 1 of the marriage hand book I failed to receive in marriage 1,2. My girlfriend has gone with me to look at 3 original 40’s, Studebaker, Gilmore, Arburn Cord Dusenberg, Indy museums, and is encouraging the building of a 40. She has a new Mini Cooper S she rarely drives under 90mph. I love her. We have agreed not to marry so we can keep enjoying our car hobby.Well there’s no going back now...
