More great stuff there Jim! Hoping you'll post details of the gearbox rebuild, is the Quaife LSD a "disc" LSD or is it a variation on the Tor-Sen theme?
Cheers,
Dave

Thanks Dave. The Quaife diff is a plate or disc type, much harsher than the Torsen type.
I am painting the casing at the moment, probably should have built it first, I will post details of the rebuild once underway.
First attempt to try the old parts in the new casing when I dropped the diff in it locked solid, took a moment to discover the early casing has been ground out in a couple areas to accommodate the larger diff, I am expecting a few more surprises like this as it goes together, hopefully they can be overcome.

Yes should sound good but sure the novelty will soon wear off
