So my lead on a diff case has dried up, so looks like i gotta buy a new lsd 😕 

Been looking at a gripper lsd, anyone using one, are they any good ?

We managed to get the battery box bolted in (cheers Jack) needs a touch up of yellow around the top

More soon

😁

I’ve a gripper in the Anglebox, it’s bloody noisy when cold. Sounds like the props loose !! Once it’s warmed up it’s great. Supposed to be able to withstand more than a good thrashing and are very highly rated.

the zf has always been a bit clunky, yeah ive read some good stuff on the net, but nice to hear it from someone who is using one

cheers 😉

small update, been making new bumper mounts out of aluminium for my new flyweight rear bumper, gonna chop the ends so i can use my rs end caps on it. might get round to making fibreglass end caps eventually, but will go with the ford ones for now.

pics soon

Yeah i was going to do that, but the case had closed up a bit, and it was hard to get the internals out, i made a lump of steel to bang down the groove to try and open it back out, but its split the case down both sides, did think about welding it up, but dunno how safe it would be or how long it will last

Cheers

I bit the bullet today and ordered a new gripper diff 😲😜😁 i hope we get as many trouble free years as my zf gave me

( i bought it second hand in 1992 😲😆)

Still on the look out for a case for my old zf as i could chuck it in my v6 transit 😁

Still getting bits done, managed to get my new bumper fitted tonight, its a bit flimsy, have fitted the genuine end caps for now, might have a go at making some glass ones at a later date, trying to get it back together asap, want to go racing

More soon
