1985 SD33T MK LWB Wagon
Since I found that metal in the 233 diff I've resigned to using the H260, better LSD I suppose.Yeah i was joking lol, don't think an MQ drive shaft offcut will make it into the "this might come in handy" pile.
Yeah 14 probably would be about right. I think SD and P40 used the same shafts from memory, but between those, the L28, LWB and SWB, 4&5 speed, C200, H233 and H260 rear diff and L28 auto there would have been a fair few combinations.
Anyway, Dad has an old GU Ute 260 3rd member (the 35 spline one) in 4.375 gears, and a wagon LSD (37 spline), so I was going to remove my MK 3rd and use the GU one in the MK housing, swapping the LSD's so it's a 37 spline, but it seems like the actual hole for the carrier to sit in is smaller in the MK housing by 1mm or so, so it only just doesn't fit. That means I need to take the gears off the ute diff and put them on mine, which is more effort for the diff guy, more money for me, and I don't have a spare 4.11 diff if I ever want it back.
Do you know if the hole in the housing that the carrier sits in is slightly smaller on the MK diff than the GU one?
Edit: oh yeah, and remember how you hadn't heard of an l28 with a H260? Well there's white chalk or paint writing on the back of the housing, so it probably came from a wrecker to go with the 351.
