Thanks
I'm running a honda front wheel drive engine and transmission/trans-axle turned sideways,
so instead of the transmission out-puts going to the cars front wheels , they go to the toyota diffs

So technically no traditional t case . I wont have a high range/low range capability.With diff gearing's it should be a good crawler , and have a good cruising speed , hopefully a comfortable 40mph

Mate you've inspired me to do the same after my Mini buggy.

I had an Idea last night, to make an easy Dig unit ( rear drive lock out) why not put a brake on the drive shaft, and leave the centre diff open?

Thanks guys , I have an idea for a drive line disconect but there's not a lot of room for disk brake ,
The lathe is an old peice of junk but comes in handy , one day I will have a real lathe
The knuckle ball had some bad grooves in it from the 450,000 km on them . I welded up the groove and ground them down then polished them on the lathe

What are you doing the modified knuckle balls for? Why change them?

They need to be flipped 180 on the housing because the front diff is now in the rear , I welded up the wear marks from the felt seals,then polished them , the cool part was the gear set fits right in after the flip with out any drilling and taping of the studs
Just have to re arrange some of the longer studs that hold the third

Looks awesome! How much do you think you'll have it in once it's complete?
