Lsd rebuild question

Hi all, I hope I havenít caused myself problems down the line, but I have taken out the LSD and sent it off for build and extra plates to be fitted. I send just the LSD and crown wheel rather than the come unit including the casing and axles and tubes, etc. I was hoping that it should just slot back into the casing but I worried I may need to do some sort of pre-loading. Is this the case. The pinion is tight and has not been touch at all.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Chris

LSD

If you haven`t changed bearings it should fit just as it was.

Hey Chris,
I am about to embark on something similar - bought a Quaife LSD centre and will have it fitted, but planning on pulling the diff out myself and send it off. Did you....

- just drop the whole rear end, or separate the trailing arms from the axle leaving the arms fitted to the car? The manual shows some interesting special tools
- remove the driveshafts with a puller or did the tapping with a hammer method work?
- remove both axle tubes or leave the one with the bearing on?

Sorry if these may be stupid questions. Ive only worked on independent rear ends in the past....

thanks, andrew

Sure no worries.
I purchased the whole rear LSD axle so was off the car.
Drive shafts just tapped out with a mallet and bar
Remove both axle tube. So could be cleaned and painted.

Quaif?

For what rear end? Small 101/105 version? 0r the larger 2 liter 115 version that had factory LSD?

The technical dimensions of those I obtained would not fit the later unit.

Hey Richard - yes, small 105 rear end (S2 Spider Junior), no factory LSD. AH sells them for both large and small however.
