Talking about diffs in another thread.

How do you tell the difference between a Borg Warner diff and a Salisbury diff??

Which one is stronger?

I am thinking about rebuilding one for my VK.

Thanks

Right going on your details in the top right its an 85 VK. So it should have a Borg Warner diff.
This pic here is a 6 cylinder 8 bolt Salisbury.

The difference is the cover plate, the Sals is more rounded edges, the B/W is more hexagon shape.
Also the B/W diffs are a lot stronger, better for parts. The Sals diff parts are very hard to come by these days.
