hey guys,

ok, the rhumor i heard...
"the diff gears in the automatic nissan pintara are always either 3.9, or 4.11..... and that they fit straight into the diff of a VH commodore."

now, question 1 is, would i have a sailsbury, or a borg warner? its a discs rear end 253, non lsd.

and secondly, is the rhumor true?

and thirdly, has anyone done this?

cheers

Yeah early skylines, falcons etc all had a 78 series borgwarner diff, crown & pinion will bolt into a commodore, you just need to check axel splines. Most run a 25spline diff centre which will slot straight into a standard borgwarner diff. the 25 pline LSD centres are a 2pinion LSD which are still pretty good but there is as usual something better. If you get a 28 spline centre out of a VL diff or VN-VS it runs a 4 pinion LSD centre and is much stronger even the IRS still run the same centre. But you will need to get yourself a pair of axels to suit your diff housing thats where it will get expensive. up to $600 kind of expensive.

Oh an yes i have play with a diff from an early skyline that had 3.9 gears.

cheers

so before i can swap the centres around, from my diff to a pintara diff, i need a borgwarner diff?

whats the best way for me to do all this? ie, wreckers, and take a borgwarner diff, and a pintara diff?

also, are the axles different in the borgwarner compared to the sals that i have?

thanks for the help

You wouldnt be the bloke asking the same thing on SC would ya??
You need the Borgwarner housing and axles from a VL turbo or V8 commodore, and a Borgwarner center from a pintara or skyline.
