View attachment 228846View attachment 228847Just a few updated pics. Gee it’s hard to hold back. Lol.

the diff is a bit sloppy. Any economical suggestions or upgrades without changing stud patterns or width?
From memory they used to run banjos out of EJ through to HR with these....Seeing you have an HR front end, the stud pattern will be the same, meaning you can upgrade to 14" wheels from an HK through to HG or 15" wheels from a Volvo...

Do you recon this is the factory diff?

Our VK 10 bolt Salisbury has a diff housing stamp for year of manufacture and it was the year before the VK model came out, the VK was last car to use the 10 bolt/8 bolt Salisbury before changing to BW
So going from that maybe .... Your old earlier Banjo diff housing stamp in picture is 1557 (casting code) should be diff was manufactured 1st of May 1957
