    Hi, does anyone have any guides or pages from a Haynes manual that covers the 2.8 axle with the lsd in it? Looking at a rebuild and need the torques and how to's.

    Thanks

    I couldnt find any useful information on how to rebuild a diff when i was looking. The advice seemed to be to either replace with a good 2nd hand axle or find a transmission specialist withe the tools and measuring equipment to handle it.

    Yea I found little info when searching, I looked in one Haynes for a 4 pot car and it showed strip and rebuild in there, so I bought a manual for a 6 pot and it all seems to be in there.

    A work colleague does stuff like this a lot and has done in the past so he knows how to do the job, just not done an atlas in a while. I'm sure we will manage together though.

    Edd China rebuilt/fitted a diff on an episode of wheeler dealers. I think it was the episode with the Mk2 Escort they prepared as a rally car. Edd bench fitted the lsd and went through a short tech session, may be on You Tube and may/may not be worth a look.
