Thanks Dunk for keeping your eyes peeled.
Don’t look too bad but asking price, IMO, is a little high considering they’re used.
As they’re 7.5” they might look good on the rear but too wide for front.

New manifold is coming along nicely.
Makes the old one look quite puny.!

What was wrong with the old one? Looks pretty good to me, as it was...

Top manifold is our standard unit good for 200bhp n/a or 350bhp charged. This is going on Adams new engine so needs 2" primaries.

PU's Rear Axle is also receiving some attention/Upgrade.

New Upgraded Half Shafts and Hubs. LSD has been sent off to Quaife for modification to 18 Spline. (Nice to discover when you buy a Quaife Diff it comes with a lifetime guarantee.)

Evening Dunk,

Quaife diff is ATB. They're pretty sturdy diffs and for what I do is fine.
When I've saved enough spon-doolies for a Baby Atlas Axle it might be a different story.! But then again, with these half shafts and current set I'm not expecting to be upgrading this item again.
If I could get my hands on a Plated Diff I wouldn't say 'No' so if you hear of one think of me.

Think I wish I went for atb,my plated diff makes some loud noises,clunking,I always get people coming over saying They think my axles broke,but I have to explain that’s the plated diff ,I’ve got some oil modifier,hoping that it may let plates slip bit more quieter

I have to say I get people making similar comments about the noise coming from my gearbox when just trundling along.

I have a spare ATB. ;)

I have had the same floating shafts and diff in my Morris since about 1991, haven't broken either with over 400 bhp and a lot of full bore launches although the diff struggled a lot and will only work if both rear wheels are properly in contact with the road..

I have had issues with oil leaks from the hubs though, I always felt the O rings were too small, also oil can come out around the nut that holds the half shaft in the flange. Mind you I doubt you will be pulling over 1G cornering though ;)
