    Vlad, you probably have a Sierra Diff with the ZF plate type LSD. Tom

    Rocky Mountain Caterham was very helpful. Josh has a hearing impairment that makes e-mail a better option for him. They have a lot of diff parts in stock. I talked to Ross, Josh's father.

    There's also Burton Power in the UK.

    Amazingly, Burt, my diff guy, was able to order all that was needed from his usual supplier. He uses an old transmission casing for his mailbox!

    Burt was unable to get the right parts for the pinion gear in my diff. He had to send some stuff back to Burton in England. It's the Ford Sierra diff, built by Quaife. Burt had a very low opinion of the way it was set up.

    I might end up buying a new diff., having Burt take it apart to be sure it's properly assembled and then install in my car.

    I'd be interested in his comments on the setup if he's willing to share 'em.

    I don't think he had ever seen a 7" Ford diff. He did admire the car, even though he was about 200 lbs too heavy to get in it.
