Ah yes, of course - I was forgetting that part of its job! So anyway - still think it's revving too high and I seem to have the correct box and diff in so I will try to rig uo a rev counter and see what it actually is doing.... or maybe its been too long since I drove an old car and am forgetting wh...

OK, so now I'm confused!!! Filler is on the diff casing at the rear - not on the diff itself... I marked the prop and the wheel and carefully counted the number of turns and for 8 full wheel revs I got 17 turns of the prop - so that makes it something like a 2.22:1 ratio (I think not). So I guess I'...

Maybe we should start an exclusive relatives club :-) Not far from either of "Jenny's" cousins here in Nuneaton !!!

Thanks Ray for the ratio advice - so, I guess my next question is.... Does any one have a decent 4.22 or 3.9 diff going spare and just begging to be used?

Fingers crossed :wink:

Thanks Guys and Hi to Phoebe :-) I've had a look and if I'm looking at the right things it does look like the gearbox casing is ribbed, so its just a diff change needed. Any one have any experience / thoughts on a 3.9 or 3.7 diff?? I think I'll drop the sump off and have a good look around and see i...

New Purchase Advice Pls

Hi All Just purchased an early 60's Minor 1000 which has been fitted with a 1098 motor and I have a couple of questions.... Firstly, at an indicated 50mph it sounds like its revving very high. What would be my diff ratio (assuming its not been changed) and what would be my best option to change it t...
