Hardy's are used by a lot of classic and historic racers (implying they are OK) - but I believe they charge top dollar....

just remembered, Heathrow Transmissions do diffs as well as gearboxes. Gary and his son Peter certainly do excellent work on gearboxes in my own experience and they are competitively priced, in part due to being small with low overheads I guess.

I had a recon diff from Heathrow, exchanged a 4,11 for a 3,89 - no problems with it at all.

Just so that persons do not go looking for the Minor/MG diff ratios quoted above here is the official BMC diff ratio print out taken from the BMC/BL Special Tuning pamphlet.
BMC did make some special one offs for racing but they are rare and very expensive.

Oh dear - where did I get 4,11 from in my tired head? :(

It was of course, a standard 4,22 from a 1098 Traveller.

Good question - it was 2 or 3 years ago now. But they advertise in ebay. As least they used to, I just had a look and did not see anything offered. I found it ! In feb 2017 I paid approx GBP390 for it ex-works, with new crown wheel and pinion. The recon version was cheaper I seem to remember.
