diffs (again!)

Howdy people,

Can anyone tell me if an E series diff will fit into an XE falcon? I know there are a lot of similarities i just wondered if anyone had tried it?

Cheers for the help.

Does an XF diff fit an XE ?
Does an EA diff fit an XF?
Does an EB diif fit an EA?

Now someone must have some answers to help mutley out.

They're all Watt's link rear ends.

All made by BTR. So I say yes. I do know the Ea-XE-XF ranges had a traditional uni flange, vis the Eb's disc type.

See the thread on installing a VL 3.45 into a falcon by bass Crazy.

Mutley,

I have decided to ask someone on the inside at BTR to help you out, they have passed my question to engineering and I will get a reply, so straight from the horses mouth so to speak.

I have asked the below, will post response when I get it.

"BTR made the diffs for the fords, XE, XF, EA etc, can anyone in your engineering tell me if the diffs were wildly different, or if an EA diff would fit an XE."

XE (with the Coil spring rear is) is the same as XF, EA.
With the EB onward, there are small changes. Lower control arm bush is wider on the EB housing, but the bushes can be changed to suit accordingly.
Also, the connection's to the tail shaft may vary.
Everything up to EA used the old U bolt connection, but the EB onward had the 4 bolt flange connection. The easiest way to overcome this difference is to install a EB tail shaft, they range from $20-50 S/H, but is a worthwhile upgrade.

Hope this helps.

Also the brake flange on the end of the tubes (where the brake adaptor mounts) is different.. Best thing to do there is use the brakes that came with the diff.. ie, ED Diff / rear brakes, onto the XF.. hook up your handbrake, and brake lines..

And of course, as they said, the tailshaft has a different flange, and if you get a ED 4 Speed auto tailshaft, you will give yourself a bigger uprated tailshaft compared to the xf one.

And the Bottom mount bush is different..
