LOCKER AVAIL FOR B/W & BTRE "TRUE"

A company in South Australia sells an auto locking diff for Borgwarner & BTR diffs.
They are similar in operation to a detroit locker.
This unit goes by the name Lockright Lokka and sells for around $600.
Here's there web site www.4wdsystems.com.au
Has anyone had experiance with this unit.I did ring this company and the guy i spoke had only good things to say. But i wanna know more .

Re: LOCKER AVAIL FOR B/W & BTRE "TRUE"

Speaking to the guy at the local 4wd place here about these centres (I was thinking about using one in my 9") and he advised that the ones they use in the 4wd's dont like a lot of power being put through them - the teeth shear off quite easily apparently...

Re: LOCKER AVAIL FOR B/W & BTRE "TRUE"

I have done a few searches on this subject, 4WD forums and so on.
Some comments have been negative, Problem' it is not clear which company they are refering to. Powertrax lockright... or ...Lockright Lokka.
The internet can be such a minefeild of misinformation.
A diff rebuiler i spoke to in Qld , who i belive has a good reputation has built a few Hilux diffs with the Lockright Lokka with no warranty problems.
He said setting the clearance's is critical to longevitey. BUT.........
I dont know any one that's used one in the venerable Borgwarner 78.(most Falcons)
Any body? or I guess my rear might be a guinea-pig.

Re: LOCKER AVAIL FOR B/W & BTRE "TRUE"

I have spoken to quite a few guys in the US who run these, and all the reports I have got are good. There was also an review article in one of the mustang mags about them, I will try to locate it again and post it. They are similar to the detroit lockers but are far quieter, and aren't as severe when locking/unlocking which is good for wet weather driving. I can't remeber the exact figure but it was something like 30% stronger than an LSD setup. I know a couple of falcons who have had them installed and I haven't heard of any problems.

Re: LOCKER AVAIL FOR B/W & BTRE "TRUE"

razz, it just occurred to me you are in QLD - give QPAAC a call, and see what they have to say - they are a major driveline supplier for Aus. I know they deal primarily with 9" stuff, but they may be able to offer some advise etc for the BW.
