New Diff for the 6pAc mobile...

Well it has finally happened, im sick off pussbo starts so i went and orded me a diff, a 3.7 ratio limited slip to be more precise. It should all arrive today so as soon as it is in we shall have to let the games begin with a trip to the strip. Does anyone reakon it is worth getting the electronic modulator box thing or just the closest speedo gear i can get from ford?

good work 6pac with the diff!!! Personally i would get the correct speedo gears, i know it would prolly be expensive, but in the end you will go crazy not having it accurate

Re: New Diff for the 6pAc mobile...

ford only make spedo gears up to 3.45:1. For 3.7/3.89/4.11 you will need to get a spedo modulation box aprox $250.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

6pac how much have the parts set you back, I am guessing a complete diff swap is being performed.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: New Diff for the 6pAc mobile...

Hi all, im just replacing the guts of the thing with a 30 km old LSD out of an SS commodore (he had minispool installed, damn 28 spline diffs are hard to find) The diff was going to cost 330(25spline) then 440(reco 28) or new 680, then i found the near new one for 550. The gearset was 330 I think it may have been 220.

Re: New Diff for the 6pAc mobile...

What shop is doing the diff conversion? Did you have a single spinner diff originally? Will it effect the ABS (if you have it)?

1965 XP Falcon sedan (soon to be a 250 crossflow and T5)
1986 XF Spac Sedan, EFI, T5, lowered, with a few more mods to come.

HSV.ETA - I am sure 6pac would have had a 3.08:1 single spinner, with ABS.

I take it they will transfer the ABS rotars over, so it still has ABS

The guts are being changed not the whole diff so yes ABS will be preserved and not serve as a problem.

Why would he need to buy a correction box?
he wants a 3.7, and you said yourseld Ford sell a gear for a 3.7.

I got my gear from ford, they only cost betwen $5 and $15.
