Re: RTV Diff noises
Just got back from vehicle inspection and yes there is excessive backlash in the diff. Surprise,surprise it seems other RTV's are having the same problem too. Apparently when the diff is locked, there should be very minimum freepaly between the spider gears. Vehicle inspector wasn't sure if it can be adjusted.Im hoping that Ford can make the necessary adjustments. Changing the oil wont solve the problem either.This setup is totally different to a LSD.
Apart from that,the car drives beautifully and fuel econmy is slowly improving. I've just clocked 12,000k and got 9.2k/litre on the latest tank of fuel. Prior to that I was averaging 7.8k/litre. If it gets to about 10k/litre,I'll be happy. I'll keep the posts coming with any news about diff dramas. If any other ppl are having the same problem, send a post so we can all be grumpy together lol
