hey traincep, welcome to the forums. you're off to a great start with that reply and after reading it i had to add my two cents.
i know your mum thinks your speeecial but just to increase that factor by a fraction i thought i'd enlighten you on a few facts. allow me as part of the audience to participate.
a TD cortina diff is 1320mm from flange to flange and 1468mm from rim surface to rim surface so if u'r measuring that with only 1 drum then it's a pretty close call at 1500mm. isnt that info good enough for ya to work out if it's gonna fit under the arse of your centura or whatever it is you need it to fit into?
now i got a few questions;
do u think a cortina diff is going to "bolt straight in" into a centura without any mods?
exactly how many splines do your xw/centura axles have? how long are the axles?
what kind of borg warner diff is it? i dont know jack about centuras but i know there are a few different diffs for a cortina.
you may have the dictionary meaning for "forum" but here's the Norm meaning for "life" - you dont get real far belittling ppl who offer thier assistance and there are more diplomatic ways to get what u want in life. you made some pretty severe and innacurate assumptions and have made a prize dick of yourself - which i do happen to find mildy amusing ya tool
and likewise i mean that in the sincerest possible manner.
Well arent you the clever one Tarahymen............OH WAIT!!!!!!......I get it now LOL ROFLMAO.......Tear-a-Hymen.......and that would be just the one hymen? your own one just past your sphincter muscle at about the same time you developed your ingrown penis and slowly started to fornicate yourself into stupidity!!!!!!!!!!
Seems like your 2 cents worth is actually worth something......you gave me an accurate measurement for me to work on......SEE TD302.....that wasnt hard was it?
And no!!!! about 1500mm is not enough info to work out if its gonna fit....see now that you have helped me with those measurements I know the wheels will fit with 15mm clearance on either side instead of 3mm clearance on either side with the rough measurement ........yeh yeh yeh I know you are probably kickin yourself right about now knowing you actually helped me LOL
And dont you worry about whether its gonna bolt straight in or how long the axles are, I didnt ask any of that stuff......(glad I didnt cos I can imagine the measurments I would have gotten back)
That is my worry I just needed to know the width of the diff. OH!!!!! and for future reference: The diff would be flange to flange........not drum to drum cos ....yep you guessed it.......drum to drum would be diff ass drum to drum
Just the fact that you asked "isnt that info good enough for ya " also tells me you havent built any serious cars either. It is one thing to pay people to do things for you or to swap parts from other cars that will fit..... but to truly build a car and make all the mods yourself then have it engineered that is the meaning of building a car..........anyone can R & R and D & A.
I would be really interested in finding out what severe and inaccurate assumptions I have made I have not assumed anything I took it as fact that roughly 1500mm is not a good enough measurement to go and do what I want to do and Im sur you would have to agree after being presented with the tolerances I gave you above.
Go back to my first posting......I asked the width not for a rough measurement of the diff. Most diffs are roughly 1500mm give or take 50mm.
Therein lies the problem........what you think I havent been measureing all sorts of diffs......I just woke up one day and thought cortina after not considering anything else!!!!!!.
Now it would be my turn to accuse you of making severe and inaccurate assumptions which you have.
I stand by everthing I said in my previous post.
Watch you dont choke on that in grown hymen breaker you got there TARA
