In Topic: Info: 108Mm Lobro "cosworth" 2Wd Drive Shafts For Cosworth Lsd

22 September 2017 - 09:43 PM

Sorry for the delay, I'm using a 1999 W210 E300 Turbodiesel Diff, It doesn't fit the subframe, it needs the sierra subframe diff bracket trimming slightly,  going to have to make some sort of modified mounting, I'll take some photos!  It will be something welded to the sierra tube / original bracket I suspect.


The merc diff has 2 large bolts (looked like m14/m16!) on the rear casing and a thinner, maybe m10/m12  vertical mounting at the front of the diff. Swapping it on the advice of a friend who has built a few vehicles with such engines and his friend has broken a few sierra diffs in one vehicle! Although given the weight of the RH perhaps it wouldn't have been a problem, but.... whilst it's in bits, why not?! 


The 108mm shafts are from the sierra cosworth 2wd, but they fit my application :)


I'll keep everyone up to date, hoping to crack on with it in the next week, got to get a weatherproof workspace set up for winter!

So are these too short for your application, how do they not fit, do the bolts fit? Sorry for all the questions!

I know it's a pain, but is there any chance you could count the number of splines on each end? Also do you know what length both of them are?


I don't have an old one to go from either, it's a right carry on! But I know i need some my original length but 108mm rather than the 100mm i've got Who'd think there are so many combinations?

What's the difference between cosworth and the ones you have for sale?

In Topic: New Led Street Lights

One of my dislikes too, along with emergency services blue coloured christmas lights (that'll be here soon) and flashy blue and red shop open signs.


My eyes seem pretty sensitive to flickering too, and that causes tail lights and brake lights that are PWM dimmed to jump around, especially when moving my eyes to the mirrors (also ruins the experience of my friends home cinema, as it's all rainbows) makes driving a pain sometimes. 


The blue christmas lights were bound to happen as blue LED's became cheaper i guess, but white street lights surely can only be a design feature, and surely they must be approved / selected for their use.... some amber in there would change the colour a bit, haven't they seen philips hue etc!!!?
