Need to know what's broken and maybe how to fix it ? Post here

Managed to source a disco rear axle from a 300Tdi to fit on my defender for the re-build and I had planned to simply swap the 3 bolt flange from the Disco diff for the 4 bolt flange on my Defender diff..........
When I removed both flanges, the disco one has a multiple (24?) splined shaft abut the Defender one is a 4 spline (effectively a 'cross'). I can't just swap the diffs over as the defender has 10 spline half-shafts and the Disco has 24 spline and I'm not even sure the half-shafts will be the same anyway (one being froma drum braked Defender and the other from a disc braked Disco). I'd rather retain the Disco diff/half-shafts anyway.
Had a quick chat with Mr White this morning (sorry it was so early Dave (10:00 ) - forgot you probably don't surface until the PM on a weekend ) who said that the very early Defenders had this 4 spline flange but later ones moved on to the 24 spline, so...............
Does anyone happen to have either a flange or a diff from a later Defender kicking about that I can use or am I going to have to go and see the nice man in the parts department at Ripon Land Rover and try to explain what I need?
I for one cant even afford to drive past ripon landrover. Why not try an independant specialist like 4 plus four in leeds?
Good luck with axles. Just about to fit some rock sliders and check levels in axles and transmission which seem to have gone up in volume over last week or so.
If it ain't broke, I'd be bloody suprised.
Dave covered this in his build, http://www.yorkshireoffroadclub.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=601&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30
if you need any help, he's ye man.
5/4 of people admit that they’re bad with fractions.
