Diffs and how they work

Despite the somewhat dated presentation... this is actually quite a good way of explaining the inner workings of a diff...

not long after i got my series 2 - i looked at pictures of how they worked and just couldnt figure it out.

drove me so mad that in a way i was thankful Graeme snapped a halfshaft at weardale, so i had an excuse to pull the diff out and see how it worked in the flesh.
:oops: my sadness knows no bounds...........
Bugger!
Another bloody dent...

Nick, if you'd popped into Neils Autos on Millenium Way on your way past over Christmas, you'd have seen not only rear diff but most of the drivetrain on my 90 in pieces :lol:
