Diffs and things

PostPost by: vernon.taylor » Sun Feb 26, 2012 6:01 pm

Salut

I'm planning to fit a 3.54 diff and I came across this on eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/300669414112?ss ... _500wt_949

The guy has them in 22,23 and 25 teeth, I think.

Three questions, if I may:

1) I have a standard 3.77 - how many teeth do I need for a 3.54?
2) Wishful thinking - can it be fitted without removing and dismantling the 'box
3) Is this an opportunity, or are the bits easy to find?

Merci et @+

Vernon
