Looking for a 4.4 diff or CWP

I'm looking for a 4.4 diff or CWP in good condition.

Grateful if you could contact me if you have either/both.

UK based.

Thanks.

I bought mine from TTR.
They are repros which are 'treated'.

Thanks Graeme - how did you find it - any noise problems etc?

I am going to use mine in motorsport and wonder about running in requirements.

It's done 2 seasons without any issues.
Let's face it, the db levels need to be put in context!
Eddie Thompson said that if you can get an original Ford one they may be better depending on condition, but TTR pride themselves in making well engineered stuff. I think Quaife make it for them

Quite right. Engine built to 8500 as max, but limiter set at 8250.
This is the standard racing diff in the UK which will suit most circuits except Thruxton and perhaps Goodwood.

I use the car for hill climb and sprint racing so 4.4 is a good solution.

Thanks Steve - interesting - will make some enquiries, wonder why it is being sold and will ask for more info on the condition!
