    Wheels are offset?

    I've had this problem on an xf Ute, just how it was built is the conclusion I came to. You don't notice it till you fit wheels that struggle to fit under the guards. Also had similar issues on the front.

    XD Toploader

    I bought a ex cop xd 20+ years ago from a car yard, I was 17 at the time. It had a top loader and 9" wouldn't have a clue if it was factory. Really should of kept that one. I know the guy who owns it now but haven't seen him in years.

    can anyone id this diff?

    I think you will find the offset from the bearing to flange is different, I'd guess around 15mm. The flange would foul on the drum brake internals, I could be wrong.

    can anyone id this diff?

    Its like the game guess who. Dose your diff have solid disks? Yes. Is your diff a EA/EB wagon diff? Flips down picture.

    Toploader shifter issues

    The best way to eliminate top loaders poor shifting issues is to replace it with a Borg Warner. I've never had a top loader that liked to shift gears quickly. I snapped part of the shifter mount on one years ago trying to force it throu3the gears. After that went auto, never looked back but yeah I didn't really answer any of your questions did I.

    Strange Mercury Silver

    I know a guy with a blue el has the same affect, looks pinky, purply. I've also seen another blue el like this. I just assume it had had a fancy coat painted over the base colour, maybe as a dealer option?

    Bw35-40 differences

    Cheers guys, that clears up my confusion. About 20years ago I swapped a 40 from an xf in to an xr, I need to used the xf tail shaft, because from memory the 35 was shorter, but pretty sure I read somewhere else that 35 and 40 were same, so yeah confused about why I had to use the xf tail shaft. With the corty tail shaft i was worried about the length.

    Bw35-40 differences

    Now that I think about it, I think I'm wrong and that the xmember mount is further back but the overall lengths are the same. If anyone could confirm or tell me different would be great

    Bw35-40 differences

    Hi all, I think i vaguely remember that the 35 was shorter then the 40. I'm I right or wrong? And dose anyone know what year ford changed from 35 to 40. I need a trans for a corty, I'm sure they had 35s, don't want to get a 40 and the tail shaft doesn't work. Cheers
