Hey guys went to change my gear set back to the original 2.92 and can't get any load on the pinion bearings. The car is a 1977 te cortina with a 0578 housing. In this housing Iv had 2.92, 3.23, 3.45 and 3.7 in it at some stage or another through different engine combinations. The original gear set is the 2.92 the same set I'm trying to refit and doesn't have a collapsible spacer like the later diffs, it has a shim. I removed the bearings from it along time ago and suspect there should be a another shim under the main pinion bearing. Can anyone confirm this. All the other gears I have changed used have been from e series cars and use a collapsible spacer.
Just wondering what major modifications are involved in fitting a turbo 4L SOHC into a td corty engine bay (firewall, heater box, trans tunnel, sump etc etc.) Also, is there any difference between the trans tunnels on a manual vs auto TD in terms of fitting a C4? If it has been covered before could someone point me to where? Thanks .
Just seeing if anyone has any experience with putting a T5 on a 2L pinto engine? Can't really seem to find any solid info on the conversion. Trying to see if it's a bigger hassle than it's worth or not. If there's an easier suggestion i'm open to it as well just have a spare T5 handy is all. Cheers!
