    Tony i would recommend Andy Robinson or Zane of Zannetec.

    Regarding the nodular housing, they are stronger but to be honest for what your doing it won't be worth the trouble or expense in my opinion, I've used ordinary 3rd members for years and never broke one.

    Steve, just thought I will have to strip the lot out to transfer the gearing, I might as well use the stronger casing??

    Oh and thanks for all the replies chaps

    Tony,

    I will put a vote in for Chris Isaccs over in Essex, set up my diffs with parts I supplied no problems.

    If you have the stronger case I would use it.

    I 'saved' some money by using a standard case and ended up lunching it at the Breakfast run a few years back.

    It cost me the price of a 9+ casing plus another new set of gears, bearings and set upcost, prop and lower control arm.

    Should have just done the right thing the first time and saved myself a Grand...

    Lesson learnt.

    P.

    Tony i was under the impression the traction lock was already built with the gears ??? If so its a straight swap.
    To use the nodular 3rd member you will have to have it all setup again, Not worth the expense in my opinion.

    A mate of mine in Camberwell does this sort of thing at reasonable rates Tony, he's built diffs & axles for the likes of the Taz Racing blokes amongst others.

    I didn't know you could gt a nodular housing for the 8", live & learn eh! Not suggesting yours is, but I've seen a few supossed nodular 9" housings that are just a stock part with a letter N mig welded on it!
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.

    Couple things - never heard of nodular case for 8". I won't come right out and say they don't exist, but I will say I doubt it.

    Next - Even if it is a complete, running T-Lok unit, if you swap it to a new case, at minimum, the backlash will need set. If not equipped to do this, send it to a pro.

    Lastly, the Nodular 9" has extra ribs. Only non-nodular 9" with extra ribs is very early "WAR" case (casting "numbers" inside case) - used '57-59 only. These are stronger than standard 9" cases, but nowhere near as strong as a nodular case. And there were indeed nodular cases w/o the "N" cast in (pre-'69).
