Hey guys, New to the forum so just a lil info about me; have a 1983 KE70 wagon, standard 4k with a 5spd k50 box. Diffs been welded since before I got the car and whilst the welds have lasted well over a year, they recently decided to break on me! Now I'm in the market for a new diff centre. Now I'm not going to lie I don't know a lot about ke70s, and I'm really not sure what diff I have or what diff will fit. I just want another centre that will slot straight in. From opening up the back cover I saw some markings that said 4.11 on the diff so I'm assuming that's the ratio. One of my mates said he thinks Toyota Corona centres should slot straight in? I can find a corona centre very easily, struggling a little with a KE centre. So whats the deal, anyone know what diff centre I need, what will work, or if a Corona centre will slot in? Cheers fellas, shahanshah
Hey guys, I'm new to this forum let alone cars in general so i apologise in advanced if my lingo sounds bad. I'm purchasing my first ke70 as a project car, the car has a locked differential (which i assume is the same as a welded differential), obviously locked differentials are illegal in victoria however if i were to register this car how easy would it be to swap a differential to make it roadworthy? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Hey guys, I've been reading a lot of the posts on here and this site has been extremely helpful for me during my build but now I'm in need of some advice. I had a R31 wagon diff housing that I have made custom mounts for and bolted it into my KE70. Fitment wise everything seems okay. The diff housing is pretty bare except for the pinion gear which was already installed. Today I tried to fit a diff centre from a R31 sedan (with a mini spool inside) but after fitting it using the spacers and bearing caps (from the same sedan diff) the diff seizes and will not rotate. If i loosen the bearing cap bolts it reduces tension and with the help of a big lever bar i can get the centre to rotate. I'm not sure if I need to adjust the pinion gear or if I put the bearing shims in the wrong way but I was hoping someone on here has a thorough understanding of overhauling differentials. Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
