Ball diff help

Post by vwjuice » Sun Dec 23, 2012 3:38 am

I don't have the directions for the ball diff. Which way does the diff mount in the gear box?

The wide side without the gear goes into the wide side of the gearbox.
If you try to put it in wrong, the gears would keep it from going in far enough to close the gear case.

Personally I like mine dry with maybe a little lube, but that's about it. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:




On a serious note, I use Team Associated diff lube. It works really well.

As long as you use one of the big guys products you'll be good. I prefer Associated just because it seems to be the easiest to find.
