I have a H260 diff from a 1983 Safari\MQ bakkie that will be going into the Sani as soon as I can get it "fixed".
I have not stripped it yet, but the most obvious problem at the moment, is the oil that runs out liberally through the pinion seal. The cover plate is also going to be needing some attention as it is fairly well bent out of shape.
Here is my questions...
Anybody know where I can get the oil seal? I have not looked further than Nissan themselves, and Autozone so far. Neither of them can help me.
Second, do you have to access, and hence replace the pinion crush washer?
I can't find too much info on the diff and how it all goes together. I downloaded a small picture from Google, abut I can't see too much on it.
This diff is the next stage of my SFA build, along with the Safari Transfer box that does me a driver side drop of the driveshafts to front and rear. I need to know this diff is 100% before the transfer case goes in. If I have to revert to centre pumpkin, I am a bit stuffed with the transfer case I have for the project. It is also a matching 4.8 ratio to go with the C200 diff in the front.
Anybody have any documentation that can help me, and info as to where I can get my hands on the seal.
I will hopefully start taking some spanners to the diff this weekend. I want to have a look at how easy, or not, the Sani front disk brakes are going to build over to replace the drums on the H260.
