I have a Ford Granada diff that has a leaking output shaft oil seal and the backlash is considerable.
How difficult is it to strip and rebuild a diff?
I've read other threads and it seems like a black art yet Summit sell overhaul kits for American diffs with full rebuild instructions so how difficult can it be?
Assuming that it is possible to rebuild it can anyone tell me where I can get a rebuid/overhaul kit.
Thanks,
Harry

Try your local Autofactors

Mine surprise me at all opportunities.

Harry,

Diffs are easy enough to re-build if

A) you know what you're doing

B) You've got the right tools

And finally, having the bits.

If there is a transmission specialist near you they will have the bits or should be able to get them for you. JW engineering in Barnehurst Kent got all mine for me.
