Anybody got one lying around. I have just received my 2.88 diff and some idiot has drilled a hole in the bottom to drain the oil out.

Cheers

My 2 cents worth... My diff also has a smal hole. In there goes the breather pipe...:???:

The breather pipe is at the top of the cover, this hole is just above the bottom bolt. The diff takes about 1.5 lires of oil with this hole you would be lucky to get a 1/2 pint in it without it peeing out.

Wilf,

I don't have access to any welding equipment otherwise I would have done that. I will take it to a local welder if I can't get hole of one.

Or, a better thought - get hold of one of the finned ally covers that were fitted to XJS and the like. Look nice and add cooling.

I have a load of pressed steel ones in various states of rustiness, or fully re-furbished blast/powder coated ones if that helps. Don't have any aluminium ones though. PM me if that helps.

if its a gen 2 with the XJ40 diff then I have a spare knackered diff. It will be going in the next skip so you are welcome to the cover plate off it. Its even cleaned and painted up as it was in the car till I broke it!!
