    I'm not Italian but I think it says

    “We inform you that the chamfer is required for increasing the comfort while braking.
    It is not related to a change in performance or early pads wear.”

    In theory, the helical (AKA Torsen) diff should give a nicer drive - no induced understeer and no lockup. I haven't driven one so I don't know in practice.

    Ah! a cable operated clutch. Lengthening the actuator arm will make the clutch lighter but it will also reduce the travel. This may be your problem.

    Really need a bit more info about the set-up that you have. There is no 'right' combination of parts for a custom driveline like yours. Either:

    I made a very similar press tool when I was doing the headers for mine. Looks like the corner radius is a little 'kinder' on the small block Chev

    The first simple test is to buy a length of hose and attach the servo to another car - see it the brakes feel any different.

    Many diesel cars have a vacuum pump built into the alternator; so there's another idea.

    A hydraulic release bearing itself will not make any difference; it's purely down to the ratio (area) between the two cylinders whatever shape they might be. If the HRB happens to have a greater...

    I can't see why warming the brake fluid up by a few degrees would cause the brake fade that you are seeing. Maybe it's a symptom of air in the system?

    The diff may appear locked because of the preload; you'd need a decent size bar on it to get it to shift, particularly on the bench.

    You can get the diff re-ratioed to a higher ratio such as 3.07...

    Not sure I fully understand the question. Sounds like the ones you have are 7/16" so they must have used both sizes over the years. Maybe the smaller ones under a lighter car. I presume you would...

    You don't need the header tank to be at the highest point, you just need the filler to be there along with a take-off for the pipe to the header which can then be anywhere you like.

    This is expected behaviour for an LSD - the diff locks, the tyres break traction and you (probably) get some oversteer; it's not related to preload. Or did I miss your point?
