    1. They have a nice retro look
    2. Cheap
    3. Easy to faultfind and test each circuit because you can connect the loom up one part at a time

    Either way involves cutting because the diff bolts are under the boot floor under the fuel tank. Having said that, there may be room to do it through the wheelarch once the driveshaft and (possibly)...

    I'm guessing that they have found that this design will 'wear in' to conform to the disc surface quicker if you start with a smaller area. The customer will not notice the new pads as much.

    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.

    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...
