Broke something in the driveline at the Oakey sprints on the weekend and the other drivers seem to think that it is either the diff or torque tube BUT I doubt it is the TT.

I could still drive it enough to get it onto the trailer accompanied with clunking noises and jerking so my money is on either the crown wheel or pinion.

 

The ratio is 3.9 and any help in locating one appreciated.

 

I still have the original open 3.5 small diff. The 3.9 is a big diff and am told that the lsd clutch pack won't fit in the small diff.

 

Have been told that some early TRITONS may have the parts I need any info on wether this is true and where to find one appreciated.

 I almost certainly will need a crown wheel and matching pinion to suit any ratio between 3.5 and 4.2  and am told that I have an 8 inch diff.

 

I will PM my contact details in case you need further info.

Diff is out and the pinion shaft has only 1/2 of the teeth left so the hunt is on for a replacement most likely a 4.222.

Have picked up a 4.222 MK Triton diff for a test fit of the internal parts and DANTRANS has done some preliminary checks and thinks that they "should fit" so fingers crossed as that will be good first hand info for other Starion enthusiasts/diehards.
