Hi guys,

My mk3 spit's diff is really whiny so I've bought one to rebuild of ebay. I'm looking for a recommended company to undertake the recon.

All suggestions welcome.

Cheers,

Ross

I've never done a Triumph one, but have rebuilt 3 (of different ratios) for the Sprite, its not that difficult to do once you get your head around it. If you fancy having a go yourself i could help with a few links.

Mike papworth has an enviable reputation. Probably available cheaper elsewhere, but riskier.
trouble is, with a used crownwheel and pinion it is not always possible to build a silent diff. However, shouldn't be too loud if set up correctly. I know a local chap and he talked me through how to do it. Sounds easy when said quickly over a pint

They whine when the case hardening has worn through and no amount of setting up will solve that problem.

Quoted from John Bonnett

Yes, true if its worn out, but new bearings, shim & thrust washers can make a huge difference, the critical bit is the pinion preload setting, but you can make a tool for that for about 1p, heres a picture of my expensive 1-10lb/ft torque wrench, patent pending
