    Yeah great read Cal and good to see some real fun going on. I need to come over when you get the Mi back and get that Si rack off you.

    Got back on the 404 this afternoon for a couple hours after work.
    I got a good rear end a little while back and had a look at options this evening, I was hoping to just swap across the brakes, but it seems it is from a later model and is larger, it also has what looks to be a bias valve that my car does not.
    Wondering now weather to swap across the whole axle, or just the brakes.
    While I was at it, I have pulled a stub axle to see how it all goes together, the bearing is tight and good but there was oil leaking out, I assume the bearing needs to come away to change the shaft seal? And are they still available?

    The diff won't fit your car, the bolt spacing and size on the front is wrong for your torque tube. Do you have the torque tube that comes with the new diff? You can buy axle seals anywhere, need to pull the bearing off with a puller , also replace the shrink ring. Doesn't look too bad maybe just clean up, there is a special hole for oil to escape. I may have a late torque tube available or even an early diff although they probably went with the 403 parts clean out. 203 clean out happens now that the 203 has gone, will now just concentrate on the 404 for my early car.

    No tube for the new diff, though my original one seems to be fine anyways.

    Back to sourcing wheel cylinders and using all the original rear end, must need a unique puller to get the bearing off? i hate to pull it all apart but the seal is leaking pretty badly.

    A couple of little teasers, both have had little hold ups but stoked to see the 205 back on its wheels and the 505 officially turbocharged

    Nice work... I have been wondering what thoughts Bill has to offer on the Douvrin, now that he has built a hot one.

    Not as much as I do Beano.............'Cecil' my '84 STi seems to specialise in them despite new gaskets hither & yon. Would love to have Cal's hardware under the bonnet!

    Ya gotta track em down and kill em, dude !

    Degrease and find some, then fix.

    When more oil appears, degrease again and after driving a day or two, look with a torch at night....it reveals much more than during day.

    Using gasket-grade silicone with every gasket helps, too.
