welding a stock carrier

Thinking about it.

The ENVs I had lined up got sold so the series needs some more love (ie parts)

Disco 24 spline carrier staring at me and someone said they have a ring gear spacer (way I PMed ya).

Some 24 spline ashcrofts and some 24 spline FWH and I am in business.

Probably can get the cash for the 24 spline FWHs and ashcrofts from the salvage on my 10 spline GBRs and warn FWHs

The rig is 99% offroad and is "only" on 7.50x16 SAGs. Do you think it will hold?

I want to put the ARB in front so I would be lincoln locked in the back and ARB up front in a pretty much stock Series II.

can you say sleeper

what do you think?

Ron

PS I have way to many rovers and WAY too many projects going on

It'll work for a while
I've never welded any diff before but if you could somehow get some more attachment besides the single pinion then it would hold up longer. I think the risk part is you'll likely loose the R&P when the thing breaks. You've probally got a few sets of series gears sitting around.

I have spares. I have series 4.7s and I have been trying to sell the stock disco carrier for $50 and no one wants it.

How would the gurus weld it? I am thinking about using the fill it with weld idea rather than weld the spiders technique.

What rod do you think? Heat setting?

I am a DAN

I've got a buch of those crap carriers hanging around the shop...I couln't imagine anyone wanting to use those carriers in an OPEN configuration much less welded. I mean shiat...I, and a lot of others, have broken the things open with street driving only.
