I don't read cyrillic, not even kinda, but I don't think he made a locker. It looks more to me like he swapped out the internals of his locker for one with a lower number of thicker castellations. If I had to guess those parts probably came from a heavier duty series rear end from the same manufacturer.

I bet those narrow straight cut gears howl louder than a M998.

I doubt the gears howl at all considering the low rpm they are operating at. My own self made portals, using series LandRover straight cut transfercase gears don't make any discernable noise or generate heat at highway speeds or in low range conditions. The Lada Niva of which the featured rig is based on is not available with difflocks and has a very compact differential which appears to be what the pictured difflock is made for.It would be quite difficult to machine down a carrier from a larger rig to suit.

Moved back out to my bushblock still in Vic.Slowly re establishing after everything getting burnt in the black saturday bushfires in February.Still have and occasionally use the rig as a tractor around the property. getting a bit hard to get in and out of and heavy for me to operate, so not a daily driver anymore.Might have to move up to the warm sunny Gold Coast now that global warming has been revealed to be a swindle.

This forum is Bulgarian, and the language is Bulgarian aswell. The portals and the vehicle are Russian. And yes, the guy has lockers made by himself too.
The thread is not very informative, just some coments about; if s/o is interested I can translate it (as I am lucky enoght to speak/read those languages plus few more).

Excellant, Are you able decipher where the builder sourced the gears from. Some of the photos show a transfercase or two.

Unfortunatelly the above thread did not mention anything about the parts source. The only thing mentioned is
Quote:
Всички части в редукторите са серийно производство и не е проблем ако някога нещо се строши да се намери-понеже зъбчни колела и други са от масови Руски машини
- All the parts used in the reductors are of series/commercial production and it is not a problem if sometime something brokes to be sourced - becausse the gears used and others are from mass produced Russian machinery.

Not really informative. If you can find the original Russian forum thread I will be able to get more info.

The vehicle manufacturer is called VAZ and they producce the small trucklike crosover called Lada Niva or Cossac. They never come with any kind of diff locker; also there is no heavier duty series of the vehicle in question from this manufacturer.

The locker design reminds me the G wagen one.

Hi Mate,
Congratulations, you have done what many (me included) only dream of.

Am I right in thinking that you have a Central tyre inflation system? If so how did you run it thou the portal?
Also what are the gears from? I have looked at some David Brown tractors but they are typically to big or to small.

Hi!

Yes, I have central tyre inflation system, it made very simple. I use 6mm poliurethan tube полиуретановую a tube 6мм on the portal box and valve seal pressed on a rotate part of a hub wheel.

On the next modification I used usual cuff instead of the valve seal.

I used custom gears because to fabricate new gears is more simple than to adapt serial one.

Some photos about rebuild rear portal box.
