I’m building up a good stock of parts for when I can seriously start working on the Mantula again. Today I bought a new differential from Quaife. Although the casing is reconditioned, all other parts are brand new. This should last for years – hopefully fit-and-forget.
The Quaife limited slip diff is a special version for lighter cars. According to Quaife the weight of a car has a big effect on the way the the LSD works. The standard unit was designed to work well in a fully laden Ford Sierra, so it’s no surprise that the much lighter Marcos would need a different set-up.
I’ll try to add a few more posts in the next few days. Plenty of interesting stuff to tell you about.
