    Default What's the difference?

    Hey lads, what's the difference between the 6cyl banjo diff and the V8 banjo diff?
    I have a 253 that I want to put in my 6cyl HG, but not sure if the 6cyl diff will be ok

    Hi
    There was fine & coarse spline ??
    Then there is LSD
    All above doesn`t come to much Holden struggled to be average in the diff dept for a production car .

    Even the 10bolt Salisbury I have seen described as only handling 300hp under abusive conditions . The LSD stop working long b4 destruction.

    So if I put a V8 yoke onto my 6cyl banjo, I should be ok?
    It's only for cruising. No burnouts or hard treatment. And I only have a 253 with flat tops, detractors and a Rochestor

    HI
    Should be ok with no abuse . Don't forget its used as well with xxxxxx miles so probably only in fair condition .

    Whats the ratio 3.08? but probably a 3.36
    Manual 3-4 spd or auto [2 or 3 speed power glide/trimatic ]

    336 ratio. I was going to put new bearings in it.
    Not sure of gearbox yet, maybe a 3 speed manual or celica 5 speed

    ... the circuit racing guys had no problems with the GMH 10bolt Salisbury in racing conditions
    yeah.... fitted with Detroit lockers and oil coolers but the rest was factory and they were shoving 400+ hp thru them

    this from underneath the Bob Jane T Marts Group C race car

    yeah.. the small salisbury shares stuff from the banjo.
    banjos are two piece, centres can come out all together with just bolting off.. banjo centre removes through the front, salisbury are one piece.. has a bolt on cover plate on the rear.
    lol i havnt dealt with these diffs in years.

    HI
    Buggered axles ,diff centre gears ,LSD failures . All this from all the apprentices in heavier HQ-HZ back in the very early eighties . Also while shopping for a current diff seen a few pics of stuffed Salisbury rears behind serious Torque . The big block HZ I bought my 10 bolt LSD disc to disc from was his 2nd or 3rd diff . Only mild cam extractors etc .

    The cost of custom axles and Tru Track to invest into a diff with a housing of average strength [supposedly not repairable] and costly gear sets left me with no other option .

    Personal choice I guess .Salisbury are fine for many probably 8-9 outa 10 I,m guessing . With no burnouts and doughnuts they will last a while with moderate hp.
    End of the day a better choice than banjo .

    Is it the last solid axle rear commodores BW??? run a stout diff . Way Cheaper than a 9 inch and available parts /ratios . For an economical common conversion this is an option.

    sure 9" are getting more expensive as there aren't many just lying around anymore,, and sure salisburys are better than banjo's by a lot. and they are ok for many applications.. but if one sees any drag racing in their future a 9'' is almost mandatory for any reasonable v8. Sticky tyres and tracks with good torque is death to most.,, for drag racing I have never known anyone to change from a 9'',,, My thought is how many 'cheap'' diffs do you have to break before it becomes expensive?
