Well if you're pulling half shafts you might as well slip a LSD in too....

Well, I am wondering about changing the diff...

 

With the heavy duty Cortina axle it's basically an Atlas unit in a different casing. So a diff from a Capri should fit, and if I got one from a 2.8 it would give me a 3.09:1 final drive ratio instead of the 3.44:1 I have currently. Would make for more relaxed cruising, and make first gear more usable - at the moment I mostly pull away in second as the 2wd R380 'box is designed for a van and hence quite low geared. LSD would be the icing on the cake!

Yes, and I can well imagine how much they go for given old Ford scene tax!
