Correct part and easy install into rear of a 101.
If you can afford it , do it as they are very very worth while and put the 101 on a whole new level for off road work.

Agree with Ron here - big difference in off road performance. I find also it makes coming down steep rough hills a lot safer - none of that bouncing as the wheels skid and then bite!

Correct part number and a good price - just done a quick search and they normal sell for $200 more than this one.

Yes you need to be aware of this although more often than not stuff like this gets through without being charged.
However not always - when I bought my Detroit years ago, it arrived quickly with no sign of having been touched by customs. Despite this, about six weeks later I got a bill for about fifty quid from C&E for import charges.

Makes it easier to get past SWMBO if the bills don't come all at once :wink:

There has been a lot of negative comments recently about detroit lockers failing. Is this true or just a few bad ones?

You should be aware that the picture is not of a 101 Detroit locker.
101 version just replaces the spur gears inside the housing.
This means you don't have to swap over the crown ring gear and, as it's lighter, you pay less postage!

Yes, the whole Diff comes out, well apart from the pinion, ideally with the use of a case spreader.

Then you split the casing and discard the inners, well keep them in a safe place. Fit the ready assembled Detroit inners, torque the casing bolts.

Remove the wingnut and bolt, that hold all the springs and things of the Detroit together, when it is not in a casing.

Refit the Diff (this could be fun without the proper case spreader, I have not done it without the correct tools but many have).

Test as per supplied instructions.

Be very impressed how well it works!

James

P.s. Obviously you will have to pull the half shafts partly out to remove the Diff, so fully withdraw them to inspect and de-burr the splines.
The two halves of the Detroit slide outwards along the half shaft splines in operation. If they stick, it won't work.

Really???
I have to say I have never heard anything bad about Detroits in 101s and never heard of one failing.

BTW when James says 'case spreader' he actually means 'piece of scaffolding tube' which is in fact the special tool needed to get the diff out.

No I have the correct tool.

Andreas and several cups of tea was not an option as you, or someone else who will remain nameless, broke a half-shaft and the steering box, of your 101, in the middle of a quarry during a thunderstorm!

This resulted in said Captain B. being unavailable, as he was helping fix The Beast.

I've heard of others using tyre levers etc, but I changed the bearings, crown wheel and pinion at the same time. The whole lot had to come out several times, so I did it properly.

Actually you are probably right. I did in fact use an 'Andreas' to get the diff out, fit the Detroit and put the diff back in.
Best method by far!
