Hi guys,
I checked out the tag on my diff of my SVO Fairlane NA (After scrapping the years of s**t off of it) and noticed it stated Anti Spin Diff. Is this standard to the NA Fairlanes? Is it basically an LSD?

Sorry man, no clear picture of the tag. Got a picture of the actual diff but it's the same as any old Fairlane diff, I'm told. I got my answer from a different form. Is that blasphemy?

Quote:
'Spin Resistant' they call it. It works fine with a few K's but after a few thousand K's the Spin Resistant stops working. You can get them re-shimmed to a much tighter tolerance and they work like lockers. I did it to my XR8 & my series 3 TE50

So a Spin Resistant diff is an LSD or some other design to stop the car spinning around inadvertently?

No, it uses clutches with a break pressure pre-set . So it's easy for a good diff guy to set the break pressure much higher by adding shims to increase clutch pressure/break away pressure. Easy way to check your is:
Jack the rear wheels off the ground, put car in neutral, hand brake off and get a mate to hold one wheel while you try to turn the other. If there is resistance, then the clutches are still working (but may need to be shimmed to a tighter tolerance). If there is no resistance, it will need re-shimming. The spin resistance isn't working at all.

But then, there's also this answer:

Quote:
'Anti slip' and 'spin resistant' are simply fancy names for regular, run of the mill LSD's.


Meh, I don't know. I was always planning on throwing in an EL/EF XR6 diff and hand brake anyway.
