Grad a diff out of a TC/TD Cortina.


They are still 4 stud.


Why's that a problem though?


Ever tried to buy 4 stud mag wheels that fit ???.......a mate of mine did....there wasn't any.
And a healthy 250 Xflow will put a lot of strain on a 4 stud axle.

TC/TD/TE/TF ran the 250/4.1.

PCD is 108 by memory, pleasse correct ne if I am wrong.

This size PCD 4 stud was used on Cosworth Escorts and Sierras. Used on Focus and many others. Quite a common PCD. Many cars with 4 studs run high power.

Hey guys i was hoping i could get pointed in the right direction for a engine for my XL Falcon, ive been looking at either a 250 cross-flow or fuel injected 4.1L out of a XF Ghia or a 4.0L in-tech out of a au falcon. im looking for a fairly easy conversion but still to have an engine with a bit of balls about it. Thanks

PCD of the studs isn't the problem, it's the hole in the middle.
Early Falcons had a small hole.....up till XB....IIRC.

But talking 4 stud here. I do understand the difference with the Falcon 5 stud.

A mate of mine was doing a 65 M'stang LHD....being a 200 six 3sp manual car, he left it that way,.....as well as the 4 stud pattern (drum brakes all round).....I told him at the start to up grade to 5 stud for better brakes, and bigger choice of wheels.
He didn't listen, was cheaper to get all new 4 stud parts from the US, than to up grade.
When it came to get 4 stud mags, there was only 1 set that would fit....and as it turns out, they didn't fit the front....they were 17 x 7.....hit the upper control arm, and something else.
So, after much stuffing around, he got it converted to 5 stud, 4 wheel disc brakes, and mags that fit without hassles.
He tried his 8" diff out of the 67 'Stang LHD he has, and it didn't let the wheels fit under the guards at the back...it's wider than the 65 diff.
