    Hi

    I have an 1988 AW11 unmodified at the moment, blacktop soon, and on a tight budget...

    If I'm not wanting to go 6 speed just yet and if I have a good C52 and a good Torsen LSD (some people say helical?) out of a UK Roadster plus the ring gear (some people say crown wheel?) off a C60 - because the PCD on the C52 ring gear is different - then can I just get away with not replacing any bearings, synchros and seals?

    I know I will have to seal the major housings with Three Bond (1281) sealant (PN: 08826–00090) or equivalent (what sealant do you use, is there a something cheaper/better?).

    Also, I know I will have to check and perhaps adjust preload on the LSD as per Paul's wonderful instructions:
    Shim Part Numbers:
    AA 2.10mm 90564-41014
    BB 2.15mm 90564-41015
    CC 2.20mm 90564-41016
    DD 2.25mm 90564-41017
    EE 2.30mm 90564-41018
    FF 2.35mm 90564-41019
    GG 2.40mm 90564-41020
    HH 2.45mm 90564-41021
    JJ 2.50mm 90564-41022
    KK 2.55mm 90564-41023
    LL 2.60mm 90564-41024
    MM 2.65mm 90564-41025

    Woops, I nearly forgot I will need a set of mk2/SW20 n/a 91+ non-abs driveshafts for the 'new' LSD.

    Anything else I need to consider?

    Thanks!
    Steve

    P.S. If I purchase a s/h Roadster LSD (with crown wheel), will that crown wheel be suitable or the crown wheel must be from a C60? (what box is the Roadster??? :-) )
    Thanks!

    Paul can build you a six speed mk1b box to fit the mk1 a engine but you can't use the mk1a gearbox casing.

    Another one of our famous 6 speed conversion gearboxes bolted to its plinth ready for boxing, this one has our LSD mod too and is going to Australia.
