    Hey all!
    My first post here.
    I have a Series 2a swb/88 1969 which I want to strengthen the driveline on. I am thinking of changing the diff to 24 splines and heavy duty half shafts as well as the flanges, all 24 splines. I think Ashcroft has these parts.
    The problem is that I do not find crown wheels and pinion with gear ratio 4.7: 1. Ashcroft has 4.75: 1 but then I have to change the front also.
    Some ideas??

    Regards Kenneth in Sweden

    I want to change to heavy duty 24 splines because it is stronger.

    Have you been breaking stock bits? I have no objections with upgrading, just wondering if it's desire or need.

    Might be worth giving Ashcroft a shout directly. 4.7 vs 4.75 is not massively different. Off road you might well get away with it and you won't be using 4wd on dry tarmac in a Series anyway.

    Unless you swap on a coil axle, there isn't much you can do to beef the front Series one up that I know of. There are on shafts or upgraded UJ's. Although I'm not sure how often these break.

    It´s more desire than need at this point.
    I will contact Ashcroft and see what they can offer.
