Priceless. Gotta love carnage. Although you made me wait to the last few seconds to see the best part!

Reasons why a rover diff is a waste and everyone should convert to toyota. Did the KAM survive?

Ya the KAM was fine. It was not the R&P that failed me but more the diff housing.

Curious - what R&P and gear size were you running? And how did the diff housing blow it up?

BTW, thanks for the vids - I usually do not comment on them but always enjoy them.

We are glad you enjoy the vids and thank you for the kind words.
I am running 4.75s.
The diff blew up because the bearing cap could not hold the carrier in place and stretched the bolts. When it did this the ring gear can move ever so little. This is just enough for the pinion to come off the root of the crown tooth. Then you get Boom.
So how do you correct this one my ask? This has been my quest for the last month.
The best I can come up with is to peg the diff and reinforce the bearing caps. Ill let you know in a few weeks how we made out.

... or go with a Toy conversion. A spiral bevel design will never be as strong as a hypoid design, all else equal. But this is old territory.

Fun vid, keep them up.

To ad to what was said. There is no way to make those last. They are a bad design in an even worse design, under a heavy truck.

I thought there was a way to put a bolt or something to put pressure on the cap?
