Equip rear diff guard install

What am I doing wrong? The top bracket is quite a bit too short. Do I have the wrong part? Was sold to me 2nd hand to fit RRC/D1/D90.

It looks like it's not sitting right.

Clean that diff out and see if it will slide in further.

Also, might need to remove the paint from the "ring".

I may have painted it too much and now it doesn't fit.

Loic, I installed the same. Install the ring over the top of the diff first and loosely secure the hardware. Then use a floor jack to press up the pinion guard side to help slide the bottom of the ring over the diff with a little massaging (i.e., a no bounce, large flat chisel, a shot of PB, etc.) as required.

I think some diffs have a thicker mounting flange. I had to cut and weld on the top part of my Southdown rear diff guard. (big steel diaper type)

Equipe diff guards came with two top brackets, no matter what, one of them never fit. I wonder which one you have?

So... Since I have under the gun I did not go the cleaning route. I think cleaning might help since after some hammering, strapping, etc it looks almost there. I'm unclear what that top bracket is supposed to do, so I went ahead and left everything hanging. Since I ended up not sliding on anythingl
I also talked to Charles and told me to stop being a sissy since classic LRs are not precision item and most of the time nothing quite fit without a BFH.

I have the same guards and I went with the floor jack method. Get the top plate fitted, then use a floor jack to push the very front of the drive shaft protector up and hammer and pry until the bottom bolts line up.
