    New to the forum was just wondering if this differential would be good to convert to chain drive.

    Welcome to the site!

    Would you weld the body shut and make it oil tight?

    I've been reading lots of articles on what/how to do that but yes weld or make a sleeve to cover the open part.

    I'm planning on doing the same thing with a Volkswagen Beetle differential. I'll seal it up, but I'm planning on using grease instead of oil. I suspect that oil would leak out around the shafts. Also, a Comet differential uses grease, so it should work.

    Issue I found was sourcing bearings. But sure if close you could machine a bit from ends for bearing to ride. The cv shafts? Do they fit a common cv or gonna use ones from car? With enough machine time and welder most anything could work!

    Or heres a drop in ready setup I have for sale. https://www.minibuggy.net/forum/sale/...ive-spool.html
