    A few people have asked for info on the r160 Subaru I'm running. I figure it's just as easy to post it up hear and save myself sending out PM's one after another.

    I've also gone the drive shafts and hubs as I already had some catching dust in the back of the shed. It would not be hard the weld a flange to machined down stubs/CV housings to run whatever CV's you wish.

    R160 rear diff is the diff fitted to about 90% of all Subaru models. Liberty, Forester, Impreza, Outback. The only other rear diff fitted is an R180 which is larger, rare and worth crap loads. You wont find one of them and if you do sell it a live like a king.

    The R160's do come in open centre, Viscos LSD and plated LSD. The later two are less common but are around.



    The outer housing is as above.


    You need to then pull the back of the housing off to get the centre out of it. My wife still tells me all the reason's why she loves the smell of old diff oil.



    Once you have the centre out undo the bolts and remove the ring gear (large gear).

    You will need to angle grind off the stock bearings. Try to not make a meal of the centre to much.

    What you then have left should look like this.


    Due to the sprocket I'm running I am going to get an engineer to machine webs off and drill and tap it to fit my application.



    Your setup may need to be different depending on your sprocket and the layout of your rear end.

    Over the next few weeks I will make sure to take more pics and update my progress.

    Do you plan to weld some covers on openings of diff to drop in some lube? Looks like a solid plan.

    I'm just going to weld the spiders gears but as said a few posts back shrink wrapping it with a 2l soft drink bottle is and option if running a LSD.

    NICE!! I like the use of the Subaru parts. I will be using a Subi drive-train in my next build. SubaruRears has a cool reverse ring an pinion for a back mounted Subi engine.

    Your car should rip pretty good!!

    Must be due for an update. Best I take some pics tonight.

    But thus far.

    Clutch, throttle cables and gear shifter are attached and working. Throttle cable will need a second return spring.
    Both rear lower control arms have been welded and finished. A few small alignment changes may be needed but thus far I'm happy.
    The lower air shock mounts are fitted. The uppers need more head scratching to get the travel correct. No big stress just time.
    Fuel cell is now mounted but the fuel line may need changing. It works for now.
    Seat is bolted in and 4 point harness fitted.
    Diff mounting points are done so the diff can be removed to be machined, taped and have the 66 tooth sprocket fitted. Once this is done the final alignment can be found so I can fit the 15 tooth gear to the layshaft.
    Rear brake caliper and disc are mocked and I'm happy to a degree. Space means it may need to be mounted on the layshaft that means if the chain fails so do rear brakes. I have two front brakes if I does but still not good. The 4.4:1 mechanical advantage is nice but odds are I will work out a better way at a later date? Maby welded to the inner CV housing. Just one of the joys of following a plan in your head and not on paper. Keeps it fun. LOL
    Chain tensioners are in the work it out later box. As is battery location (in the front somewhere) and diff spider gears for now.

    $800 worth of rear shocks nuked the sub $3k plan but my spine I feel is worth it. Hoping for around 300kgs but in truth I will be happy just to have it finished.


    That's all I can think of thus far.

    All the fiddley stuff that takes forever.

    I was hoping to have a nice pic of it holding it's own ass end up but by 11pm the top shock mounts need more thinking time so I went to bed. Soft!

    Try for Monday night.
