'Series' Land Rovers - Differential and Parts Page
On all Series Land Rovers, From the early Series 1 80' models through 2s and into 3s, more and restortaions are
and owners are looking for both quality and originality in the work they choose to have undertaken.
We have seen over the last few years this trend growing as we see more and more Differentials coming into our
workshops, some just want the Differentials to be 'Solid and relaible', some
want full rebuilds so they know everything is as it should be, and more and more wish us to undertake a full
restoration and all groups are often asking us to re use as much as we can do
- like the original bolts etc, so even when fully restored they are as original as we can possibly make
As an example the video above shows a full Rebuild on a 1948 Super Long Nose differential. This is pretty much
everything we can do including repainting the casing and center in correct
colours and positions when cleaned, reusing all the original bolts and parts, repolishing the CWP and rebuilding
with quality bearings (we try to use Timken whenever we can but due to prices / rarity we also condider
either SKF or NTN all of which are premier bearings). New Thrust washers new Genuine seal new Genuine lock tabs
and anything else we felt could be best for the Differential.
However, customers do vary, from those who wnat the above to those who actually ask us NOT to repaint as they
want to keep the patina and some in between, whatever your
wishes are we will be able to accomodate, ring and chat to us - we love Series Differential refubishments !
Recently we also decided when the opportunity arose to purcahse a large amount of Series Differential Parts, the
vast majority are Genuine LR, and includes Brand New Genuine 4.7 CWPs,
drive flanges, seals, tablocks, Bearings, the early 'Bakerlight Type Fibre' Drive shims, Head and Tails pre and
Head shims, new Original bolts, Newe Planet and Drive Gear sets, and more !.
With all the above happening we though it was well overdue for us to Launch a dedicated page 'For All Things
Series', here you can lookat options for your restoration of Differentials,
possibly even buy units already done, and in verious 'Grades' of work done (all work on each is fully listed),
and also see parts avaialble to buy, and finally useful links to other companies
who we know are trustworthy and we are happy to recomend.
So here it is - Enjoy - and fell free to ring and discuss any questions queries or specification of any work you
would like us to undertake on your behalf

Pre-Loved Series 1 80' Super Long Nose 4.88:1 CWP 10 Spline Circa 1948 / Early 1949
About as rare as you can possibly get in the world of Land Rover Differentials, and if you know what this is - you will know it is !
As the header says it's super rare 1948 / early 1949 Series 1 80' Super Long Nose 4.88:1 CWP. Fully rebuilt with all new bearings but with an unbelivable amount of effort with
UltraSonic Cleaning and Polishing, it also means it's pretty much all original other than the new Bearings and Seal !. ALL the bolts including even the split pins are ALL original.
It's also correctly repainted inside and out, and even the Locking Tabs have been repolished and reused. It's in exceptional condition, and who knows if we will ever have another ?.
The bearings for these are unique, seriously rare and even harder to find the best quality ones vs pattern rubbish being palmed off on the unsuspecting- and as such, when you do find
them - bloody expensive. Even if found in dire states these diffs are extremely valuable carrying a large premium. So not only are they expensive to buy they are even more expensive to
rebuild properly, compared to any other Land Rover differential. I am not even going to consider the labour hours spent on it, so whilst the price may seem high (if so just move on lol ) it was definately not a profit maker!
More like a labour of love - and I do love it !. (it's badly affected my 'Sad' side :O) )
YES - we would consider a similar unit in P/Ex against this, but you will need to speak to us as the CWP alone on these (if needing to be replaced) are £900 + VAT !, so,
these are not cheap to either buy in or rebuild !
It's now currently sitting on my office desk, where I admire it daily - sometimes even several times a day :O)
The price above is OUTRIGHT NO Exchange unit and No Surcharges etc required - but as mentioned we would consider a P/Ex Unit - Talk to us
( ...And as we say - but more so on this one - 'When this 'Has Gone' - it's most definately gone'..... and who knows if we will ever have or even see another we can buy...... )
Call for details
Pre-Loved Incredible Condition Tru-Trac 10 spline Ratio Differential - Can be built up however you would like !
Not often you will see a 10 Spline Tru-Trac in this condition !
We do get some little gems now and again, this was bought in with a mass of other differentials - this is a 10 Spline Tru_Trac ATB which had been under a bench or #Some years'.
As a result when we stripped it to check it over it literally is like new !
It's on the 'All Things Series' page as we can see this being sort after by someone with a Series looking for a stronger differential, and one with additional traction, so,
at the moment we have put the center back together and await either time to build for stock for webshop, or, if a customer decides they want it - and decides the build spec we will
fast track it and build it !
If and when we get around to building for stock most likley is we would build it into an imperial Series Casing, with one of our New Genuine LR 4.7:1 CWPs, but equally if wanted we can
build with a new 3.54 Ratio.
Either way this is a superb unit ..........just look at the gears and the condition !
NO Exchange unit and No Surcharges etc required
Series Differentials Parts For Sale
BRAND NEW Old Stock GENUINE Land Rover Series 4.7:1 CWP set
The Series LRs CWPs being 4.7:1 Ratio means if you need a new one the options are limited.
As Differential builders we know that there are no decent 'pattern' 4.7 CWPs out there, we have tried them all.
Simply put - they are ALL appalling quality mainly made in India, then rebranded and sold for differing prices by various retailers across the UK !.
They are all nasty !
However, we have now a number of GENUINE LR Factory 'New Old Stock' Units.
These are all as in the pictures, some are 'Military issue' from LR to the Military, and some are in Rover / Leyland / Unipart ! Boxes etc.
All are Genuine brand new LR Units - boxes may vary LOL !.
As such these build really well, vs the pattern stuff (yes.....we have tried ALL the avaiable pattern gears - just don't is our advice ! ).
So, as to be crystal clear - We have put a few pictures up of the various types, as said all are Genuine LR issue, but the boxes etc vary between them, if you just order one / two we will
send whatever is next on the shelf.....
But if you REALLY want one particular box for whatever reason ...then ring and advise which one you fancy ...either before of after you have bought and you can have whichever you wish for if that helps !
If you want a really good quality 4.7:1 CWP for your Series you will not regret investing in these !
BRAND NEW Old Stock GENUINE Land Rover Series - Early 4.7 Version with additional 'Ground Shaft Hole' on Crown Wheel
Not all the 4.7 Series LRs CWPs are eaxctly the same !.
When LR changed the ratio from the 1st differentials - the 4.88:1s to 4.7:1s the early version of the new ratio has an 'Extra' hole in the crownwheel and the Center body, these take
a special 'Ground Pin' and nut and were made to improve the centering of the 2 units. It wasn't for long - as they soon 'Deleted' this hole - probably to save money !.
If you are rebuilding an early 4.7 Differential and have this version it is a higher quality solution. You can use the normal 10 bolt type - as above, but not the other way around.
BRAND NEW Old Stock GENUINE Land Rover Series Crankshaft Pulley Vibration Damper Assembly Part Number 215935
Genuine Series Crankshaft Pulley Vibration Damper Assembly - Brand Spanking New and in a Genuine LR Part in it original Land Rover Box !
Only the one !. Part Number 215935 covered in the military wrapping (and a heavy coating of the brown protective wax you can see in picture 4 ! ) -
which will mean its superb once you get it all off - erm ....which does take 'some' time !. But means its in fabulous protected condition from new !
