All Things '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 being done, 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 them.

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...... )

Late Series Split Casing Differential with 4.7:1 Ratio CWP - Fully refurbished and very Original

This would be a superb differential for any owner who wants originality on their new replacement Series Differential.

With this unit it was completely stripped down, and although the Crown wheel and Pinion were in amazing condition (see picture of the finished builds 'Blue Check pattern !), unfortunately, the 4 x gears in the center of the unit were all damaged. However, we carry brand new (very very old) Genuine LR Gears in stock, so, as you can see in the picture this unit now benifits from a brand spanking new set of center gears !. It also retains all of its original bolts which have been ultrasonically cleaned and repolished and the originality is maintained right down to the correct colour paints being used inside and out, as was 'Facrory' on these units, and the lock wired Carrier Bolts.

All new Timken Bearings, a new genuine Pinion seal, new Dust Sheild anmd drive flange have been used, but everywhere else where we possibly could - its all very original.

NO Exchange unit and No Surcharges etc required

Pre-Loved Very very early Series 1 80' 4.7:1 Split nose 1949/50 10 spline Ratio Differential - Fully rebuilt 100% original !

WOW !

You are looking at a very early Series 1 80 inch differential, circa 1949 ./ 1950. It can be dated to this from clues such as the single lock tabs on the CWP bolts (the later 51 etc had lock tabs covering 2 bolts at a time, the fact the really early casings we not painted inside, and nor was the center. (yes it's very much rustling anoroak time LOL). But boy what a unit. We bought this in from a customer who found it under his bench moving house, and reckons it was under there for at least 35 years as his spare....and looks it too!

we have stripped in completely, Ultra sonic clean every part, then repolished the gear sets, and used all the original bolts (check out the brand name on them !) even down to repolishing the original split pins and then to finish it off lock wired it as it should be.!

We have pretty much reused every original part, the only new parts are the Bearings - all replaced with Timken, new Genuine Seal, new Brass gasket, new Genuine new old stock thrust washers, and pretty much everything else has been refurbished to as good a stanbdard as we can get and we have ended up with a fabulous unit seen here

The quality screams out at you - 'Cross Drilled' gearsets, bronze plated cross shafts etc etc. Old School quality, and in exceptional condition, great blue check and quiet too !

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.
