Hope you get it to where it works for you. We tried our best with what was there. Good luck with it.

Hey believe me I appreciate the effort you put into it. I will get it figured out the F104 diff works the same so I may go that way in the end. Thanks again

Were you using the stock steel axle?

After getting the car and looking at it, it turns out the thrust bearing wasn't assembled correctly. Once getting all the parts in the correct order, and adding a small, thin washer underneath the locknut, everything works great. The thrust bearing washers are different, and the one with the larger hole goes to the inside, per the diagram. The thrust bearing washer with the smaller hole goes to the outside.

I've found with this diff, and the Associated F6 diff, if you do the following it works better.

The suggested pattern for the cupped belleville washers is this: () up against the thrust washer []. NUT ()[]

I add a thin washer under the nut and switch it to the following: NUT | )( [].

This seems to allow for a better tensioning of the thrust washer and gives a little more adjustment range.

I hope that makes sense.

I havent and dont have any plans to, but its not too hard. Exotek have a metric to imperial bearing adapter which will fit the WRC, the rest is just an easy swap
