Last night I split off one side of a diff pulley and sucked the belt inside. Has this happened to anyone else?

I stripped the diffs down last night, and found an interesting problem. Where the diff halves have a keyed section for locating the diff plates, one side had allowed the diff plate to rotate thus nolonger fixing the plate in one location but allowing it to rotate.

I know why this is, the diffs are so good that they actualy need a little more pressure on the diff screw than is required to stop the diff from slipping.

What advantage would one get by installing a centre one-way unit? What combination would one suggest; one-way front and one-way centre?

Thanks.

A centre one-way still allows you to run a diff whereas a front one-way unit removes the diff.

I prefer a center one-way over the front one-way. The center one-way is a little more forgiving and a little more balanced than the front one-way.

Another issue to consider was that...until recent improvements in quality from all companies...front one-ways in cars weren't exactly what you would call reliable. One wrong tap...and I do mean 'tap' and you were looking at a new $45 purchase. Thats one of the reasons I started using center units, they rarely if ever break.

It isn't as big an issue now though.

Does it work on carpet?

Depends on the carpet and the grip level.
