06-05-2010 09:04 PM Diff rebuild complete
Forgot to mention these brake units are left & right handed it pays to do one at a time to save having to do it twice. Photo of completed Diff ready to cover and put away for installation later.
Need to find the back cover a chrome one would be nice but these are not easy to find.

Next step is to connect the park brake lever to the cylinder there is a flat circular seal that goes between the two Photo 1. Insert all the sliding tube rubbers and the shafts Photo 2.
Last of all connect the park brake spring and bolt it to the diff.

There is an easy way to assemble the piston to the cylinder and a hard way. The easy way is, Ensure you lube all seals with brake fluid first then slide the front cover rubber onto the piston first as in photo 1. Then insert the rubber cover into the cylinder and into the internal groove Photo 2. The last step is to line the back handbrake actuator up with the back hole and then slide it in. Shouldn't need any tools it will be tight. If you need to use the handle end of a soft hammer to apply more force. Don't hit it if it wont go in check nothing is incorrectly aligned.

Brake cylinder assembly it pays to strip the piston completely as the parking brake is incorporated with the piston this has a cone type locking system that releases one way and locks the other. Photo 1 shows all the internal parts in the correct assembly order. Photo 2 shows the end of the piston with hold in clip. Photo 3 shows the hand brake actuator with needle roller bearing and washer in the correct order for assembly. All needs to be cleaned.
