After looking at many diffs I decide to have a bolt on tube design. First I had to manufacture the flanges that would be pressed into the diff head these I made from ¾" thick plate welded to schedule 80 boiler tube. Drilled and tapped with ½" threads. I pressed these into the diff heads and welded them on.

Photo No.1 Removed the drive shaft clamp bracket then remove the pinion.
Photo No.2 Shows the tubes removed from the diff head. It took a lot more effort than anticipated to remove the tubes. Was told to put the diff head into a large vice and rotate the tubes and they will come out. Not true after borrowing a gas plant from a mate and heating, still could not turn the tubes. Reverted to the railway tradesman method, big sledge hammer a lot of sweet and they finally came out with the aid of heat. I am thinking about replacing them with S/Steel tubes, as there are allot of dings on the tubes now.
Photo No.3 Shows the tubes battered and dinged. Stainless steel will look a lot better.
