Question regarding 7 1/4 Differential

Post #1 by Ashley47 » Thu Oct 25, 2018 1:29 am

It's more or less a Yes or No question

Can an differential (a 7 1/4 in my instance) have both a 4 Pinion and Equal-lock Clutches?

Only ask I whilst going through all my hoardings over the past 15 years I found two Equalock housings, clutches, splines etc and a 4 pinion kit and I thought, if it can be done, why not, we're not going to live forever and I sure as heck am not allowing my car to live longer than me.

I dont believe so, they both require a special style of carrier housing, ie the 4 pinon needs the 4 hole style housing and the equalock requires the style to retain the clutch plates. If you knew a really good machinist that would be willing to custom make a housing for you it could be done in theory. But as is, you get to choose one or the other. Myself i would go with the equalock.
