    you never know. and if it does, its not like I wasted any money. Ill just put another in and search for a better rear end. only about an evening of work to change/setup a diff/r&p

    gts welded took the abuse fine

    Keep on keeping on dude !

    BTW, I'd suggest you weld the side gears to the housing too, I've seen a couple of welded diff like yours go when the gears' teeth broke.

    I'm with Answer, weld the side gears too, actually weld every bit you can get to.

    yea probably be a good idea, middle gears are welded pretty solid to the housing but the more the merrier. Thanks for the concern

    only way to weld a diff is acetylene torch and some nice red wine. thats my 2cents.
    looks good, can't wait to see the rotard in action.
    good luck guy.

    I actually welded like 6 or 7 diffs that went into different vehicles, I welded them all with MIG and none of them broke. HOWEVER, you should try to not get it too hot while welding, and once you are done you need to let it sit for a really long time to cool slowly. Covering it with an asbestos blanket to slow the cooling is even better. MIG welding is less than ideal for those, but it still works if done correctly, as it also works for steering knucles. Do keep in mind those parts, contrary to popular beliefs, are not made from cast iron but rather from cast/forged STEEL, which is far easier to work with.

    Here is the aftermath of a welded diff with only 4 small welds (yours is obviously stronger, but still...)

    ive always been told, that it's not so much the amount of heat...more the location of it.

    people tend to mig weld in one big blob, and crank the hell out of the welder to get a nice big bead onto the huge teeth of the gears...lots of localized heat that creates weird temper points and makes it brittle.

    the people that ive watched usually heat the entire area with an oxy torch, LIGHTLY, and weld nice and slow, with a mig welder- try to keep all the heat nice and even. then let it cool down, with an oxy torch again. SLOWLY.

    same for welding knuckles, like you said- or any cast item. gotta get it all hot, evenly, and get it to all cool evenly, slowly.

    In Toyota, we rust.
