NTDWM but I found this link on another site.

A Sierra ATB LSD for £480 is about 40% less than Quaife! No idea on quality yet but worth investigating?

They also have some interesting stuff like 4AGE to type 9 bellhousings.

I spotted this earlier in the year, at first I though it was mis-listed and actually for other ford final drive applications. But looking on the actual website now it seems it is as promised. Nice to see a reasonably priced LSD for the 7" diff available again. This is what the comparable Quaife ATB cost about 15 years ago.

The Quaife ATB is a wonderful thing. I have one in my 1300 (formerly a 1900 and previously in an 1800ti). T.D has one in his daily 1800ti in the Netherlands. Am I right in thinking you picked one up cheap for your 1600 track car Jim?

Anyone else?

yep, snotty now has the Ford LSD and G97 has a Quaife that I got s/h at a very good price - and I'm VERY happy with it :-)

Loved the Quaife in my SS1, not so keen on the clutch job in my Coupe.

This looks a good buy, worth checking Historic Ford and Caterham sites to find reviews if interested

Am I right in thinking this could be installed in an original SS1 diff casing utilising the 3:92 gear.

That is what I did when I fitted my quaife.
