Detroit Locker


Recommended Posts

On a recent expedition to the Mojave Desert with our Landrover V8 130 crewcab , it developed a nasty banging a grating noise when we manouvered

at slow speed at sharp turns, which sounded almost terminal. We cured it by removing one rear halfshaft ; but this limited our offroad

capability for the rest of the 21 days, Up to then it had performed well for 3 years apart from a occassional clunk and jolt.

I note David Ashcroft sates on his www that he no longer supplies the Landrover Detroit Locker due to problems ; does this apply to

the Salisbury Differential ? Does any reader know the phone number of a Detroit Locker Agent in the UK . as the American one has

failed to reply to my e-mail.

PS has anybody had problems with the Salisbury Detroit Locker ?

Ashcroft stopped selling the Rover style Detroit due to failures and poor support from Eaton. He still sells the Salisbury ones. They do not normally die as they should be much stronger than a 24 spline shaft.

Phone Eaton at 1 800 386-1911 if you are still in the States.
