Sir, I am a little confused about the lockers, they are lsd to me if there is no lever / switch to turn them on/off. And if it is LSD then you can use them in the front / back.

Also, there are enough vehicles which full have Diff locks in the front.

Agree that, we should NOT use them on hard ground.

Shanavaz, you need NOT open the diff every 10K kms.

BTW, are these full lockers or LSD? I'm zapped here. if there are full lockers, how can you turn the vehicle in high speed ?

They are full lockers and not LSD. They are always locked and their design is such that they unlock during cornering/turnings. (A spool will NOT allow differentiation of wheels during turning. NOT a locker)

Here is the link to Lock Right Locker Website that explains it's working:

A quote from the website:

Quote:
The LOCK-RIGHT's operation is fully automatic..... While traveling straight the LOCK-RIGHT will lock the axles together similar to a spool. However, when the wheels need to differentiate in a turn, the LOCK-RIGHT will allow the outside wheel to rotate faster to complete the turn. The internal gears on the LOCK-RIGHT will overrun each other to allow this differentiation.

When operating off-road, the LOCK-RIGHT will always send the engine power to the wheels that need it most. For example, if you are rock crawling and one wheel is in the air (complete loss of traction), the wheel on the ground will receive the engine power and keep you going. Whether it be snow, sand, mud, ice, etc... the LOCK-RIGHT will give you the traction you need.

Welcome to the club Gotuzk. . You will NOT regret the lockers. Take my word for it.

for Gypsy 413, it is LR 1530 [This is what I had]
For Gypsy 410 it is LR 1510 [Not sure. maybe LR 1520]

Also, there are options to order without the coupler (and use the existing side gear itself). I had the one which replaced the side gear also. Maybe 1510 is the option w.o the coupler. Not sure.

Cheers,
Shahnawaz

Yes,
I did some search on the part numbers and found that the LR1510 can be used on both 410 and 413 as it retains the stock side gears.
The LR1530, however comes with a coupler meant for the 413, as the stock side gears are not used.
The LR1530 is on the way..

Hey, you are prompting me to get my car too..LOL

BTW, which vehicle i come in is a last moment decision. There is a massive fuel shortage in the city today and all my vehicles are kinda Stuck.

My gypsy has the creature comforts too. If there are no fuel crisis, i have no issues in bringing it!

Also, I have recently added "peddars" gas filled shocks to the vehicle to give it a better landing on a jump!

Dear Shahnawaz - great to see your enthusiasm and attention to detail in doing this job. There is another way too, which uses a multiplate clutch inside the differential unit. It used to be standard supply for some models exported.

Best regards,

Thats a huge compliment sir.. Really appreciated. If I can have 1/10th of the enthusiasm and attention to detail as you, I would be more than happy.

It's people like you who are an inspiration for auto-enthusiasts like me.

Don't know. Would that be a LSD?

Yes you are correct, normally LSD comprises of a wet multiplate clutch under production setups. What you have used is an aftermarket solution provided to you because you cannot change any boundary dimensions. As the parts in your Gypsy are "post-production" fit, I suggest you go a little easy on them and get the reliability quotient established and sorted out before you floor the right pedal to metal.

And by the way - you can dispense with the "sir" bit. It makes me feel old. I am only 23 years old, you know. My medical age does not matter to me.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
