When one rear wheel is up in the air, you should be able to move from standstill. If you do it successfully then you know your diff lockers are working..
Andy - check the vidoe in post #164 below. That shows how the vehicle should move only in 2wd when one rear wheel is in the air. The wheel in the air should turn at the same speed as the wheel on the the ground. This happens because the rear diff gets locked.

I have recently bough a Gypsy King with Nissan CD17 diesel motor, matched with the stock gear box. I need to know the followings...
1. Is there anyway that we can change the final ratio??? I want to get better high speed. Can we get different tail and crown ratio options for differential?? Is there any other way (other than changing the tyre size)?? Right now tyre size is 215x75 R 15.
2. I have read about the differential lock that GoSlow fitted in his Gypsy. I well understand the advantages of fitting one in the rear. But is there any disadvantage too?? I assume LockRight 1530 is automatic differential lock, does it not make any 'kat kat' noice when getting engaged and disengaged.
