    I removed the rear input shaft housing complete and this is what i see >



    From what i can see, there is no shift forks or any other contraption that controls what is making contact with the rear gear head assembly. Have i successfully converted my gearbox so its fwd only now, cos i have removed the rear assembly gear head etc. can anyone clarify what i just did and what i see.

    Now that i have removed the rear assembly, can this successfully be driven in fwd only now, cos from what i can understand, the diff will spin and it will only provide drive to the front wheels and not the back, cos the back gear head is gone etc. So if i put a 3mm blocking plate, will this technically pass for a FWD setup?. What happens if i do block it up and drive with it, will i get 100% drive transfer to the fwd or will it still be like 40/60 balance.

    -would need to see a pic of the entire assembly... but from stig's top pic in the other thread, i belive youd need to remove everything to the right of the rear motor mount. this would give you a single diff that both axles would need to be locked into. the way your sitting now i think it would throw the front into full lock all the time. while youd have 100% power to the front (maybe), youd have major overheat issues.

    -my guess btw.

    -id really need to see the book diagram of how the center diff is tied in and what yota used for lockers.
