    LSD on a Mk3 Cortina

    Has anybody ever fitted an LSD in a cortina 2 litre (atlas) axle?
    I'm thinking about fitting a Gripper LSD on my axle and I do not know if it fits.
    My Axles original Factory's ratio was 3,44:1 I saw some pictures and I found out that it s an Atlas Axle.
    Has anybody any advice

    There's a thread somewhere on here with a very interesting link that someone's kindly put on with all the information regarding types of rear axles and it mentioned the Mk3 Cortina and the Atlas axle.

    Why not contact Gripper on Monday, they should be able to tell you whether or not it will fit your car.

    Last night I've sent an email to Gripper but I hoped that someone has already tried to fit one on a 2L Cortina Axle here

    Some good info in there.

    And there's some pics of a cortina atlas in this thread. You can see the void bushes on top of the pigs head.

    As long it’s an atlas and not a koln axle any atlas diff will fit
