I am loving this little series he's doing. Been following it since video one.
Me too,I've never been a fan of aftermarket diff covers as they don't address fluid control with-in the diff,and it's starting to look like they aren't the way to go now.
Have you found examples of aftermarket covers causing issues ?
Just my personal opinion from looking at rear-ends for 50 years,lol.The manufactures incooperate some sort of channel to guide the oil up and over the ring gear and onto the pinion bearings,none of the commonly available covers address that issue.Way back in the 50's the manufacture's started addressing the issue of getting fluid onto the pinion bearings.The foaming issue that Gale is seeing was something I hadn't thought about,but it makes a lot of sense when you're shearing the fluid on sharp corners.
Gotta hand it to Banks for diving this deep.
I will wait until he shows us the temperature tests. Is there a temp sensor for some of them? Has any one put a sensor on one of there's .
I have to say, just from what the testing has shown so far, I've pretty much crossed an aftermarket diff cover off my list of upgrades to do. Unless they find one that actually moves the fluid up and over the pinion like the stock one does.
we're going to find out at the end of episode 10 that this was all one big infomercial for a Banks rear dif cover.
Given Gale's reputation I don't think that will be the case. But if it is, as long as it solves the issues he's brought up, I'll still consider it as having been worth watching.
