    Jensen-Healey positraction differential?

    Hi Guys & Gals,
    Does anyone know if a posi or limit slip differential is available that will
    fit the rear end housing & axels of a stock J-H? Like many of our beloved
    Britmobiles, I'm sure this rear axle was used in other cars so I'm hoping
    this optional setup is available. Thanks and any pointer would be greatly
    appreciated!

    Cool Re: Jensen-Healey positraction differential?

    The short/simple answer is no, there is no LSD available for the JH axle.

    If you Google around you can find discussions about various special axles, custom modified axle swaps and custom made LSD units in modified JH axles. But no bolt-in LSD for the JH (or Vauxhall Vivas or Firenzas that the axles came from).

    Occasionally, people have tried to stir up interest in having Quaife make some but so far those efforts have always evaporated.

    These are extremely rare, but do come up every couple of years on Ebay in the UK, though I cannot say whether they're seen in the USA:
