    Default Rear diff mounting bracket

    Are the diff mounting brackets available from anywhere or is their a part number for the bracket.

    Thankyou Phil

    Hi Jeff,
    not quite its been knocking for a while whilst going over bumps and it turns out to be the diff mount and one of the diff shocks causing the issues.
    found the problem whilst it was having a new clutch fitted....

    you were a lot quicker than i was doing the clutch no doubt. Diff shocks are available through the club I think, never seen a diff mount fail though but they obviously do. Is it the large plate that the diff bolts to with 2 large bushes or the other one thats at an angle? Post 16 or 17? https://www.two-sixties.co.uk/mgoc26...bframe-removal

    You can buy the two large bushes Phil, let me check but I changed mine when I rebuild the rear sub frame. I'm sure they were the same as another bush on the car but a different part number

    Part number for the large bushes are TBS000050, it's the same bush as number 4 https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-TBS000050
    Buggar to change but that's what I put on mine as I changed all three bushes, both 4 and 5. It shows a different part number for number 4, from memory that's TBS000040 but I can assure you they're the same. I bought mine from Scott at DMGRS

    Good luck changing those. I got a friend at kwik fit to do it with their press. Is the clutch done now?
