1997 Rear Differential Cover

Postby mickyhp2810 on Tue Aug 14, 2018 11:19 am


My Rear Differential cover has a crack and leak and I'm struggling to find a replacement.

Does anyone know where they can be sourced from?

since GM has this no longer in stock, the only chance is fleebay, scrapyard and so on.

Ask Greg (gregster) - he some years ago offered an exchange by sending a repaired one and the broken on got back to him. Don't know if this is still possible.

I once had a spare from aftermarket - someone over here in Germany made a little series. But I was not lucky with it because the breather was not working and oil was pressed out. However, I only recommend an original spare or a repaired one.

Someone suggested an adapter-ring to use a cover from a Jeep. But I have not followed this closer.
Good luck!
Kind regards,

Sorry for my pigeonenglish.

I have given a porrus diff housing a layer of JB weld before and remains dry.
Everything is possible until you stop to think about it.
