Getlost Rear Diff Cover

I have a getlost 10 bolt rear diff cover for sale. I will have a picture of it shortly.

This is the one that requires the spacer because it is not deep enough to bolt on.

It is quite heavy. Make a good paper weight or wheel chalk.

Or you could add a spacer and use it like it was supposed to be used. I donated one of them at Silverton. Tymac won it in the drawing. I wonder if he got it mounted on his rear end, or at least on his differential. It needed the spacer also. I think he also got some synthetic gear lube, but I might be wrong about that.

Tymac.....did you get it to work?

When we mounted them the pinion gear would touch the inside of the cover. It was not deep enough and needed a spacer to be welded to the mating surface and then ground off level to extend the cover farther out.

It should not be to hard to make the spacer.

Mr Psycho,

You might ask Tymac about making a spacer and then you two could donate it to the next trail ride that you attend.

I would use it if I had a spacer for it. How deep does it need to be?
Last I spoke to Tymac, he said he had not received the spacer. But it has been several months.

I know nothing about welding, though I can use a soldering iron. Is that close?

I am sure I can find a machine shop to do it.

Tymac, did you get a spacer?

You guys need to get these mounted to cover your rear ends. Enough of the plumber's crack, already.

No spacer. Ross was moving into his new digs when I won it. I was supposed to get back with him to see if he found it. By then work was getting real busy again so goes my initiative.

Don, hold onto yours and I'll make us a pair of the spacers needed. I bought a new welder and Chuck has been bragging about his "mad" welding skills. Let me know if you want to do that or just off it. I'll take it. Then I could have matching book ends.

Thanks again Bill for the generous donation to the camp raffle fund last year.

Can one of you guys measure the inside depth of your cover? I might need a spacer too, I have not tried to install mine yet.

I remember that the gear did not hit the inside of the cover by much. It made the cover rocks slightly on its axis. It would be safer and better to make the spacer a little to thick than to thin. The extra space would just add a little more capacity to the fluid. I would estimate that a 1/2 inch flat ring would be enough. Also remember to use longer bolts to install the cover. You could use the cover as a pattern and sit it on top of a piece of flat stock and trace the outer edges. Then cut out the inside circle and weld it by running a bead arount the outside and inside where the two pieces meet leaving the mating surface flat and clean. The bolt hole would provice pilot holes for drilling the holes in the spacer.
