[DaimLan] V8250 diff ratios


(Tudor95) #1

As a new owner of a 1968 V8 250 I find it a Little low
geared for driving on our Autobahn’s.
Is it a big Job to Change the dif. ratio to something that
would give it a bit longer legs??

Best regards

It depends... It is only about 15 minutes more work than 

rebuilding a diff without changing the ratio. OTOH it does mean
checking the pinion drop, so it means the same as rebuilding the
diff.

Doing this yourself, or taking it to a shop?

Hi Andrew,
Thank you for the info.
I have never had a diff apart so although I do most things
myself, I think that I would give this to an expert. If I
can find one!

Barry,

It isn’t really a ‘‘Hexerei’’, but it does require a certain level
of attention.

Try and find a local Offroad club, and ask them who is good in
your area. Failing that a ZF Werkstatt.
