66 rear axle/differential
A friend of mine asked me this:
Why is two elictrical wires going into the differential? (He only has the rear axle, not the car)
I was dumbfounded, but took a couple of wild guesses:
Is it a transmitter to something? Is it an electrical sort of hill-holder?
I've searched the net to my best, but came up with nothing.
That's why I ask all of you: What are they for?
Any help will be deeply appreciated :o)
Thanks in advance
Terkel, It's possible that the rear contains an Eaton ELocker Diff. Of coarse that's not original equipment for the car or the rear....but it would definately explain why it has two wires hanging from it. Riff
Hi Riff. That may be it. Thanks a lot :). I've never heard of those before, but I read up on them after your post. I think its unlikely, it's an Elocker - why would anyone put that in a Mercury? But it is absolutely a possibility. Thanks again. Kind regards Terkel
