The new designed NXG (NeXt Generation) LSDs: the strongest, most progressive and versatile LSD unit in the market place. The 3J clutch plate pack always runs with 8 active surfaces, even in our lighter settings, giving maximum surfaces and surface area contact during use. A new design pre-load spacer helps generate the pre-load. Rather than just have the 2 or 3 settings of other units, the unit can be 'fine tuned' to precise pre-load settings which when complemented with the choice of ramps, allows you to get the perfect LSD set up. The bevel and planet gear pack has been designed for a smoother mesh with a bigger and stronger tooth profile. This helps eliminate the rattle and excessive back lash that are often found in other plate type LSDs. All 3J LSDs are built to this design with the exception of the English Salisbury style unit. All units have the benefit of dual ramps allowing the driver to vary how the LSD reacts when entering and leaving a corner. This progressive unit is designed for Ford English Axle. Larger journal diameters for added strength with bearings included to suit. Duel ramp blocks give a choice of ramp angles (25/70, 30/60, 30/90, 45/45, 35/35, 40/90 and 50/90) which along with the three factory preload settings of 10-15,25-35 and 60-70lbs/ft and the fact you can choose a specific pre-load setting if you so desire, provides the ultimate choice of set up.

*Please check axle type before ordering parts. Many non-UK Escorts were fitted with a Koln axle which is visually similar to an Atlas axle but much weaker.
English Axle (also known as the Timken or Banjo axle): Originating from the Anglia 105E in 1959, the English axle has been extensively used throughout many Ford models during the 1960s and 1970s. It has also been the choice for many kit cars. Although it was Ford's light duty axle from this period, it has been used extensively in competition applications for over 50 years and can easily deal with power figures way in excess of the original design intensions.
Identification: The English differential unit bolts to the front of the axle casing. The Atlas and Koln axle have an integral differential housing with a rear inspection cover bolted to the casing.
Standard halfshaft spline is 22 teeth except for Capri which uses 16 teeth.
Oil capacity is approx 1.1 litres.
