I'm not sure what you're on about there, but VL V8s have the battery on passenger side YES, but have BW78 diffs. I know, because i have one in my front yard right now.

Never has there been a 202 in a VL.

it was difinitly a VL boot had little lip VL stlye front VL interior. my first impression was that it was a V8 but my neighbour (ex GM assembly worker) said 202 and 3.36 diff ratio was std on 202. all i can think off is that it was end of VK stuff into new VL car.just let other people know my findings and things arnt always as they appear

I would certainly hope that a 202 was standard on a 202.

I dunno dude, certainly not in Australia.

if you or your neighbour cant tell the difference between a 202 and a v8 there is some serious issues there.....

Ahaha, burned. I was thinking the same thing.

So you think that VL had a 202 in it because of the mounts that were left over after the motor was removed? Perhaps you can check their part number.

Anyway, this thread is kind of getting of topic now. Its about BW78 diffs, not 202s in VLs.

I'm sure my diff has a drain plug but 1st post states VL diffs had no drain plug? Also in my 'Gregory's manual' it shows diff drain plug>???

There is no diff drain plug in VL BW78 housings. The plug you're referring to is probably the filler plug, located on the diff cover.

Only way to drain the oil is to remove the diff cover, or remove the axles.

VLHERO has mentioned somewhere on here how he drilled and tapped a hole for a drain plug in his diff housing when he had the centre out.

Quick question.
Lookin at buying a wagon, and the guy said it had a 4 pinion single spinner diff.

Just wondering if this would be a 28spline diff?

It is in a VL Wagon Turbo.

Cheers

If its the factory diff, then it PROBABLY is 28 spline (as all turbo and V8 models had 28 splines axles/centres).

VNs were built with 4 pinion open 28 spline centres, so it could be one of those. Best bet is to pull and axle out and count, that way you'll know for sure.

AFAIK, they all have 28 spline axles. I would pm JET R31, he would have a better idea than me.
