Well I have got around to going over the rear differential of the car I'm restoring, thought I would change the oil in it check the brakes and bearings etc. when I took the cover off to let the oil drian I noticed a felt pad cliped in the bottom of the housing, this is the second time I bumped into this pad the first time was on my other car a 1975 JH5, this car is a 74.

Does anyone know why the factory saw fit to install this item ???.

On my 75 I removed it and have had no issue's over the years, but now it has got me wondering just why in the first place it is even there and should I put the pad back into the 75.

Anyone have an idea ???

Thanks Brett.
