So, I stopped by Gripper Differentials in Coventry, UK today. While there, I handed them a spare J-H differential carrier to use for measurements and possibly design & production of a limited slip unit for the J-H. They're hopeful a suitable design can be developed that avoids expensive custom tooling. There are currently two of us interested in a unit. If anyone else is interested, drop me a message, as more units will reduce the per unit price. Not a lot more details for now. Note - it may be a few weeks before we know the feasibility & cost.
