Default Harrop front e-locker for NW

I'm considering getting an e-locker for the front diff of my NW. Harrop have recommended a gear and diff specialist in Adelaide to supply and fit. However there is a tiny problem: Harrop cannot confirm to the workshop in Adelaide whether their model for the Pajero:

https://www.harrop.com.au/shop/4x4-p...shi-fiat-front

will actually fit into the NW. There is a note on Harrop's web site that states that the e-locker will not fit the 7.25 inch crown wheel. But according to the workshop manager here in Adelaide, when he called Mitsubishi and asked for them to confirm the size of the crown wheel in the NW, they were unable to help . And without that confirmation from MMA, Harrop was not able to be 100% certain. In an email between Harrop and the workshop, Harrop state that despite this, they have supplied "many" of this model of locker over the years and have never had a complaint back from customers about the fitting. But of course this model suits many models of Pajero and Harrop won't know whether any were fitted to the NW. So its still not certain.

There was a thread in 2008 where Forum member BakerBoy (quoting "Frank" on what I think is now a defunct forum "outerlimits") gave a heap of specs for all the gens of Pajero.

https://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum...68&postcount=1

For Gen 3, BakerBoy stated: "front axle = 28 spline, 29mm diameter, diff = 8" diameter (high pinion)" and then stated that Gen 4 was the same. While that is somewhat encouraging, the provenance of the information is a little uncertain.

So, does anyone know for a fact what the front diff crown wheel specs are for a NW? If there were some documentation for this, that would be ideal. Neither I nor the workshop want to start the job and find the locker doesn't fit.

Does anyone with an NW (or I suppose a NT/NX) actually have a Harrop front e-locker?

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi Pwoffey,

Bottom line, all good. Do it.

The smaller front diff ran out early in the Gen 2. Front diffs from most Gen 2s onwards are all the same. The front locker from my 4.875:1 3.0 manual front diff was transferred to the 4.3:1 crown wheel & pinion from a Gen 4, and put back into my Gen 2 housing.

FWIW, I was on the OuterLimits Forum back then. Frank was the Mitsubishi forum moderator, and one of the global leaders in pushing Pajeros to their limits. The information in his "Bible" was good.

Frank helped to organise ARB's Air Locker for Pajero front diffs (along with a few others who still regularly participate on this forum - I think some actively contributed to ARB's development program). If you check ARB's fitment guide, that should help you gain confidence about which diffs are in which vehicles.

After this advice (and more besides, off-line) from Scott, I have gone ahead and ordered the e-locker. Thanks a bunch
