Gents,

I've got a BW78 out of an Auscar with:

-Full Floating Hubs
-Harrop Centre
-1570mm Width

I would like to repurpose this diff into a VH same length as 10bolt Salisbury= 1495mm.ish

Can go up to 1510mm as per baby Salisbury diff length.

Any issues you know of with safety removing old floating hubs that are fixed to tubes??

I am in Adelaide so if this is no problem, any recommendations on who to use that wont charge a mil?

You will most likely need another spindle or maybe it can b cut off housing and lathed down and rewelded back on.id contact a qualified chassis shop to do it.. someone like frank zagari in S.A and he will tell you pretty quicky whats gotta b done..Frank and his crew are are up there with the best in the land in any fabrication work needed done..

Thanks for that. I call up a few shops & they agree as long as you can see the weld points, which you can. Purely labour they tell me.... the expensive part ;)
