This came with an assortment of bits.
Similar to LC/LJ , banjo centre.
Axles 10 spline, but about 20mm shorter than the above.
Torana PCD, but on a bigger diameter flange.
Any ideas what it is from?
Thanks in advance.
( sorry if it's obvious)

Might be wrong but looks to me like a garden variety Holden banjo housing to suit leaf spring rear suspension that has been shortened, probably to fit wider wheels.

See above Torana PCD Bruce. Gemini were same banjo but narrower. Mate had one under his HR way back but not sure what pattern Gemini are.
early Holden nut
Gemini were never Banjo. The early ones had a small Borg Warner diff like an Escort & the later ones had a small Salisbury, early Commodore style.
Gemini were 100mm PCD 4-stud.

The ends of the axles look like they've been cut and re-finished to me, obviously the housing and bearing setup has been modified so probably nothing original about it?

Ok, thanks all.
Agree it looks to be shortened/re welded near bearing carriers.
Indeed, even though the axles are shorter, they almost touch in the middle when inserted all the way.
Also the brackets would seem to suit leaf type springs.
Seems to maybe be part of someone's project, but who knows.
I will keep the centre and bin the rest.

Checked out my eh diff and axles here, diff centre area looks same except for drain plug yours has,
Measures 51.5" flange to flange. Spring mountings are well different, though.
Obviously nothing for upper trailing arm mounts either, nyuk nyuk
Axle flanges measure 5.5 " across with 3 holes in. Hope that is a help at least.
Tried to put pics up, but "file too big" today for some computing reason
Oh, forgot to say, the flares on the ends look the same, too
