Torsen questions

Ok, so basically for my mechanical engineering class I am going to build a a torsen l/s diff. in SolidWorks. I want to make the one thats in the Ranger so atleast I'll have an interest in it.

I digress, I have been scouting for some schematics but have come up dry. I really want some inside pics and even some measurements if possible. I checked TRS and didnt find anything useful. How Stuff works has been a gold mine, I know that!

Its either this or a Rotary motor. But I'd rather do this.

Thanks in advance!

Sophmore :( Basically we have to make something to illustrate a mechanical prinicpal, or something like that. This should suffice, as long as I'm not in over my head. I think I'm going to Email them and ask if they have any drawings/schematics of the T-2 availaible. I see they have a T-1 there.

Yeah, I'm pretty excited to get to the final product and see it all working in harmony without several error messages. I Emailed them about additional information such as a spec. sheet, so We'll see how it goes. I will definately keep you two in my sights because I'm sure to have something down the road to throw me for a loop.

Ranger Rick on ORR works for Torsen and I think holds some of the patents.
