vk diff into vb

i just bought myself a vk diff to put in my vb. Its just a standard vk diff non lsd. Has disk brakes. I was wondering if there was anything i needed to change or if the parts are interchangeable. I was told i needed a new master cylinder because of the disks.

Also the diff was complete minus the handbrake cable. Coud i use my stock vb handbrake cable or do i need a new one?

Cheers
James

YOU can use your master cylinder if YOU REMOVE THE CHECK VALVE IN THE REAR BRAKE OUTLET IN THE MASTER CYLINDER.

You will need to use/ get a disc brake hand brake cable YOU CAN NOT use you drum brake one.

You nay also need to get a vk tailshaft as the vk has a flange on the front of the diff and dose not use u bolts like the vb tail shaft is..

Early VK's used a salisbury (both large and small) in all variants, only the late VK Wagon's had the borg warner diff fitted, then with the change to VL's come the Borg Warner being fitted across the range.

So does that mean that i may be able to use my VB tailshaft just depending on what diff i've got?

It depends if you have the small or large uni joint fitted. All large salisbury diffs had the large uni joint and most small salisbury diffs had the small uni joint fitted.

Alright, Could I take the uni joint off the diff thats already in my VB and put that on the new diff or arent they detachable?

The picture is of a drum brake cable, the disc brake one has a different end to fit the hand brake lever.

Get the seller to confirm what is being supplied as the photo is not correct to what is being advertised.
