Brake fluid in a diff?

does it acualy lock your diff or is it just a load of shit! lol

Never heard of it, but I select option 2.

Just on the off-chance that the question is sincere, and not the wind-up it looks like.

No.
That would probably not lock your diff.
However, it would very quickly ruin it.

Yes in time it WILL lock your diff up.
Right up

have had a few people tell me it does when it heats up but when its cold it doesnt.

I think O.P. wants to achieve the kind of "locked diff" where both wheels turn together, enabling him to do da MEAN AZ pHat sKidZ y0.

Not the kind of locked diff where neither of the wheels turn around at all.

perry111, Jan 27, 4:51am
yes that kind ov locked diff, but not 4 skids 4x4ing

there is a kind of locking diff that uses brake fluid for 4wding. its similar to a air locking diff but runs off hydraulic pressure. howat engineering in wellington build them

Pull the cover off it and weld any cogs you can see to each other. That'll lock it far more effectively than buggering about with oils.

What, all of them!

owene, Jan 27, 8:09am
Yep all of them.

jmma, Jan 27, 8:12am

pebbles61, Jan 27, 8:22am

jmma, Jan 27, 8:33am

1. Brake system fluid and 2. stripping paint.

Brake fluid in a diff is guaranteed to "put the brakes on"
