    The transfer box has a clutch that in standard format is locked by the power steering pressure, there is a kit available to lock this clutch given a 50/50 split between front and rear (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) so if a front wheel spins it will act like a open diff but still giving the full 50% drive to the rear.

    Also the gearbox has a double spline output to the transfer box, one driving the O/S drive shaft and the other spline drives the transfer box.
    Hope that helps you understand.

    Daily update.
    Boot floor cut, chassis legs cut and a quick mock up to see how it all looks.
    Bearing in mind this shell has never been welded untill I started this.
    It has hard putting the plasma torch to it.

    That makes more sense I had kind of assumed it was simply a diff output to the TXB etc. cool stuff

    Update!
    After fitting the rear subframe I found it to be a little to wide.
    As I'm going for the stock look, I decided to cut 3" out from the centre of the subframe before reinstalling it.
    I am much happier with how it looks now, from the outside view you can't see anything is any different to a stock nova.
    I now have some upper suspension arm clearance issues but nothing that the cutting can't fix.

    Brave man for putting the plasma torch to a solid shell. But needs must etc. so it's all good.

    Also thanks for explaining the transfer box double shaft layout, this was new to me too.
