HD Pro Aluminum Case with Differentials, Spools & Yokes

PRF180: The HD Pro Aluminum case equipped with a posi unit can be used where weight savings or cosmetic appearance is important without sacrificing any gear life. In fact, gear life is increased over OEM cast and nodular iron units due to the rigidity of this case and pinion support design. This allows use of an aluminum case in applications that would normally be considered too heavy or abusive. Popular applications include street, Street / Track, Road Race, and many others. This package includes the HD Pro case and support, clutch style posi unit, Standard gear, and S-series 1350 yoke with u-bolts. Upgrades are available to the differential and to a chrome moly yoke. Options include a polished case and support, and a polished and chromed chrome moly yoke.

PRF184: The HD Pro Aluminum case with a lightweight steel spool and Standard gear is used where weight savings and gear life are both very important. This case will offer greater gear life than OEM cast and nodular iron units, while drastically reducing weight. A typical application is a Drag race vehicle that is still able to get sufficient life out of a Standard gear. This package includes the HD Pro case and support, lightweight steel spool, Standard gear, and a chrome moly 1350 yoke with u-bolts. Upgrades available are a 40 spline L/W steel spool or 35 spline aluminum spool. Options include a ball bearing pinion support, lightened ring gear, MicroBlue service, computer pick-up collar, polished case and support, polished and chromed yoke, aluminum yoke, and load bolt. If shock loads are going to be more extreme, the PRF188 would be the better choice since it contains a Pro gear.

PRF188: The HD Pro Aluminum case with a lightweight steel spool and 28 spline Pro gear is used where weight savings and gear life are both very important, and shock loads are too high for a Standard gear. The case and pinion support design offer a very stout foundation to support the spool and gear set. The oversized tail bearing offers more pinion support. Typical Drag Race applications are fast Door cars, Dragsters that run in both Super Comp and Top Dragster, and Top Sportsman vehicles. This package includes the HD Pro case and support, lightweight steel spool, 28 spline Pro gear, and a chrome moly 1350 yoke with u-bolts. Upgrades are available to a 35 spline 9” Pro gear, 9 1/2” Pro gear, 40 spline L/W steel spool, and 35 spline aluminum spool. Options include a ball bearing pinion support, lightened ring gear, MicroBlue service, computer pick-up collar, polished case and support, polished and chromed yoke, aluminum yoke, and load bolt.

PRF192: This center section features a HD Pro Aluminum 3.812” bore case and a special heavy duty lightened 40 spline steel spool. The spool has a thicker wall on the bearing journal to eliminate any possibility that the journal could collapse under extreme conditions. It has extended internal splines which allow the continued use of the same 40 spline axles, even if replacing a competitors 40 spline center section. The case, pinion support, and spool design create a ridged fixture to keep the ring and pinion in proper alignment. The oversized tail bearing further adds to the support of the pinion. This package includes the HD Pro case and support, HD lightened 40 spline steel spool, 28 spline Pro gear, and a chrome moly 1350 yoke with u-bolts. Upgrades available are a 35 spline Pro gear, 9 1/2” Pro gear, and 40 spline aluminum spool. Options include a ball bearing pinion support, lightened ring gear, MicroBlue service, computer pick-up collar, polished case and support, a polished and chromed yoke, aluminum yoke, and load bolt.

PRF182: The HD Pro Aluminum case with a lightweight steel spool and Standard gear is used when weight savings and gear life are both very important. This case will offer much greater gear life than OEM cast and nodular iron units, while drastically reducing weight. A typical application is a Dragster or Altered that is still able to get sufficient life out of a Standard gear. This package includes the HD Pro case and support, lightweight steel spool, Standard gear, and female coupler. Upgrades available are a 40 spline L/W steel spool or 35 spline aluminum spool. Options include a ball bearing pinion support, lightened ring gear, MicroBlue service, computer pick-up collar, polished case and support, and load bolt. If shock loads are going to be more extreme, the PRF188 which contains a Pro gear would be the better choice.

PRF186: The HD Pro Aluminum case with a lightweight steel spool and 28 spline Pro gear is used when weight savings and gear life are both very important and shock loads are too high for a Standard gear. The case and pinion support design offer a very stout foundation to support the spool and gear set. The tail bearing is oversized further adding to the support of the pinion. Solid mount Dragsters and Altereds are the most common applications. This package includes the HD Pro case and support, lightweight steel spool, 28 spline Pro gear, and female coupler. Upgrades are available including a 35 spline 9” Pro gear, 9 1/2” Pro gear, 40 spline spool, and 35 spline aluminum spool. Options include a ball bearing pinion support, lightened ring gear, MicroBlue service, computer pick-up collar, polished case and support, and load bolt. For extreme conditions such as Alcohol Dragster or Funny Car, the PRF190 would be the better choice due to the spool design.

STRANGE HD PRO ALUMINUM CASES 

The HD Pro aluminum case is designed for Drag Race applications and for the most abusive Hi-Performance street/strip applications. As with all Strange aluminum cases, it is crafted from 206-T4 heat treated aluminum. This premium aluminum has a 12% higher yield strength and a 32% higher tensile strength compared to commonly used 356-T6 aluminum. The billet aluminum pinion support has a unique oil channel that is machined 360º into the support to maximize oil flow to the pinion bearings as well as a large slot in the front to further boost oil circulation. The support is in contact with the bore of the case in two locations as opposed to one as found in normal cases. This additional contact area holds the pinion shaft much more securely resulting in better bearing and gear life. The tail bearing is oversized to handle more load and greater RPM than a stock tail bearing. Billet aluminum main caps encapsulate chrome-moly studs, provide the utmost support for the carrier bearings and significantly reduce ring gear deflection. This case is most commonly purchased in kit form due to some of the unique components. The kit contains the case, pinion support with races, support bolts and o-ring, depth shims, tail bearing and retainer plate. The remainder of the parts necessary for a complete unit are readily available. The kits are available in 3.062”, 3.250”, and 3.812” bore sizes, and for tapered or ball bearing pinion support. Bearings are not included in these kits other than the tail bearing. This case will accept 9” and 9 1/2” gear sets.
