HF35 merely means it is an open diff with a 3.5:1 ratio.



Being a 96 I'd think you have either a C200 or a H233b.

HF denotes that the axle is a H190 axle, 35 denotes the gear ratio.

with that being said, if you have a diff cover then you have a C200 axle. most likely swapped out by a previous owner.

Looks like I do have the C200 based on my manuals and the diff back cover plate. I wondered about the code because I bought it off my dad (orig. owner) so I'm sure it's the original diff. Thanks for the info.

so, help me understand this, I have an 1987 4x4 5 speed pathfinder. I put a rear end from a 1995 4x4 pathfinder, didn't change the front diff. will this cause issues and bind the front if I activate the 4wd drive?

Default 2003 crewcab with C46/ C200 diff

just so you know I have a 2003 crew cab XE V-6 Automatic I bought new in southern California
the door code for the rear axle is C46 its been an incredible truck and now resides on the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
We build a winery here and now i need to up-grade the Rear Axle to a posi due to snow and lots of horrible mud. I have goodyear duratrac tires which help but the right tire frier needs to go. i have been stuck to many times
i believe you mentioned that ARB makes a locker for this Axle. is that true?
is there any special notes i need to know to install that diff. I have been a auto tech for over 40 years so i should have no problem doing the up grade unless there is a tool i may not have ( I highly doubt it)
I am even playing with the idea of installing an LS1 from my vette when i install the LS3. i will definitely need a posi then.

I'm going out on a limb and think my 1986 D21 4 banger/5spd has the 'H190' rear end, it's a Hotchkiss style, def NO inspection cover. Note what I'm attempting to find out is IF I can install a different flange to accomodate a 1995-97 style D21 driveshaft, otherwise I'm gonna 'ghetto' and drill out the existing flange to fit the newer 'shaft.

Whats the code on your inner fender plaque?



Why not rebuild the one you have?



If you get a 4cyl shaft youll probably be able to plug and play. A V6 shaft will be a good lit larger.



There is no such thing as a 95-97 shaft as in 95 there were multiple motor choices. In 96 the V6 was dropped due to emissions BS.

The driveshaft I bought is fitted with the large, easy to replace U joints, and uses the same center support bearing as on my 1986 Hardbody 4 banger. I did some quick meaurements and, both assy's are the same length and, the tranny splines look identical as well. Both my truck as well as the donor are King Cab, 5 spd, 4 cylinder 2WD D21/Hardbodies.

What I'm looking for is either a diff pinion flange that would fit on my present 190 rear and would accept the 2 1/4" square bolt pattern of my newer driveshaft. The present pinion flange is 2 1/4" on way and 2" even the other way.

Sounds like it came from a truck that had the C200 axle (96-97 FSMs indicate it was standard on KC 5MT 2WD SE trucks, and optional on XEs; otherwise H190). The C200 and H233B have the same flange bolt pattern, both larger than the H190, and there isn't an H190 pinion flange that has the larger pattern.

This might be an option, if the u-joints aren't already the same: https://www.clubfrontier.org/threads...2/post-1639874

Why are you wanting to use the newer driveshaft anyway?
