Differential insert question?

I'm installing bushings. I took the differential mount off.
4 bolts on top, then the two that attach to the diff cover.


How do I get the insert inside the mount?
Everything came off as one big piece and I dont see how I can insert it in there.

I put it on the bench, wedged it up against the vise, then used a bar to pry it open.
It went in easy.

Thanks for the respone.
So it's possible to split the mount into two pieces? I just didn't want to damage it

Split it? I think you are doing something wrong.

Yeah, don't split it in two. Sorry for the confusion.

I used a prybar to widen the opening enough to insert, the, um, insert.

Soapy water. IMHO the insert doesn't do much.

Yeah, I would have to agree.

But you paid for it so you want to use it.

The Energy one fills only half the voids of inserts like I used (before my Harrop cover) so the benefit I would think would be even less. I'd still use it if I had it though. Doesn't hurt.

So the Harrop cover would be a better choice then the insert, I was looking at the Lovells insert myself. I have not been able to find the harrop cover. Where can you purchase it and how much does it cost? I still don't understand how a Diff cover can help reduce wheel hop?
