Tracked Amphibious Vehicle Build Ep. 3 Skid Steer / Differential Steering Unit Fabrication

Making a LADA VAZ 2101 rear axle shorter for my tracked amphibious all terrain vehicle build. It will be placed inside the vehicle with Peugeot Partner brake rotors and calipers installed to it with separate brake master cylinder for each caliper to act as a differential-brake steering unit. If the differential or the half axles I shortened fail for some reason there's easy access to the differential itself and it's easier to maintain, too. The brake master cylinders I ordered are actually hydraulic clutch master cylinders that have one output line and filler line which is perfect for the job. Don't know whether the clutch master cylinder itself is good although I've seen these used on this kind of application before. This differential unit will be coupled with 2001 1.9 D Peugeot Partner five speed gearbox through the locked/welded differential in said gearbox. The power will be transmitted through the left side half axle output. This will result in a considerable gear reduction which is needed. Hopefully it isn't too slow and this machine will be still tolerable when reversing. New video next Friday! Stay tuned!
