  Has anyone modified the URQ diff lock set up to be manual as opposed to 
vacuum operated?
On my late build 83 (now totaled) the locks worked but were quite slow, and 
had the ability to lock center only or both center & rear. My current early 
build 83 has an "on off" set-up linking both center and rear, and will engage 
them but not disengage them.
Over the weekend I had the car up off all 4s and used a vacuum pump to 
thoroughly test the system for leaks, and both the green (engage) and red 
(disengage) systems are leak free. The red system just doesn't have enough grunt to 
pull the diffs off.
I would like to go to a manual system with levers and control cables but 
need to source some "custom" parts and cables, and was curious if anyone else 
has already done this.
I had recently thought my alignment was bad as the car would corner weird on 
long sweepers and just handle a bit strange. it now appears my rear diff has 
been locked for some time.
