Bang!! went the beddy
« on: June 14, 2012, 07:30:36 PM »
Driving along my usual back roads in the hinterlands of the shire..

i had decided to go an visit a mate

driving up his steep driveway..very steep driveway..
I had to give it a fair bit to get up there..and BANG!!
The Revs go  thru the roof and the van starts sliding backwards down the steep incline...

no 1st..2nd 3 rd reverse nothing..

Had to get the Van towed home today...$150!!! Fuuck


Put the van up on stands....engage gears..tailshaft is spinning..but nothing at rears...

hmmm me thinks broken axels..or diff....

off w wheels..out comes axel 1..sweet as..only did wheel bearing last month..sweet

axel 2..aaarrrggh..curse..not moving....get slide hammer out..n massage the crap out it...15mins later

f***!!..out comes the axel....all the splines are gone!! looks like a hungry dog has eaten the end off and chewed it up

that means the other end must be in the crown n pinion..aaaaarrrggghhhh...


Any one got a Hwy diff for sale.??????

....BUGA i sold mine!!...ive already rang Benny the wonder boy... 8)

i had an axle slide out on me in melb last time same kinda deal splines all gone  , , funnily enough had picked up new axle off ben for other side,  pain in the  arse i agree, but we just droppped the front of the diff out, n cleaned n blew the crop outta it, another axle ,all sweet again.. not hard , but non the less a right royal pain ...
I,d rather sell my...mum,....than my bedford!!

all fixed Now.. 8) 8)
pulled out the centre..a few scores on the barrel where the spline enters..
but no damage to the Crown n pinion..phew..

out of the centre ..fell the end of the broken axle..

i cleaned out the diff housing..of lil metal bits.and again w a huge magnet.....

and put a new axles in and bolted it all together..n Yay..Beddy that went bang..now all fixed and back on the road  8)


PS a lil trick I  learned today if ya ever need a slide hammer on the axles...

u can use a reversed wheel hub w a few nuts..slide that back n forth a few times..n out she pops

or sometimes its not enough and get an old rim thats stuffed and hit it from the back with a sledge hammer. only ever had 1 axel not come out that way! - and we left it in!
