  2. Axle movement question

    Interesting the bronze bush could work I hand quite a bit of up down play put new seal in and has had heavy use six months no leak as yet. Dan
  3. Hi All 8-speed uni-drive Is it possible to replace the input and brake shaft seals without parting the box and Yes I know I should know this by now. Thanks for your replies Dan desperate. :ROTF:

    Hi Horsemen Any idea if there should be washers under the four diff bolts on a old C series box I have just boxed up and then thought oops should there have been, as it just had the locking nuts and looked as if it had never been down before I only have numbers on the box so unable to identify it's 1 1/8 axle Thanks for any reply Dan

  6. Hi What is this brake-neutral thing, nothing like that on my 1978 416-8 :woohoo:

Dan :wh:
