  1. Here's a picture of the barbed clip , as you turn the dial it works it's way up the thread and pushes the collar over the spline , the metal is as thin as a paperclip , one had broken off , awful design
  2. I'll do that thanks , does anyone sell these fragile metal clips that fail in the FWH , ( I'm not refitting them, just wondered ) it just seems a massive waste , these FWH have failed due to a clip that looks like it could be made for 50p breaking , not a great design .
  3. It was the hubs which is a massive relief the annoying thing is ( probably eBay them ) that 99% of them are in perfect working order , I'm assuming it's no surprise to others that the little metal barbed clip that slides up the thread and depress the surround around the spline had deteriorated . What a lot of fuss about a badly designed metal clip , I'm just ordering some fixed hubs , I really appreciate all of your contributions. Thanks again . I was ready to give up and sell the bloody thing (regular accurance).
  4. These are the same hubs as mine , mine aren't as clean and shiny , selectro.
  5. I'll take a lot of photos tomorrow and forward , thanks , being that one of the half shafts literally isn't turning when the other is leads me to think that the half shaft on the side is also broken , being that it isn't my daily ride anymore (it was for a long time ) I have the luxury of opening it all up to see what I need first rather that getting loads of parts I don't need and returning them but I'll let you know .
  6. Ok massive progress today , I cant seem to get the FWH off ( advice needed please ) however I did get the front of the FWH off so I could see the shaft , So , the internals were all covered with grease ( not a bad thing ) nothing was rusted , however the wheels turn by hand with hubs locked or unlocked , , wheels however do not turn propshaft....but if I place wheels on ground whilst I press gas the halfshaft on the drivers side can be seen turning in the hub ,but not catching and the one on the passenger side moves intermittently , so hopefully it's the hubs. All I need to do now is to get the hubs off ,any advice please ? , I have taken the bolts out however ivd been trying to pry them out with a hammer and chisel , its moves slightly but not a lotb, is it just a case of peservance !! Thanks for all the ongoing help , I'm assuming now that it's the hubs not catching the rotating shafts . Can I buy original hubs X2 as a kit or do I need to buy individual parts ? Oh ive just seen there's a castellated nut , I'll sort that out to remove , there was so much grease in there that I could see it , I'm thinking 2x dustcovers , 2 x split pins , 2 x castellated nuts 2x large washer 12x bolts , 2 x hub driving member gaskets , do I still need the felt washers , if so can you still buy them ? lo-fi your video was very helpful thanks .
  7. Morning / Evening . So this morning I have raised both wheels 1 at a time , when I rotate them both individually in FWH lock and unlock they do not rotate the propshaft , where should I go next ? The 4wd does seem to engage because it is turning the propshaft but the wheels don't turn the propshaft and the propshaft doesn't turn the wheels ? Would a faulty FWH stop the other side working , if I dismantle hub what am I looking for ?
  8. I will explore all suggestions. Thanks .. I appreciate your help . Ill let you all know ,, there's nothing more annoying than lots of suggestions and no outcome .
  9. Thanks David , Ok , so (I need this clarifying because I'm simple ) I've removed the rear propshaft because the ujs need replacing ( ordered ) so I appreciate the 2wd will not currently operate however it is turning as if it's trying to turn the non existent propshaft ( not an issue ) , the FWHs are locked , the front propshaft can be seen turning through the removed floor panel , however it is not moving , I did a circuit of my road after removing rear propshaft and was so happy that the noise has gone that I thought I'd do a victory lap , however when I try to move it now it just revs as if not in gear , yellow plunger up or down , red plunger pushed forward or fully back , does the front prop turning with no movement of the wheels indicate a problem , obviously due to floor panels normally being in place I don't know if it moves when in 4wd and 2wd

  11. Can I please clarify something , I'm on the understanding that the front prop turns 100% of the time 2wd or 4wd , is this the case ?, if this is the case I'm hoping that its just carp in the front casing that covers the rods or an issue with the pin or swivel mechanism at the other end of the yellow lever , it is going down but may not be engaging enough . Rear prop currently off but I'm confident that when I put it back on with new ujs that it will at least work in 2wd
  12. have a small update (it's cold outside! ) the yellow plunger does go down and stay , the red stick goes forward ,central and back and is still attached to the rod which it is clearly pushing in and out , I am going to take off the front cover to see if the other 2 rods are moving , just 1 question , is it ok the move 4wd selectors with this cover off ? , I could do without a handful of rods and springs , also what should I be looking for? Does the fact that the red and yellow levers seem to be doing what they should give any clues to my issue ? Thanks
  13. The prop turns but it doesn't move , the gears all select easily but It doesnt go anywhere !
  14. Back propshaft was a bit clunky so I've removed the ujs ( with a hammer and socket ears still ringing) and order 2 new ones , they just appeared a bit loose , free wheeling hubs are locked , I know this because I've already done a circuit of my road .I've put the studs back in x4 on the handbrake drum , could that be a problem , main concern is that I can release clutch in gear ( well I think it's in gear I)and it still doesn't stall , as I say I'm happy that the propshaft was the issue as noise went , however now I can't move it at all ?
  15. Ok , I've had a short-lived success here , I took the rear prop off and the noise has gone so I'm really grateful , there is now a further issues that must be related , I went around the block without issue with prop off in high , now it won't move , front prop turns only in low , however if I put it in gear and lift the clutch it keeps running ! I try to push the red lever forward and it's as if it doesn't realise it's in gear and the prop doesn't turn , I know it doesn't turn because I've got the floor out , Any ideas please ?
