  1. Thanks guys, been going "doo lally" all day..... the annoying thing is, I could have finished it all today.
  2. 1986, 110 front axle.... i don't think a front seal is needed. Is this correct?
  3. Ok guys, I'm finally losing it here 😂 Should I be fitting inner and outer hub seals? I've just scrolled through the forum and many other pages on tinternet. Some say inner and outer, some say inner only and spacer with locking nuts on outer....... The mate has just sent me this.....
  4. I've been working my way through oil leaks and finally managed to stop them, all but one from the transfer box. Could be working it's way down as tychoS said. Give it a clean as best you can, let it run and lay under it. See if you can spot the source, it might be working it's way round the bellhousing down to the area in your picture. Good luck !!
  5. God I must have been tired alright, not only did I put the inner seal on wrong, but the outer too 😳😳 thankfully I managed to go back in today. All is well 😬
  6. Hi Steve, yep the oil in the swivel was again almost non existent.... now has a full compliment of one shot in it. The hub seal also was coated in lovely new grease. 😬
  7. Not off-roading this truck at all unless I'm forced to, to find a good camp site when we're away in the glens. I'd rather do it properly though, 😊👍
  8. Lesson learned..... was knackered after working all day on it...... tiredness mostly and not thinking it through.
  9. Another job to do then..... 🙄
  10. I think I've been sooooo lucky TSD, one of the bearings was slightly deformed and the "grease" was very....... well let's just say I'm not sure it was actually grease 😳😳 The "list" now includes all the other corners pronto...... was very wary of the brake pipe but it was minimal movement so all was good 😊👍
  11. Ok I've bitten the bullet and asking for advice, after watching a tutorial on the fitting of the wheel bearings, I noticed something about the way the hub oil seals should be fitted. FRC8222 and FTC4785. I'm not sure 100% mine are on the same way. How crucial is this?? Will I need to take everything back off again to make sure? 😔😔😔
  12. Oft !! I'm glad I got in when I did, no trips planned for a bit yet, so next weekend the other side gets done....... er...... er...... then the back ones by the look of these
  13. Just thought I'd share my LONG day with you all and feeling quite chuffed..... i think i got in here just in time....
  14. Anything more on this?
