Hi All, Currently rebuilding a disco td5 LT230T with an Ashcrofts Master Rebuild Kit. I'm at the stage of putting things back together following the manual. I've constructed the centre diff (all the same parts apart from the copper dome washers and the fibre thrust washers. As soon as I start to tighten the bolts up to clamp the housing together, I'm no longer able to freely turn the gears inside using the front output shaft. It requires a bit of force. The manual suggests that if it's too loose I need to use thicker washers. It doesn't suggest what to do if it's too stiff. Having measured the thrust washers the old ones were 1.35mm where as the new ones at 1.05mm. If i pop the old ones back in everything turns smooth. Should I get replacement washers at 1.35mm or should 1.05mm be right? Thanks Thomas
I have a 300 tdi that has done 320,00 ks.. I have fitted two rebuilt diff which got rid of a stack of gear noise. I can now here the last gear noise from the gearbox or transfer case. I need some help with knowing what to rebuild. I suspect it is the transfer case and i can hear the gear noise in 3,4 and 5th gear. The noise quietens when I decelerate and is most loud under a light load at 100k/hr. I correct with my assumption that because I can hear the noise in 3,4 and 5th it is not the gearbox. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Peter
