Absolutely. At the moment I can only find replacement cutters in America at a cost of £250 ouch regards Stephen

Just to add to this I have been checking out tool cutter grinders, how expensive are they really only havnt got one as yet because you can buy a lot of cutting tools for several hundred quid and of course I've only had my milling machine for a couple of years and my lathe two years longer, both of which were bought to assist with mog axle conversion, not that I'll be getting rid of them once the axles are finished lol Regards Stephen

They are convenient to have around for when you have a blunt cutter at the weekend and no spares. I'm sure you'd find lots of strange used for a Clarkson, just make sure you get one with most of the tooling, that can be expensive to pick up afterwards.

what a great build this is . if you ever start offering the diff shortening as a service I would definitely be interested.  

I've 2 mog axle builds on the go . and have done a sumb axle build before

We need pictures of these builds, lots of pictures!! Start a new topic and put them in this modified forum please.
I have a sumb axle build ongoing and always looking for inspiration.

I third a build thread, I find Facebook disjointed and generally horrible for build threads. Unless you know someone or happen across one it's hateful and even then you'll never find it a second time.

what are you doing with your front axle ? are just using it upside-down and putting another diff drain in or are you cutting and shutting the axle casing ? 

cheers

Not doing the upside down thing I'm going to swap the axle tubes ( cut and shut ) regards Stephen

How does the pinion shaft splines compare to the half shaft splines? What major and minor diameters are they? You need to make new short shafts to move the front diff over?

Pretty similar however I will measure tomorrow and feed back

Short half shaft wise I have a new one with extended splines that may do the job I will be taking a closer look shortly regards Stephen

What a load of rubbish I speak sorry

So half shaft major diameter is 41.32 mm minor diameter is 36 mm. Pinion major diameter is 37.5 mm and minor is 32 mm

Picture of them side by side

This is the extended splines shaft for the short side, this is what came with the axles when I bought them and is used when flipping the front axle which of course I'm not doing regards Stephen

Yay !! 
 

I get the sulking - I’ve just ticked off 5 jobs well done and then made a right hash of bending up my brake reservoir pipe, I’m sulking about that but bloody happy about the others.

Split into manageable chunks

Researched diff removal this time it has to go 90 degrees to the left then it lifts out a doddle
