Splines

HI,

Looking on making my own halfshafts for my 90, and have put my hands on a book manual that mentions different kind of splines and norms...Didn´t understand if 24 spline LandRover is a "British Standard" norm, or some kind of DIN norm...Any help on this?

Thanks

10 spline on older vehicles

24 spline on newer ones and generally reckoned to be stronger

no idea on "norms" never heard of it!

why make your own? they are available for next to nothing as cheap aftermarket parts and if you want super HD ones then you will probably have a lot of false starts in tempering etc before you get to the level of the likes of Ashcrofts :)

I am aware of spline count...my question is regarding the norm of the 24 splines (spline profile, cut angle, etc)

Off course getting some ashcroft ones would be easier....but not half the fun!

oh I see...

sorry - way over my head then - I can only count to 10 or 24 and as far as I am concerned the spline is the groovy bit in the end and I don't know if it is British or normal or making a din :)

I'll leave you to it then :ph34r:

The 10 spline half shafts have SAE straight sided splines.

The 24 spline half shafts have involute splines. In my limited experience, axles use side fitting, diametral pitch splines, not metric module.

If I get a chance over the weekend, I will measure some and calculate the DP. The pressure angle will be obvious.
