A purchase off ebay, that would seem to have gone wrong? They were described as the Long and short uprated shafts for V8 90, 24 splined? Bonus i thought, just what i need to start sorting the axles out on a budget............. :angry:

Shaft 1

Length = 33" 23 splines one end, 10 splines the other.

Shaft 2

Length = 38" 24 splines either end. No oil seal area?

Yep, they're definitely half-shafts... :lol:

Ah but these have had the Chocolate coating removed for identification purposes :D

I reckon the short one is from a standard 90?

The long one is a Salisbury rear?

Am i correct?

Just looked on the Ashcroft site :rolleyes:

Sorry, can't help. I'm just in a "state the bl**dy obvious" mood this evening <_<

Edited to add: I'd give Ashcrofts a call in the morning if you have no luck. I hear they are jolly helpful chaps.

v8 90 shafts are only £15 each, not worth buying second hand

I can measure my spare set if you like ?

No worries about the measurements, im pretty sure i have identified them now. Cheers to the Ashcroft www.

When asking about V8 90 halfshfts at the local Bearmach shop, they didnt have any details on availabilty :rolleyes:

And remember that proper V8 90 shafts are 24 spline at both ends, so that 10 spline one you've got, aint V8 90 rear!

Yeah i know :rolleyes:

The Auction clearly stated "Brand New 24 Spline V8 90 rear Half shafts" The piccies had rubber covers over the splines like new one have.

Oh well dropped a bo££ock on this purchase :( ...........Gonna have to go through the Eblag process....Bla Bla Bla :angry:

On the upside...............Old Sodbury is on Saturday :)

I bought a V8 shaft from bearmach in west swindon a while back, it was only £19 odd. pretty cheap. and its still running in my Tdi 90 with lockers in, so lasted well.

Looks like thats where i shall be going to in the end? But Old Sodders may turn up something or other? :)

Just been contacted by the seller, all sorted hopefully?

My faith in good honest Land Rover folk has been restored...........
