Propshafts

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

The rear propshaft on the 90 has given up the ghost.

I could just get a straight replacement - it's a Tdi mounted to a LT77.

Would a TD5 shaft fit? I have heard that they offer a bit more movement on the UJs before they bind.

And would there be any benifit in fitting a double cardon shaft?

Si

I guess a Td5 one would fit as long as the engine is mounted in the same place as a 300Tdi/R380 would be - which is different to where a 200Tdi/LT77 is normally mounted.

The front Td5 shafts have bigger UJ's which may have a better amount of movement (don't know) but as far as I know the back propshafts are exactly the same as a 300Tdi back propshaft. Quite why the front was upgraded and not the back is one of those things that obviously made sense to somebody at LR at the time.....

I realised I had posted on the wrong one when I read the second one and thought "hmm this question seems familiar" :lol:
