Lt77 shaft wear?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm looking for some opinions on the wear of my output shaft on the gearbox.

It's by no means as bad as some of the pictures I've seen on here. I have my transfer box in bits to repair the difflock selector, and will be ordering the rebuild kit as well as a cross drilled input gear for the lt230.

With the transfer box input gear on the rear of the box I have about 2mm play, however if I reverse the input gear so the "unworn" side of the spline engages on the gearbox I have very little (less than 1mm) play. Buying 2nd hand is a lottery, so rebuild or refurb are my options if its needed. . With a cross drilled input gear fitted will the wear on the gearbox shaft be minimised? It's a "H" suffix box.

Any thoughts or opinions appreciated.

Just clean it up and fit a cross drilled input gear. That wear isnt really anything to worry about. Make sure the gear you buy has the bearings fitted as well.

So long as you are happy with the little extra slack in the drive train I'd happily run that, then eventually replace the box when something else goes wrong with it :)

That looks pretty good. I;d do as above and run with that - it will go on a good number of years yet, especially with a crossdrilled input gear fitted.

I have a spare input gear (with bearings fitted) sat in the garage - if its any use, drop me a PM.

Thanks guys. A new cross drilled gear and transfer box rebuild kit is on its way from ashcrofts as we speak. Thanks for the offer Reb
