AVM Freewheel hub broken (series III 109) new one or back to stock?

Recommended Posts

One of my AVM feewheel hubs (on my newly acquired vehicle) is locked in both settings (4x4 and 4x2) while the other works jut fine.

Also it seems it has been abused (broken open with a chisel is seems) and glued back together....

Since a new pair costs ~250 Euro's I'm wondering if it would be cheaper and easier to go back to normal hubs...

1. you thoughts on AVM freewheel hubs

2. anyone a partlist for what I would need to replace a AVM with standard stuff?

Throw the AVMs in the bin, IMHO they are a waste of time. Without looking at a parts list, you'll need drive members, nuts, split pin and end cap, all fairly cheap.

drive flange is a drive member I assume?

Nuts and splitpin are already there. (the one that requires a special tool but usually can be opened easily with something else + de splitpin that goes trough.)

My AVMs broke so I reverted to normal drive flanges. 100% reliable on and off road now. Cheap and quick to do and....I honestly didnt detect an increase in fuel consumption.Also,now I know the upper trunnions are getting some lubrication.

I've also returned to stock, hardest thing was to beak open the old hubs as the allen key screws where messed up.

Not so long ago I came across a single 23 spline AVM hub on eblag for very little £.

Needed it for my X-Deflex ARB that I bought second hand. The PO had taken it apart and lost all the innards!

Like you say they are rather spendy for a new pair, especially if you only want one.

If anyone is interested :)
