Recommended Posts

have a look in the tech archive for some pics etc

the D2 one is ok but doesn't last long and is not fully rebuild-able.

the output flange on the Transfer box is bigger for the D2 prop.part number STC4379 £40ish

I had a bespoke prop made at the propshaft clinic in Bradford

fully grease-able/rebuild-able. cost £250 ish IIRC

the propshaft clinic one uses the standard flange on the Transfer box

thanks White, yes i already saw those threads, and i already have the D2 prop.

Why do you say it doesnt last long? surely its stronger than the std single spider unit?

anyway thanks for the flange part number.

but are your failures something unusual? due to hard use or lift.

my original prop has not failed, i'm just trying to cure the occasional overun vibration.

surely these D2 units run for ages on a std D2, no?

Mine didn't have a very hard life maybe 4 events and 2000 road miles

the D2 prop will cure you vibration on overrun for sure

just keep an eye on it as you can't grease the UJ at the T box end.

and D2 props are sold in numbers so they don't last too long.

the propshaft clinic can rebuild them but the cost was nigh on 1/2 the cost of a brand new one so I opted for that.

It is a good mod for the problem but it didn't turn out to be a long lasting one in my case.

the flange kits were in short supply when I wanted one and I sold it on again on here not to long ago.

D44 had them at the keenest price when I wanted one

I was chatting to a guy here in Swindon that does prop balancing. he says that the toyota hilux uses a double cardon prop, and it's bulletptoof, and greasable, and repairable.

I've got one from Equippe4x4 in italy on mine, a great bit of kit. that too uses a D2 front flange.

Yes, the toy double cardon is very good. Reasonably easy to clearance for large angles as well.
