I picked up a set of Summer's Brothers 30 spline axels with the proper locker/carrier but what I'm trying to sort out is what is the proper stub axel/spindle seal to use. The OEM Land Rover ones are too narrow for these.

I've tried to contact Summers Bros and don't seem to be able to link up with them and they no longer sell the Rover kits.

Any one have experience that can point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Roverware? He sells heavy duty shaft that are oversized, they may just fit. can you measure the inside diameter needed (seal) I guess that would be the axle's diameter

just my .02 worth

good luck!

Probably the easiest way is to measure the id, od, and width you need and just check with a bearing supplier.  Who that would be in Sacramento I'm not sure, but seals are basically generic so if you know the sizes you want they can just look something up.  Many moons ago back in Indiana I had to do this for some project or other but I've long since forgot what that was about.

I believe Bearing Engineering have a place in Sac and they may be able to help.  I used a place just over the San Mateo Bridge, but can't remember their name at the moment. My neighbor's son works there.

Wait - first you said the OEM didn't fit but in the end you got stock stuff to work?  What did I miss?

I didn't push on it much as it's a full float.

The splines are larger than the shaft so when I talked with them they said to push down on it and it should work out fine.

So when I did that it does look like it will, but true test will be if it leaks or not.

Don't worry, if not there I'm sure something else will leak.  ;)

 

I've found my first D1 leak; got a drip on the transfer case now.

Transfer case leak is often the o-ring on the intermediate shaft.  Gotta drop the case to get it but it's not terrible .

 

When are we going to see a finished product Greg?

Parts are arriving Thursday, like to get the new stub shafts installed tonight. Then plan to work on separating the disc from the broken hubs. If I have time I'm going to start working on swapping the rear diff tonight also.

My big push is to get it all done this week and have it going by the end of the weekend.(driving anyway, I'll need to find time to get the compressor and lockers setup afterwards)

Extra help from the wife as she's like to have the garage cleaned up by the time family come next week.

What is broken on the hubs?

Edit. Oh are you still dealing with the broken axle shaft bolts?
