    I get around 12 l/100km which is around 8 km/l

    In 4x4H that goes up a bit to 6-7 km/l and in 4x4L it doubles.

    Like I always say, a 4x4 does not need a odometer, it needs an hour meter as used on machinery. 400k km on a 4x4 is IMHO around 800k km with a platkar in terms of wear and tear.

    I went to fetch the repaired gearbox input shaft today. I must say Loftie Deyzel of Robbie Deyzel Engineering did a great job.

    He first hard chromed it and then cut the shaft to an exact slide fit that still grips the inside of the bearing well.

    Thanks Loftie!





    It is this end in case you wondered!

    I have also ordered the new propshaft components from Coetzparts.

    I was checking the gearbox bearings today and one makes a horrible noise. So I went to the local SKF agent to find replacement bearings. In my opinion these bearings should run in the gearbox oil and not be sealed units only lubricated by the grease they came with. What is the correct option? Remove the inner bearing seal and keep the external seal?

    There was a discussion somewhere about this.
    IIRC consensus was to modify the bearing as you suggest.

    Thanks for the reply @4eTouareg. Would be interesting to read this discussion. It just makes sense to have all the lubrication in the world available and frequently renewed instead of being stuck in this world of abundant lubrication with your own small non-renewed tiny bit of lubrication.

    This is what I like about you and your work, you usually go for the fix it myself than the replace/somebody else's problem route.

    I searched the Internet, and the concern (on many discussions) is that steel shavings from the transmission could enter the bearing, if it is not sealed.

    Well then you'd only get splashed oil on that bearing, so you may as well use both seals and grease the sucker...........

    A box arrived today!






    The new propshaft components are here!







    The next step is to get these two parts fixed with a torqued bolt or some form of fixing device. I will go to Loftie tomorrow and have a chat with him.







    The next step then will be to machine a flange to bolt the yoke to the double cardan joint.





    Now onto finding bearings and oil seals. Anyone knows of someone coming from Spain or the UK to SA as I can get parts from www.euro4x4parts.com ?

    Today I went to Loftie and discussed what must be done. The new flange must be made to more or less the same as that is on found on the rear differential.










    The flange will have to be 118mm in diameter to match with the new double cardan joint bolt holes. Let's see what he can come up with.



    While measuring the sleeve diameters we found another big issue. ... --- ...

    The bush in the transfer case is worn.








    If you know of a supplier of white metal bushes then please let me know. The sizes I am looking for is 39mm ID, 42-45mm OD and length of 40-45mm.

    I see Toyota has a part number 90999-73105 which could work if I can determine the dimensions. Maybe someone has access to this info and can let me know?

    So we keep hacking away to find a solution and fix the broken bits!

    No, do NOT remove the seals from the bearings. The seals are not intended as oil seals but rather dirt seals. When I am replacing bearing in a gearbox, I normally remove the seals, wash the grease out, clip one seal back in, fill the bearing with gearbox oil and clip the other seal back in place. Much of that oil seeps out while fitting though.

    This is not an issue as oil from the gearbox will creep into the bearing to keep it lubricated, but the seals keep the small metal bits out of the bearing.
