Underdesigned? The engineer responsible for that t/c would point to additional torque the ultra low gearing, lockers, and oversized MTs are putting through that $100 pin. What, 2x beyond the t/c's design assumptions? We need our local Ed to figure out the number.
Regardless, it sure looks fun. Kudos.

Im with Greenspan. All 4 engine mounts- I replaced mine though. I would have rather swapped out the tcase for sure.

Well yes...and no. Honestly the obstacle was not that hard, and I certainly wasn't "hammering" on it. I'm slow-and-steady, Huff is the lead foot of the trio . That's why were were all so baffled...it just sort of "stopped". But in reality, the cogs in the tcase should be handling the stress....NOT some stupid 2-piece pin. My thought is Ashcroft redesigned an upgraded replacement for a reason - yet another part that Rover missed the mark on.

But I get it, not everyone out there is overstressing the driveline to this extent. I'm also sure this failure was probably an accumulation of stress over time...it was probably stress cracked and just picked this point to give it up to the ghost.

wait, where were you guys wheeling such that you guys drove to Springfield to pick up an extra t-case and then back, then swapped the t-case on the trail?? Gore to Springfield is a trek!

I mean, there's extreme trail fixes, and then there's a four-hour parts run + extreme trail fixes

It was Gore to Springfield...trust me! That's why I got back at 2am!

I was in difflock on the first obstacle (I use this term loosely) on Trickle. I actually *believe* I had my rear lockers on as well (if I recall). Though...it later was determined that the relay for my ARB was acting up, so it's hard to say for sure if the rear lockers were functioning 100%. But definitely in difflock (never not in difflock when on the trails).

Like Jason said it could hardly be called an obstacle and he wasn't banging on it. It must have been stressed before and that was the last straw.

BTDT, in fact it was at last last conclave. I got a lot of help, but I still think swapping a t-case is harder!

That cross pin is the piece Buck was having issues with right? Think there was a thread about it on here and Pirate IIRC.

Easy Hercules . It's that big first obstacle that you (and just about everyone usually does) take the bypass on!

i am still shocked that you broke the cross pin while in diff lock. that takes the ability to destroy your truck to a different level! you guys definitely deserve an award for trail fix of the year.

actually...on second glance...how is it technically possible for an lt230 to shear just the crosspin while in diff lock? doesn't the splined front output shaft have to fail first?

Most of my Land Rover field repairs where easy. The worst I had was take off the head of the f'ing 4x4 Toyota POS truck in the jungle in Borneo, walk to the nearest logging road, wait for a passing logging truck, get a ride back to Lawas to get the head repaired, repeat in reverse and put the head back on. All while enjoying feeding all the insects for miles around and getting bloody leaches on my legs to boot. This was the easy part, then I had to take a wing off a Twin Otter using Bamboo for scaffolding in this itty bitty jungle strip in Bakaalan further up in the mountains.



Taking off the wing:



Loading it on the now repaired truck to take down the mountain, 8 hours of unbelievably shitty jungle track:

Worse yet who wants to fly on an airplane with a wing that has been repaired in a third world country?

Oh no, not repair in Borneo, can be done, but really slowly. It went in a container back to the US, naturally a 45' container, not a 40'. That would have been too easy. So I had to order that container special and it was late in arriving:



BTW, that isn't mud, it is chicken guts and diesel fuel, mixed with, I don't want to know. I got covered with that shit when the forklift got stuck it in and the spinning wheels liberally coated me the crap. I realized those clothes could never be clean, burn them.
