It's all about you isn't it Mike? That will have to wait till I have the front end on. One thing at a time. I have a plan though, possibly a great plan. The only possible thing that could get in my way is physics.

No no no, this thread is about you & your truck

My 90 died & D'Ho clutch slip is about me
Anyway those axles look awesome. do they have CV joints or UJs?

Don't let a little physics get in the way of a cunning plan..... whats the worst that could happen?
The universe implodes?

I didn't think UJs were so good with permanent 4WD. won't the steering wheel jump about on full lock?

No, thats a total myth started by the Global Warming believers. Joking aside, I have no idea where that came from but there is no truth to it at all. Besides, I do not have Rover ends anymore which means I will have selectable locking hubs. I can run in 2wd and 4wd. The bummer with this is that in 2wd I will feel the effects of the rear detroit that I could not tell I even had before.

Hey Tis,

Where in the axle did KC mount the oil seal? I may have found out the true cause for the leak issue.

Huh? If there isn't one how can you see it in person?

I have a 1.4 LT230. Hopefully soon to be a 1.2.

Keith, seals are coming out to you.

David- they sit near the outer ends of the axle, just inside the "C". I'm pretty positive it is the axle shaft oscillation created by the ujoint, particularly during turns, that is causing the leak.

What is your theory?

Tiz,

I was talking to builder about this again and he said he know exactly what the cause is. The seal is supposed to be mounted 3in from the diff on either side. What is happening is when the axle osilates on the turn it moves like .020 on the diff end and .200 on the U-Joint end. Basically, they were put in the wronge place. But, that Gasket might still work. Keith, I need to talk to you!!!

Ah that osilation will be due to the UJs not having a constant velosity when the road wheel has some turn on it.
The steering wheel on my IIA used to fight a bit on high traction surfaces in 4WD and I was told that this was due to the UJs in the front axle. Not a huge issue and not noticable 99% on the time.

So when you're on the road the transfer box will be in dif lock and the front hubs will be disengaged = read drive only?

More Update Pics

Coming along well now. The steering is left and there is some work to be done on the track bar but the hub is basically together with the new Rover bolt pattern. The new wheels clear those big old calipers by almost nothing. I like the stance, about an .75 in on each side wider than the rear.

Oh, and Mike, I did all the measurements and the intercooler option will not fin on mine because of the winch. There just is no room left to make a decent sized one fit the way I had intended. For you guys that have no winch in there, it would work fine. I can post up where and what to buy if you want. I have to go with a direct replacement to it looks like Twisted Performance in the UK is going to get too much of my money.

Particularly with the exchange rate at the moment.
Bad for you. good for us if we want to import ftuff from the US.
I'd be interested in the intercooler details that you couldn't get to fit.
Not the one that was too big though

Those wheels/calipers look really heavy duty

Nice work on the truck. But what I realy like is the car lift the truck is sitting on. I would give my left nut to have the space and money to put one of those in. You look like you are out near Santee from the looks of the boulders in the background.

Very close, Ramona. Not my lift though, of course.

Mike, the intercoolers I was going to run are either standard E-bay fair or;

www.bellintercoolers.com
http://www.fluidcontrol.net/pages/faxspecs.html

These would both work depending on what you build around 120% better than the euro models.
