Angry stuck in knoxville, TN

I was on my way to Fort Knox for training this morning, and my right front bearings seized up on me just outside Knoxville. I'm at Land Rover Knoxville now, and after much effort, they have been able to pull the spindle and axle. looks like the cv axle shaft (stupid 10 spline) broke, causing a chain reaction. the remainder of the axle shaft is froze inside the spindle, and if they can't come up with a quick part source, anybody know the quickest wayt to get a replacement CV shaft and spindle? I'm supporting to report for duty tomorrow morning, and I'm guessing I'm hosed.

Fedex from RDS. I guess you probably wont arrive with the truck, probably better to rent a car than FTR.

Pull the front axle apart, Put new bearings on with a lot of grease on the old spindle, lock the diff and drive there in 2wd.

It will make it.

PS you can press the axle out of the spindle.

Yeah, if TNL can't help you out, then the 2WD route is the way to go assuming they can get it apart. In fact, that might be worth it anyway, you can swing by TNLR and get the parts if they have them and take care of it at Fort Knox.

so for the 2wd option, is it just pulling off the driveshaft or do both axles have to be pulled?

you may want sleeve the axle with a piece of PVC pipe and put it back together. It wouldn't rattle around as much and won't scrape the inside, just the PVC it sits in.

Pull the front driveshaft out. and lock the diff in High so all the power goes to the rear wheels.

Here I am worried about a guy making it to formation when there are still perfectly good roadside repairs to attempt

Thanks all, but I wouldn't consider it roadside repairs at this point. The wheel actually seized, and inspection revealed the outer locking nut, and races welded to the spindle. they got those out, but the outer half of the cv shaft broke and is seized in the spindle, and they can't get it out (allegedly).

I haven't personally looked at a '93, and don't have my '93 manuals here, but I would, if possible, disconnect the front propshaft and pull the front axle shafts. The only thing I'm not sure of is if not having the axles in would cause any other issues. But I think it would be ok. By "spindle" I assume you mean the stub axle, that the hub nuts go on. A new/used stub axle should be pretty easy to find locally I would think, especially if they are the same as my D90. A D1 stub axle would work I think.
I just took a look, http://www.tntlr.com/axles.htm and it looks like he has front axles, but OUCH! on the price.
He also has the stub axle. Listed anyway.

Thanks all. Rovers North has parts on the way. RN and Bill at TLR couldn't get anything to Knoxville until Monday, so I'll have to rent and come back for it next week. 24 spline upgrade is moving up quickly in the que.

I know Tom the manager at LR Knoxville and my dad buys from him and has his 90 serviced there all the time. If you need any pull with them let me know. Good luck.

Mark if you want to go 24 spline you should maybe think about replacing the spindles to the later style. This may be the time to change out depending what CV's and inner axles you want to run. If you call I'll try harder not to miss your call this evening. I have the stock needed parts here also, used. But not all of the newer style bits needed. Might as well go vented rotors now as well. Thinking out loud here.

Pendy,
I really appreciate it, but the parts from RN are already on there way to LR Knoxville. I'm in training for 14 straight days from 7am-10pm, and I still have to find time to do the 10 hour round trip to drop off this rental and pick my rig up and return in the next few days.

If this happened back in Charlotte, I would have towed it home, and done the conversion myself, as home this is not a hard job. It KILLS me that I"m spending $1200 to repair 1 wheel with 10 spline crap, (I could have gotten an ARB and 24 spline conversion parts for not much more) but this is my 1 shot to get this required schooling out of the way so I can make Major before going back to the sandbox. I retire right after we come back in 2010, so it just sucks.

LR Knoxville proved to be a very good service dealership though, for what it's worth.

I'm going to make out the parts list later this week if I get the time with Keith, and just start gathering over the next few months until I have enough to do it. Or just wait until 2010.

When is this frigin' war going to end? It's really interfering with my Land Rover experience.
