Swivel Ball Bonanza!

So, what started out to be a simple swap turned into a mess and I ended up with a bunch of surplus parts, both New and Used.

First off, I have a set of New Teflon Coated Swivel housings that came as a complete kit. They ended up being incorrect for my use, and I didn't want to go through trying to return them. The swivel balls were mounted and races installed for the pins, but the axles were never installed. I went to install the housings and realized that I ordered the wrong swivel ball kits and the top pin was incorrect. These include the Swivel Balls themselves, New Bearing Races, New Bearings, New Pins, New Shims, New Metal Seal Retainers, One Shot Grease and New Seals/Gaskets. As I mentioned, they were mounted to the axle housing for about an hour, so you probably want to get a new gasket for that but everything else is there and new. These will fit 94/95 D90, they will also fit the 97 or 93 110 but you will need to reuse/replace the top pin/bushing. I found out afterward that the difference is really only that the ABS style use a bushing and larger diameter pin in the top rather than just a bearing race and tapered bearing. (Had I known at the time, I would have used these) How about $450 shipped Conus for the pair? The Swivel Ball alone retails for app. $600ea (I don't know, make me an offer, I don't have a use for them immediately and I don't want to keep moving them around the shop.)

Second, I have the original Chrome Swivel Balls off my NAS 110. I can take pics of these tonight, one is great, I don't think there are any pits, the second has a fair amt. of pitting, but it is all above the center line and wasn't causing any leaks when removed. I thought about repairing these for future use, but I just have too many projects and if someone can put them to use, so be it! Make offer on these please.

I know someone needs these...make an offer, I promise, I won't be insulted! haha I really just want these out of here and to see them go to good use. I'll get some pics of both later tonight, but like I said, the one set is brand new, the second probably isn't worth much, but if someone has a use, I'll send them on for shipping plus beer money?

Has anybody fitted these to a 1980s ROW 110? Wondering what parts would need to be swapped out.

Here are pics of the new ones (one of the two anyway). Both are identical, I forgot to mention, I painted the backs of the pins and bases of the swivel balls black and cleared the metal seal retainers to prevent future rust.

More pics...here are the originals, one is in great shape, the other has pitting above the oil level, doesn't not leak, would be a good spare or candidate for an attempted rebuild.

By the way, I know people have powder coated and por15'd these but has anyone tried repairing with jbweld and having them Teflon coated? Should work since the new ones are...I wouldn't have thought of it except the machine shop doing my engine is Coating the piston skirts and it just occurred to me they could probably do these too.

Yes, I spoke with Pendy about it and he said that others had powder coated them and that the seals left indentations over time with it parked, but the POR15 seems to be holding up. I just thought, sending them out saves some work and the teflon should hold up great, plus it wasn't all that expensive to do pistons so I doubt the swivel balls will be much more, it was just an idea I thought I would float.

In other news, I'd really like to move these all long and am open to offers on either set, just let me know what you're thinking.

I had some mixed experiences with POR-15 treatment on the swivel balls, but there were other variables involved. See the thread here: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ghlight=Swivel

Looking at current prices and exchange rates, how about $250 shipped conus for the new ones. Anyone have a use for the take-offs? Make offer.

Thank you!
