Thanks, I will just fit the ones that I have, if they work.
I damaged the plastic gear that sits between the diff and bearing (crown wheel?) Rimmer bros is struggling to find the part. The one off diesel box has 26 teeth and the one off of the t16 box has 23. Can I simply replace the entire gear assembly from the t16, without the speedo being thrown off?
I think Rimmer Bros sent the wrong seals. They are the right diameter and thickness, but they dont have the metal cover nor really any lip, so it does not look like there is anything to keep it place. I did try to remove the metal cover from the seal on, but it is rather stuck on and I cant think that is correct. What do you think?
The two diff berings, 6208. I went to the bearing shop and they wanted something like £41 plus vat and shipping per bearing. I would have no quibbles for £20 each, because that is what I expected them to cost. Where do you get your bearings?
I received a price for some steel caged bearings and there is a £30 per bearing price difference from standard. Ok, I know that the OE bearings are rubbish. However, I am kinda thinking that there is no gearbox issues and we dont see many bearing failures, so is it a bit over kill to buy the steel caged bearings?
However, then there is the issue of the LSD and the additional strain and this might be enough to put it over the limit.
