    HD shafts or flanges never wear. It is just the stock junk stuff.

    The joys of grease filled wheel bearing hubs vs oil filled.

    As Dave said, the old oiled ones never wore at the splines, but they would snap axles just as easily as the later ones.

    Go for the X flange and shaft

    The flanges flog out due to a lack of lubrication. A known problem for grease filled hubs. Older Landies used the diff oil to lube the wheel bearings. Change the grease seals to double lipped oil seals and knock the seal in the axle tube that goes around the axle shaft out. This will provide lube to your splines as well as the wheel bearings. When I did this modification I used the Maxidrive heavy duty axle shafts and flanges the ones with the “X” in the part number have a longer spline for more engagement and reduced pressure per length unit of spline. These are the parts https://www.allfourx4.com.au/Drive-F...market-HTE859X and they mention the fact the that flange has to be used with the matching shaft.

    Look up oil lubed wheel hubs and you will find a lot written on the topic.

    I do recall reading a while ago that lot of perenties already had maxi drive shafts fitted by the army?

    nope.

    oh By the by....


    remember when getting flanges that there are old spec ones and new spec one,s the new spec ones have a wider flange on the inside and will not fit inside the hub.

    yes photos and measurements to come.

    yes I did waste an hour and a bit at work pulling all four rear flanges off of Arkie only to find that I had forgotten this.

    Yes, I've been here before.
