    Either this or the FFR......

    I have some friends in Springhurst that we normally stay with when we come up to Corowa. They want me to get the GS finished so that they can travel inside for the parade so I'll have to see.

    Slowly assembling the front axle until I hit a problem..... One of the driveshafts wouldn't fit back into the axle housing, either the splines not fitting into the diff or the bearing not matched......After some investigation the problem was resolved.

    I have a number of long & short front driveshafts that have been salvaged from a several different axles. They either have rust damaged inner axle bearing or rust damaged seal collar (or both !). I found a long driveshaft with a good inner bearing track and seal collar but didn't think about the mating part of the axle bearing ! Not good practice to mix & match bearing components but as most of them were Hoffman I thought it would be OK.
    Turns out that Hoffman & SKF were used, the bearing external dimensions are controlled but the diameter of the inner race that the rollers bear on is different between manufacturers.

    A lot of bearing outers have been thrown out due to rust damage but I managed to find one that fitted and drifted out the one in the swivel housing and refitted the replacement. In future as a shaft is removed i'll have to write the bearing manufacturer on the shaft unless I'm replacing the bearing.

    A few swivels either being repaired or ready to throw away (any usable bearings will be kept).
