has anyone ever found a link to a repair manual for a 32 spline air locker ARBRD64 (or indeed any model) ?
I have combed the 'net to no avail and will have to tackle this if and when I get the parts
Thanks Jon - the exploded diagram is better than nothing (and I have the original installation manual too) but I am really after more details if poss - have you (or anyone else) ever stripped down an ARB? At this stage it is all conjecture, as I have a long time to wait for the parts! I will also ask the ever helpful Devon 4x4 who are supplying the parts. Between that and my "ggrrrr ggrrrr" noise making truetrac front I am a bit fed up with after market traction aids.
I got this off the net somewhere: www.mudtoys.com/manuals/2-RD64.pdf but from what I can remember it's no more detailed than the printed documents that came with the ARB What's wrong with yours then? I've not been any deeper than fitting the ARB carrier to my diff I'm afraid but how hard can it be to strip
I don't know what is wrong with it but I suspect a seal (the O rings) or the copper pipe... When actuated it just vents air out the axle breather and won't lock.
Haven't opened the diff yet as I don't really want to go through all that until I have the parts. The o ring carrier is going to take a while to arrive though. But you are right - how hard can it be
hopefully the hardest thing will probably be getting hold of a dial gauge!
I'd check the seal at the case fitting before taking the diff off if you haven't already? The little o-ring in there is quite a common failure and doesn't need the diff taking off to change. Did you fit the ARB yourself?
Yup - fitted myself...
However I firmly believe it is not a fitting issue as it worked fine for 30K kilometres and then just started. Then again maybe!
The small seal I did check, as I really didn't want to do all that palaver with cone washers and heavy lifting. I will just get on with it when I receive my parts. Stupid amount of dismantling though for what is probably a tiny bit of rubber or whatever. Thanks anyways chaps.
