Cv Joint

Hi Julian
Today was going to be spent with Mik in Mayo working on my CV joint. Well
that was the plan at least untill we had a case of my bad luck and guess
what. Yes your right the CV is knackered as is the Drive plate. The splines
on both have just about had it, loads of bits of metal to be seen every
where and no sigh of any grease any where on the outer bit of the CV. We
did'nt go any futher as there was no point.
Heres the question that i know you have the answer to. Is there is a little
c clip at the end of the drive shaf, and if so do you really need it and can
you explain how to replace it . I know there are three bits to the question
but its still only one question. So now I have to get this done pronto. Ill
sourse the bits from Milner tomorrow morning I think, if there delivery time
to me is not too long, I reakon they will be cheaper than Toyota by a mile.
Thanks again

Hi John,
Sorry to hear about that.
There is a small snap ring on the end of the driveshaft to hold it into the CV
joint and yes you do need it. Unfortunately you can't get it from Milners so
will have to get if from Toyota PNC# 43411C and Part Number 90521-24005 for
your VIN.
To seperate the driveshaft from the CV joint, either hod the driveshaft with a
vice with the CV below the vice and then hit the CV with a brass hammer/drift
or get a bit of scaffolding pole and drop the driveshaft into it.
Occasionally you can end up with the snap ring coming off intact, but not
often. If you get stuck trying to find one, ask the local agric engineers or
similar because they may have an equivalent.
Since you are going that far in replace all the seals (use the Milner seal kit
@ ?32), but do get the genuine Toyota inner axle seal (PNC# 43411D Part
No:90310-35010), it appears to be a lot more reliable than the Milner one.
If you ever have questions like this whilst working on the car, don't hesitate
to call on my mobile, many do.
Good luck.

Hey Julian
Thanks a million. I was just wondering how you get that snap ring on the end
of the shaft. Sorry but if you bang it off to get the old snap ring off,
how do you get the new one to stay on that shaft while putting it into the
CV.
Its better to be discovered now that a few hundred miles or more from home
is it not.
So once its done it should see another 13 years or more with tender loving
care.
I gave Mik the discs and he will see if he can get them to work, thanks for
the part NOs.
Do you still have the download parts version available from your server. Ah
will yea stop I cant be bothering you when I get stuck, sure the phone bill
would run into hundreds of euro and where would the joy of being able to
feel ones blood pressure rise and the thoughts of O shit will I get home
from Mayo go.
Thanks

Hi Sorry to butt in,
"I was just wondering how you get that snap ring on the end

the
CV."
You put the snap ring on before putting the shaft in to the CV. Going in
the
Shaft and CV have tapers to compress the snap ring gently. Once its
trough, the inside back faces of the CV and shaft have sharp vertical
retaining faces to stop it coming out. Best analogy I can think of at
present, is it like a barbed fishing hook. Easy to go in hard to get
out.

Hey Rob
There is no such think as butting in on the list. I want and indeed need as
much imput as everyone else does, when needed and I think its great that
others are willing to give. Thanks for the info, once iv done it a few times
it will be easier I think.

I can't fault the reliability of the 4 Milner seals I've fitted, I think
there's something else wrong with the trucks that have problems with
these fitted.
Best Regards,
Jon.

Hi Jon,
Thanks for the tyres and coffee - good to see you again and meet the
family.
If you put the Milner seal next to the Toyo one there a couple of key
differences.
The Toyo one has a metal outer, not that makes much difference, and it also
has a marginally tighter and more flexible inner hole so that it can
provide a better seal if you have a lot of movement in the driveshaft or if
the driveshaft is slight worn.
As a result the perceived wisdom is that best to go for Toyo ones. For the
?8.50 per side cost I would rather go for the Toyota one when working on
someone elses TLC going off to Africa or one that isn't likely to get
touched for a while, but if I had a battle waggon like yours I wouldn't
necessarily bother.

As a rule the parts on the 94 need to be as robust as possible because
of the abuse it gets and lack of timely maintenance.
Both the 93 & 94 have done a lot of miles on Milner seals without
problems ...
Best regards,
Jon.
