Rear diff noises - update

For those of you that have shown an interest and to bore the rest of
you :) I have just noticed a reasonable amount of play in the rear UJ
on my rear propshaft, which I guess could be contributing to some of
the noise I am hearing!
Time to find a non dealer replacement!
Do any of you have any BSL part numbers that might be handy?

Does the ELCO mail server not broadcast posts back to the originator?
I ask this because while others are seeing what I post, they are not coming back to me, and sometimes I wonder if they get there.
This could, of course, be due to our corporate firewall / spam scanner deciding that I represent a security threat and blocking me out ....

I've had no problems with the UJ's Milner supply.

Julian,
If you are quite certain the noise is caused by the UJ - don't but a cheap UJ!
Get a genuine Toyota UJ that will last. I've bought once a pattern UJ that by
the look of it would not survive a trip to Tesco (they enven didn't bother to
clean swarf from inside the bearings!). Ask Maarten Vershure to send you the
parts. Can't remember the price - ca 70 euro for both ends (?).

Julian,
I had the same problem very recently (when I asked you for part Nos). The other
bit that contributed to transimmsion clunk and also had to be replaced was the
rear diff front and rear bearings.
I am out of office for a day or two so if you are not in a hurry, on return I
could scan the pages from the factory manual and send them to you.

I have yet to pin the noise down (as Gareth has suggested I need to get it up on axle stands, put in drive and then gingerly crawl around underneath to pin it down).
However, when checking the wiring of the rear diff lock actuator, I noticed about .5mm movement on one of the cups of the UJ, which might be the cause.
Cheers,
Julian

Many thanks for the offer, fortunately Haynes covers it quite well.
The actual shaft into the rear diff feels very solid with no noticeable play, so will do the UJ first and will then see what difference that makes.

I did my rear prop UJ's recently, there was minimal play but with the
prop off I could feel the binding in the rearmost UJ as I swivelled the
yoke around. Prior to removing the prop I thought I must have lost some
gear teeth or something because it was making a very metallic
crunching/pinging noise - turns out the prop tube is very tuneful.
Hope it's as simple as a UJ for you.
