Transfer box seal

Recommended Posts

Not looking forward to this job one bit.  Already lost a nut, far too many bits and bobs for my liking just getting at the stupid seal. And my neck is aching:lol:

nuts are 1/2".............take one off something else...........

It aint strictly lost Simon, I had swept the dust and carp from the workshop floor and left it in a heap below the transfer box. That will catch any oil me thinks, where did the nut fall. Yep somewhere in the middle of heap of dust, swarf and other bits and pieces. :lol:

Land rover oddity having the handbrake drum on the drive shaft. 

You don't half get some rocking back and forth  with the backlash in the drive train.

Think old TK Bedfords had them in the same place, disc though if my memory is correct. There is a Disc replacement kit for Series.

A 1970's  Bedford TK was the first lorry I drove, has little windows low down to give better vision.

Interesting, so when the handbrake is applied it will lock all 4 wheels or is it on the output shaft to the rear?

check air breather a small hole or small hole with a split pin in top of the transfer box is clear sometimes the main gearbox seal fail and push excess oil into transfer gearbox again check breathers       all else change both seals at the same time as about half hour extra to do both seals  inc split transfer from main gearbox  and fit seal after fitting  use carb or brake cleaner from pound shop  on the handbrake shoes/ hub  then put them on a stove to bake them to remove oil residue or fit new and you are good to go       check air breather on main  and transfer gearbox  etc are clear  no more problems also check front and rear axle breathers are clear may save you doing the hub seals in the future

Thanks Saltings,  Gearbox and Transfer box was reconditioned a couple of years back, I think a lot of the problems are they dont make seals like they used to.

Now I dont know what the torque setting is for this nut i havnt looked it up yet, What i can say is, it was barely finger tight. No movement in the tail shaft, that must be a plus.

Got the tailshaft flange off. The oil leak is self evident now, there is a bit of oil seal wear on the shaft.  I have found one listed for 150 quid, I may have to put up with a leak. :lol:. I have also noticed the inner felt seal fitted is the seal for the outer end of halfshafts, it being black on one side. The correct one, is listed as waxed felt seal which is all white.

clean the shaft up and it will be fine..........if it leaks the problem is not the seal on the shaft ....the bearing needs replacing.......................bearing is easy enought to do....oh and check the breather on top of the box..

Good advice ditchman, Its surprising what a bit of fine wet and dry and some metal polish will do.
