ln65 front driveshaft play - missing plug

Postby stealth » Sun Jun 11, 2017 7:07 am

Hey team

My ln65 fail wof due to excessive play in front driveshaft. it appears to have no grease in it but when I start filling it up it just comes staight out the shafts near the uni rather than travelling towards the slip join, I'm wondering do these have a bung (like a frost plug type) in the end of the shaft? does anyone know?

or

Is this a must replace one or both half of the driveshaft jobs?

t.i.a

yeah they have a plug in the end, if they get overfilled with grease they can hydraulic the plug put as the slip joint compresses, time for a replacement driveshaft if its failed on excessive play in the spline

anyone know the best way to get a replacement?

Im guessing they are very expensive new... can you buy the part that has slopped out? or is 2nd hand the best bet?
