Axle Identification

Postby tecnick » Wed Jun 09, 2010 6:46 pm

As my motor is a bit of a 'bitza' I'm not sure what front axle I have.

The brake caliper is the pin type not the spring type but that is where my knowledge ends. Is there any other outward signs to give me more information. I need to replce the CV's and possibly the diff.
How can I tell how many splines it has.
Can you tell without taking hub apart which CV's to buy.

Cheers Nick
If it ain't broke, I'd be bloody suprised.

prize the rubber end cap off the drive flange and count how many splines it has.

if its a 24 spline CV, both the defender and disco non abs cv is part number TDJ000010 on paddocks website.

Great Thanks, I did that last night but wondered if it may not correspond all the way to the diff as well.

Guess it does.

sorry for my last - should have said they all have 24 splines at the drive flange........
my bad


AEU2522 - 23/24 wide pre' 200TDI 10 spline diff
RTC6862 - 32/24 wide 200TDI 24 spline diff
TDJ000010 - 32/24 narrow 300TDI til current. 24 spline diff

easiest way to tell is the drive flange itself. If its a big beefy wide flat affair - then its an early 24 spline RTC6862 or 10 spline AEU2522.
if its a more fine looking moulded flange like this - then its TDJ part

just thought, if its the later style thin cv they should be the same as the ones in your disco, as i think your disco was a 300tdi.... in which case you can use them. part numbers for disco, rangie and defender narrow CVs are all TDJ000010

Nick, if its already a bitza, why not use the complete disco axle? It will probably take the same length of time but won't cost you anything!

depends if them there radius arm bolts come out.
i ended up cutting 3 of the 4 bolts to get my arms off the front axle when i rebushed it. 2 of those then needed a bar welding to the bolt head so i could give them some wollop with tool no.1 to get em out.
:evil:
major pain in the proverbial.

I always drop them off at the chassis and roll the axle out with them on.
Uncle gas axe normally coaxes the bolts out. Alternatively just swap the lot over from the Disco.

Did think of that as I have the full axle and spare cvs for it. Do the steering links not go a different route, not got disco on drive to look at you see.

Axles mounts and steering are the same, the only thing you have to do is bin the damper off the drag link at the back as it is mounted on the front steering bar on a 90.
