    yep I like a clean bill of health at wof time

    but have a funny crunching sound in the front right hub when in 4wd, and confirmed when there was 3 skid marks on the ground after trying to move the caravan with the brakes on
    how hard is a CV to change on these things, my workshop manual is in storage ..... but I do have some more tools at home now( well in the back of the ute). but do need more axle stands as mine are holding the caravan up......

    The CV isn't hard, you just have to know how to do it. There is a snap ring on the end of the shaft that is similar to the one on the end of my impact wrench. It compresses. To get it off, you whack it with a hammer and it will come off the splines on the end of the shaft. Might be easier to get a new shaft. There is a tool that you use to compress the band to hold the boot on. Some of the boots I have priced are as much as a shaft. Go figure

    well have aquired a roof rack for the jeep but needs a mod or two so have made a start on modifing that..... to be finshed later

    Have been battling with a water leak after much looking and thinking,changed the bottom radiator hose clamp which seemed to fix it but nope got that brassed off and went to pull the radiator out today undid most of the bolts that secured it in went to remove the expansion tank hose from the radiator it was B^&^%Y split so reassembled everything, went for a drive and my leak has gone away ........

    as for the front CV it's still busted can't rush these things.

    Till next time
