LR Swivel ball repair - J.B. Weld?


Recommended Posts

Hello HMVF - Has anyone ever tried the J.B. Weld method (plasteel) to repair pitted swivel-balls (swivel pin housing)? I read that it has been done with good results if done right. Read it in 'The Land Rover FAQ' - under swivel ball repair.

Araldite glue can be used as it can be carefully "polished" smooth once set. personally I don't use EP90 but one shot LR swivel grease which is about £7 per tube (side). if it leaks out your seal or chrome ball is totally shot and will need replaced.
