I heard that they mounted the wheel station to a support rig and then fitted the vehicle to the wheel station. :cool2:   trevor

Hi there if you embrace the discipline of reversing 2 vehicle lengths after you have been driving on the road you will preserve the rest of your tracta joints and bevel gears.   You will save yourse

Any help greatly appreciated

 

is the shaft damaged too, or just the hub side....I can recommend that you lower the suspension (wind the torsion bar down) to make the drive shafts level, it will come down quiet a bit as much as 2 or three inches if I remember right, this will reduce the risk of the tracta joints spinning out of the hubs and doing the damage you now find, its because they were meant to be carrying 5 tons of gear in the back not empty as most of the time they are these days...when in the extreme travel the joints are barely making contact and all it would take is one jerk of the throttle...happened to mine, all my torsion bars now lowered to let her run fairly neutral when on the road...

I would say its well broken....and I bet you could hear nothing....I am sure I heard mine break as I was driving along, mind you when the rod went through the side of the block that was a more sincere bang,...no doubting something had broken, can you believe she was still running for a bit even with a rod out the side...

this is where the oil stain is

 

 

hmm was this on the inside of the wheel...it could be from a brake hub as it sort of works its way around the hub/drum and drips into the wheel because of the wheel stations camber...there is usually a bit of a trail to it though, especially if it has been sitting, but it will show up if you pump the brakes with the wheel off...

I don't think its brakes... I'm not that lucky!

But any thoughts greatly appreciated

 

its a really odd place for oil....I would check out everything from oil leaks to oil dripping out of the cab, the stuff comes from the strangest of places, but if there is nothing from anywhere else than a hub is the likely cause...but you can't guarantee it at all
