Chances are Paul the centre of the grinding wheel is your issue. Stabbing in the dark having not seen it
yeah the center of the wheel ain't exactly precise or smooth. I remounted it several times till it no longer sways sideways, tried the redresser to reduce most of the undulations and it's close enough, not perfect but'll do the job.Chances are Paul the centre of the grinding wheel is your issue.

ah crap I read the wrong measurements, no wonder 60mm seemed abit too large for a driveshaft
Use thicker walls to lathe down, that way both inner and outer diameter will be square to each other, which is no guarantee abd damn near impossible on an un-machined surfaceah crap I read the wrong measurements, no wonder 60mm seemed abit too large for a driveshaft
I'll have to return it, then remeasure the actual shaft before ordering again
Is the drive shaft inner C.V too small or the LSD hole too large?ok think once this bronze bush arrives tomorrow, I'll first try to lathe this super thin sleeve.
if it doesn't work then I'll have to remove the LSD and get it machined.
the RH LSD hole is slightly too large. the LH hole is perfactly fine.Is the drive shaft inner C.V too small or the LSD hole too large?
If the CV is too small I'd get a new or different one if the LSD is too large isn't it the problem of whoever made it? Or has it been worn somehow?
ur a clever guy frank
woopsidaisy, plenty of towels n powder on that puddleI run the long shaft without a retaining clip, have done for years. I just can not fit the shaft to the LS Diff with the clip in place, only issue till now was the shaft falling out when i left it hanging when doing a different job on the front suspension. Caused a massive puddle of g/box oil on the drive, which I think I just about got away with hiding from the missis!
Did you ever go through a reasonably deep puddle or ford?Wonder how that happened cos the cv boot n clips look original n all intact n solidly secure.
Nice explanation. The last time I drove through a deep ford was I think 2012 during heavy rain n poor country road drainage, enough to make the engine misfire for few secs.Did you ever go through a reasonably deep puddle or ford?
There's air in the CV joint as well as grease, as the CV works it heats up and expands pushing some air out of the boot, immerse it in water and it suddenly cools the air contracts creating a suction, sucking in whatever is around it in the case of a puddle....water.
As a caver we'd get the same problem with supposedly waterproof headlamps...
