This weekend I got to pull the pinion Flange to find this..

I checked it with a straight edge and vernier and don't see that it has got any "smaller", but it is rough and will probably eat up my new seal. I took to it with a bit of fine water paper, but I can't make a mark on it.

What is the chance that someone has something like this laying about, or know where I can pick one up. Can I have this it turned on a lathe, and how much have I got to work with before it no longer seals to the oil seal? Am I going to weaken it too much by turning it down slightly and adding a collar to get it back to the correct diameter for the seal?

I know I don't update this thread enough, but I found something interesting that may actually help out some of the Safari guys a little.

I was busy setting up the new Safari TC, and found the mounts to take an 11mm bolt. Now some of the Nissan guys are telling me that it's not possible, but I took the mount to BMG to match a bolt to the mount, and they told me to go to an engineering works. Anyhow, so in my quest to simplify the entire install from TC back to the suspension, I "wanted" some things to happen in a certain way.

Last night a smacked out the TC mounts bushings, and my feeling that Hardbody suspension rubbers would work here, was right.

It is a 40mm ID mount and takes the Hardbody leaf spring fixed side rubber bushing. This makes it so that the TC can now be mounted to the chassis with a M20 bolt instead of the 11mm standard bolt.

My install has now added another component with the same mounting spares as most of the suspension. Now to add engine and gearbox mounts to this list. Just needing some 40mm ID pipe with around a 4mm wall thickness. I can find, but have to take an entire 6m length. Now if I have to go this route, I may as well go with the 8mm wall thickness and purchase the full length pipe, and have enough over for my 3 link control arms and panhard rods setup, that is on my wish list.

Anybody out there with a 500mm length of 40mm schedule 40 or 80 laying around that I can take off your hands a fair price.
