Hubs Auto changed to manual.

Post by bogeyman » 13 Mar 2014 10:09

The automatic/manual hubs on my old 4.2 finally decided to retire after close to 500k km. One of the many parts inside this complicated unit broke.
The previous manual hubs I got from Commercial auto parts in Selby JHB for one of my Safaries looked cheap and of inferior quality , but to date has not failed.
I did not want to fit inferior components to a strong vehicle , but any part is better than no part , so I purchased a set from Commercial and fitted them.
The units I got was much better than the older ones and also fitted perfectly. They look exactly like the original Nissan manual units.(possibly a cheap but good copy)
They work and now only time will tell if they will last. It is also much less complicated.

It cost R1350 per set and were for 31 spline axles. There are still some in stock. I also saw auto/manual units there for the same price. They also have 27 spline units in stock.

Ink,
Just got back from hennops , The third time I have used that car off road after fitting the new hubs and also made the front wheels work hard. The hubs are working very well .

We had lots of fun at hennops "choosing difficult lines".

Even did some winching!

Is this change from auto to manual hubs as simple as bolting on the manual hubs? No other changes needed? My auto hubs needs to be replaced the left hand side one is broken, have not checked the right hand side yet. Can get AVM manual hubs from Marinus, he can supply normal or heavy duty.
