I wished it was the motor missing , a walk around in daylight confirmed it was the back one it , the oil seal popped , I cannot work out how it kept going, because when it slowed down it was like 10 handbrakes! For about a couple of hundred meters and it stopped like nothing happened although The driveline was jerking when I came into town.
I’m to scared to scared to pull out the axles and centre.... I spent my money yesterday...
Yeah jarrod , I’m probably jumping the gun looking for one , I’m thinking the worst and anything better is a bonus...the sales rep calls around every second week when I need bits for the t line , I’ll give him a call and leave him to it .
Widen your search to a D1610 4x4 ....lots more of them about........and at least drain the oil,and see whats in it........IMHO ,it doesnt really matter whats wrong with your diff......the cost to rebuild one would be astronomical when I would think $350-400 for a good centre would be the odds.....(.be sure it is the diff before spending any money.I guarantee no wrecker will give a refund ,cause they will the so happy to get money for what would be scrap if you didnt buy it).......I would still fit a IH#3 eaton back end.
According to the D line parts ,there are two different Rockwell axles ,RA65,and RA85.....so be sure you get the correct centre for your truck........one clue I noted is the RA 65 has the 6.167 ratio,the RA85 hsa a 6.2 ratio......the difference is the RA 85 has a 5 tooth pinion,and stronger gears....but there seems to be more changed than that,as the gaskets have different part numbers ,so the carriers are not interchangeable.
Yeah I don’t know yet I’ll pull it out tomorrow and I tell you what I did notice, on top of the diff centre it self is a large. IH. so did oh get some Made for them ?? Maybe Rockwell ,or did international make some , the other thing is the diff doesn’t look big enough for the truck, it’s gvm is only 10.700 kg I’m not sure but it wasn’t a terrible lot more for the gcm , I like the truck as it is simplicity no computer, no a/c .... hmm the only thing I don’t like about it is ( apart from the obvious diff ) is the fuel economy, 3.45 km/per litres. I’d heard about it but thought he was bs but obviously not the ratio of mine are 6-16 . Anything else is shatter the weak one every time , been there done that..
Yeah no thanks John , although I didn’t have a tray I would of traded it in less than a month .... we’re diesels dearer to buy ? Surely the venerable Perkins was alive , I drove it home from Ouyen which is 280k -300 k and I I’m thinking of transplant already
.the guy who brought my car back said to me put plenty in it I said I put 100 litres in it ..I put 20ltr extra, thank you to my friend .
I guess there’s a reason why maybe petrol was cheaper than diesel or people stuck to what there knew , maybe the initial outlay was above what they could afford , every mile they done didn’t go in there pockets but out the EXHAUST.
