Ashcroft Transmissions Heavy Duty Early Type CV Joint (Pair)
This design is made as a direct replacement for those that have the AEU2522 fitted currently, i.e. the earlier Defenders or the later vehicles that have already converted their hubs to accept the '2522's.
Supplied with a FIVE YEAR replacement warranty against failure.
This type can also be fitted to the Range Rover classic and the early Disco I's but you will need to make a small machining mod to the stub for clearance. We are able to provide details of this for you. The overall length measurement is 236mm.
Always check the seal in the axle if a 32 spline CV is being replaced as the 24/23 shafts all need seal nº 571718. If this seal is incorrect oil will migrate from the diff into the swivel housing.
Any 'dry running' spline will be subject to 'fretting corrosion' any will lead to premature failure of the spline/drive member. With oil filled swivels this is not a problem as oil can migrate along the CV shaft to lubricate the spline, on grease filled hube this can be a problem so needs constant attention.
When fitting the CV joint we recommend one tube of One Shot per CV joint.
