                Plain encased seal at the axle shaft

                Richard Lehr  4 December 2015 20:06:00
                Since everything was done, the first year ended up in more maintenance work. Or better: investigation. It was not possible to find the seal (NSN 5330-00-410-2329 | P/N 11640306) which seals the axle shaft and the brake housing against dust and water. A friend of mine made me one which I installed together with a new axle shaft and deflector.

                First it started with the seal. We used a material which might help to survive the next century

                And this was the final result:

                    Happiness and Sadness

                    Richard Lehr  6 June 2015 19:20:00
                    Since everything was working well on the brakes. I made my first offroad test drive.

                    I do not know why I checked the inside of the drums. But it was a good idea. From where is this mud and dirt coming?

                              To assemble everything, new nuts and bolts (UNC & UNF) and washers were necessary. Found everything at http://www.screwcorner.com/

                                Seat Console

                                Nice construction, but not original. The original part was cut and between the original console and the seat there where U profiles used. The original console does not fit any longer.

                                After some investigation I found a correct NOS console for the passenger side which is fix while the driver side is adjustable.
