Hey all, just wondering where the best placeis to get bearings and seals to rebuild a 1031 diff.
Scored a 3.73 and also purchased a 4wd systems lokka for it.
Volvo dealer or try a bearing shop
Whichever costs less
I think the timkin part numbers you need for the diff bearings are posted on turbobricks article section this includes thd pinion bearing
The axle seals are out at the wheel bearing ends,
Pinion Seal SKF 942905
I'm not familiar with the Lokka, but I installed a Powertrax Lockright locker in a 1031 rear end, and as it fits inside the original carrier in place of the spider gears of the open diff, there is no need to replace any bearings.
The diff I picked up leaks like a sieve. Not going to go through the effort of swapping an entire rear axle with a leaky rear axle and new centre.
Fair enough, a pinion seal, pair of axle seals and a cover gasket should cover all the leakage points.
Cool beans. Very keen
