Well that was like getting toothpaste back in the tube. For the grease to go in, the air has to get out. Got an airlock serval times. I might come up with some form of syringe type thingy to inject the one shot into the hub rather than dripping it in from the sachet.

I was going to grease the prop UJ as well but the grippy nozzle thingy on my grease gun failed to grip. New nozzle ordered.

If you're replacing the coupler, I highly recommend these:

Not cheap, but so much better than the normal type.

Blackwolf, Thanks for the tip. I've already ordered a replacement from Machine Mart, if that one dies, the Gwyn Lewis one looks good.

Is it really a problem? The axle is well lubricated, there's no evidence of which I am aware that a bit of one-shot in the diff, or EP90 in the CV, is remotely harmful, and nothing is leaking to the outside world. As long as the levels are checked periodically I'd suggest it's not a problem and there's no point splashing the cash on an unnecessary "repair".


I agree. I'm far more concerned if there is evidence of grease leaking out to the outside, because by the time grease can come out through a seal, water can go in... ---
