    What are the parts that I need to mark so they go on the same way next time?

    Great bit of info here and finally found out why there are two circlip grooves..

    Quote
    "Note there are 2 groove on the axle. The circlip will fit into that groove. The inside groove is used when you have auto hubs and the groove near the end of the axle is used when you have manual hubs."

    I had just pulled the drivers side apart - first time since we have had the vehicle and it has manual hubs and the previous person who pulled it apart had put the circlip in the auto hub groove.

    What I would like to know it how do you dismantle the manual hub. The manual shows a circlip...but where?

    Hi mate, why do you want to put the hub down further than that? you should be able to clean it out with a degreaser from there and then repack it without pulling it down further.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Thought I was missing something. The exploded diagram at the start of this thread shows some sort of snap ring.
    As you can see this one has had water in it at some stage of its life but is still works.
    As you say, clean with degreaser (done that) and repack.

    Thanks Trevor

    Hey Mud Runner

    Been a while since we last chatted

    Believe it or not I’ve finally got around to putting back together my GQ front end rebuild...

    1 thing mate, I asked you a little while back about the steering stop bolt...

    You mentioned that it’s in the front facing part of the swivel hub scraper seal & you took some pics etc & showed your vehicle for me to see.

    Now I’ve looked at the manual on page 1 but shows the locking nut on the rear facing of the swivel hub scraper seal (you can tell which side by the steering arm bolt hole)
    I’m confused LOL

    I think it’s just a breakdown of the hub mate, I don’t think there’s any reason to pull them apart as I doubt (& I’m only guessing) there are any serviceable parts inside the hub.

    Pour degreaser inside the hub, let it sit over night (or for a long little while at least), put your hand over the top of it (degreaser still full) & shake it vigorously to clean everything out... dump the degreaser from the hub, spray some CRC or WD40 so it can penetrate the crevices nicely, dump that out too, add some grease to it & on the CV joint too - I don’t think you need to pack it crazy like a bearing (but I could be wrong about that too)

    High temperature bearing grease on all your wheel bearings

    Molybdenum type grease for everything else included the birfield joint (the big knuckle bearing thing on the CV joint/axle) & the upper n lower kingpin bearings
