Diff Depression.

It's been about 4weeks or so since my endeavour to find a diff for our bus.

Yesterday I drove to Gympie Queensland to pick up a good Eaton no4 with a ratio of 4.5 to 1, got home and was happy and slept well that night.

Next morning I pulled the right hand axle out and noticed a twist and other signs of things to come.

As you see from the photo this diff has a few teeth that have come loose.

So we are no closer to going down south or anywhere until we find a new diff.

One good thing to come out of this all is that I have found some genuine Aussie blokes that have gone out of their way to try and help us, I have learnt a lot from talking and know what I have to do but it still comes down to getting that diff!!

  1. Oh I so hear you and feel you!!! We didn't have to end up replacing our Diff in the end but we did have to do both rear end wheel bearings, and replaced both front and rear springs.
    David has done so much on our old girl in the last few years, yet it wasn't enough! We left it in storage for the very first time in over 4 years and now we have to decide what to do with it.
    We used to live near Caboolture :)
    We are travelling slowly back through the Sunshine Coast in a few weeks, will see if we have time to stop in to Caboolture along the way, we love the markets that are there :)
