Hey where's the "Mallaby" Trademark. Someone might steal it.

Tip.... New Tap King holds ten beers and if administered in one sitting you get a FREE hangover.

Bit gymicky but still good I think. Cheaper to buy a carton but I like a cold beer glass. It pushes the last drop out too so no wastage (except down my chin onto my shirt!)

I know I keep chopping and changing (pun intended ) but I'm back on the diff. Had to have axles re straightened and shortened as the dickhead that did it pretty much failed. The guy is Promac at Cardiff and has shut down. If I every catch him ill re arrange his nose. It has angered me to no end and cost me a lot to fix. He even set the axles up for drum brakes and its clearly a disc brake end.
Here is how much I had to trim



New bearings for discs on.
This is apparently out of an 81 Bronco


With a drum brake bearing this bit in here 'walked' out 2.4mm


These are the rotors I'm using and noticed the slots are directional

Here's my how to double flare guide
First make sure you get a nice square cut on the end with a pipe cutter


Slide through the clamp so that the pipe hangs out the same length as the base of the flare bit


Put the flare bit in


Twist to drive the flare bit down




Remove pipe to show flare. Just remember to put the nut on prior unlike my mistake!!! Angry

There sitting here home after 1.

So in the end your axles probablly werent too long he just used the wrong bearings? so the new bearings would have spaced them back out 3 to 4 mm.

No it's the black bit at the end that's skinnier and doesn't force the axle in.

Hey NES

To make it even better remove the burr from the inner side of the cut end and file the end square.

Looking good though, and yes don't forget the flare nut  Huh Huh Huh

Thanks for the photos. I'm currently out of action. Got ct scan back for my back the other day. Turns out I have degenerative spinal disease, osteo and the bottom 4 disks are bulging. I only went in there thinking my hip was crook lol. It's not an injury. I was just carrying around the engine block the other day no probs.

No worries Deano. I screwed my back ten years ago L4 L5 discs and had seven months of crap physio. After I spent three weeks at a chiropractor I was running!

All new rubbers for the diff and the bloody hangers are too short thanks to a taller diff (standard Wink) saddle

Just wondering if those mounting brackets on the backing plates are going to scrape the inner guards or have you already ollowed for that. I didn't look all the way through the photos carefully but all the commodore rear ends I've put in I had to relocate those brackets so the hoses wouldn't shear off with suspension travel. Just think its worth a look. Cheers
