Front Diff

Hi folks,

I need to pull the front diff I think. How much play should one expect up front ?
When decoupled I can rotate the prop shaft almost a half turn before the front wheels
engage. Also get a clanking noise when in AWD and working hard.
That's possibly prop shaft bushes.
VC works well as does front diff lock.
Worn VC or worn diff ?
How many hours to get the diff off ?

That's pretty normal Mark. The noises are probably your prop shaft. That tinkling noise you often hear when reversing is the slide bush worn or dry. Even if it is worn loading it up with some good marine grease will help. If your unis are gone bite the bullet and have a new shaft made or buy one from the US. Greg E
