Iveco propshaft bearing...

Recommended Posts

Darren, the UJs, these require a specialist to install no doubt?

Local garage did mine. Less downtime.

Not particularly a specialist job, technically a press should be used to push out the old bearing shells from the yoke, but I  watched my father achieve the same using a carefully selected socket and a hammer.

Iveco have 2 prop suppliers Dana Spicer or GKN-Birfield.

UJ's don't interchange you will need to identify by looking at the prop.
There should be a tag somewhere.

Good luck as they can be swines to replace if severely corroded.

Right lads, I had a truck mechanic have a look see and it is only the carrier bearing.

So I've followed that link kindly posted by tree fancier and ordered a bearing from Czech Republic for a fraction of the cost of the French main dealer.

I just hope it is the right part after all...

   Thanks for your help so far

Update, we dropped the propshaft on my mates driveway.

That was the easy part.

The two halves of the prop shaft had corroded together.

What the smug demonstrators on Youtube never seem to show is getting around this.

In the end it came apart by (and I quote Peter Winstanley here) "Braying the **** out of it"

Getting the propshaft back on was a bit of a fight.

It seemed to be slightly longer than before as though the two halves had not been quite pressed home.

Next time, I'll get a specialist to refurb...

 

Next question, what is the name of the blocks of wood or rubber inserted into holders on the chassis that act as shock absorbers for the tipping unit?
