Tie rod length - will 75 Series fit my 40 with 60 pwr steer?

Unread post by Jeddavo » September 16th, 2015, 9:06 pm

Hello guys,

I'm in the process of putting 60 power steering in my 40 series,
along with disc breaks, I'm pondering a few things.

-will 75 series tie rod ends fit in the 60series rods?
-what is the length of the 75 series tie rod and also the drag link?

I'm thinking of cutting the 60series rods down to the same length as
75series rods and putting 75series tie rod ends in the cut down
60series rods, does anyone know if this will work?

I'm aware that I could just buy 75 series drag link and tie rod set up,
Tho if I can make what I have work I will.

Hi mate,

Here is what you need,

60 series hub arms, 75 series tie rod and tie rod ends, all the ends match up and the tie rod is the same length,

I have done this a few times now.

Any other questions just ask.

Dont listen to me, Ive got an opinion on everything!

Sweet as mate thanks for that !

Hey do I need to grind the inside of where the cv joint sits to allow more room for
The 60 series cvs?

I had read somewhere on ih8mud that they had to do that?

Cheers in advance!

If you are using 60 series CVs and disk brakes with 40 series knuckles then yes.

But if you are just doing the pwr steer without the 60 series disk brakes then no.

Both are big jobs, and if you plan on doing both I recommend doing them at the same time.

Yer I'm doing both At the moment ! How much has to be ground out?

I've seen pictures of the ground out knuckle tho I'm just not certain
I've ground enough out, is there a method to tell if you have/haven't?
I haven't put it all back together yet! I've fitted the 60 cv in the 40
Diff it fits but I haven't put the spindal on to see if it grinds or hits
when the cv spins.
Gotta get some more cv grease tomorrow and I'll put it together and
Hopefully the cv is not hitting on the knuckle.

test to see if the CV spins easily, and make sure there is 5mm of clearance.

I would do that before i greased anything.

Then put it all back together with the thickest moly grease you can get (thats CV safe) thicker is better if theres a problem. and change it to lighter grease next time you do the swivel hubs.

Remember use new bearings and new gasket on everything.

Now lets get this straight, its the 40 series CV in the 60 series hubs is that right? (or am i confuesed again)

Yep all new bearings an seals is the only way.

It's 60 cvs into the 40 series diff/axle.

I think both actually work.

Got it all put back together today.

Had to grind a little extra than what I had done
Seems to spin by hand pretty good

both of the "definatlys" seem to work in this situation mydmax!!!
