CV differences?

Unread post by dirtfix » December 28th, 2010, 11:33 am

Righto, i got a replacement CV off a mate of mine out of his 03 model Hilux and set about fitting it to my 90 model surf but i cant seem to get the outer spline to pull out through the hub assembly far enough to get the damn serclip to seat in the groove, even without the washer. So i am thinking that the later model CV may be just that couple of mm shorter. But short of pulling it all back apart again to check i thought someone on here might be able to help.

I was under the impression they were the same, possibly check with someone like Buddy as he knows Hiluxs backwards.

I ended up taking it back out cause it was doing my head in. Turns out the seal that rests at the back of the hub is slightly different and looks to be shorter by only about 2mm. Got a replacement today and it fitted straight on easy as. So i guess there is very subtle differences. Apparently it fits when you use an older one in a newer rig but not the other way around. Either way its fixed now and i am a happy camper again. :thumb:

Same CV if anthing it was the seal stopping you! put a bolt in the end of the CV and lever outwards while you fit the circlip
