    Default noise in rear end

    hey guys i am hearing a knocking noise in the rear of my 110 when i shift from 1st to 2 nd , it almost sounds like back lash in the diff , i had all the bushings changed as well as the ball joint but the noise is still there , i dropped the prop shaft the crosses seem fine , the van only has 76000 k , is this normal on defenders ? when the prop shaft was out i held the diff flange its has about 3/4 inch of play from left to right is this normal ?

    thanks lawrence

    There's not much you can do about play in a salisbury diff without some fairly specialist kit. Worth checking the drive flanges tho as the splines have a tendancy to wear. They should be kept well oiled / greased for best life expectancy.

    Do you mean you could move the whole thing sideways 3/4", or you could turn it about 3/4" at the outside of the flange ?

    The flange should have no discernable sideways movement on it - if it has then either the bearings have gone or the nut has come loose. If it's the nut, then be aware that setting the bearing preload on the Salisbury is NOT the same as on Rover diffs and it's easy to overdo it.

    Assuming the bearings are OK, then you seem to have a lot of play somewhere. It's either in the gears or the driveshafts. Worth pulling the driveshafts and checking the splines for wear (at both ends). If the driveshafts aren't worn, then it's time to strip the axle down and that isn't a job for the feint hearted It's not particularly difficult, but does need some specialist tools and/or ingenuity Unlike the Rover axles, you can't just drop the whole diff out and carry it to the bench to work on it.

    Before I put the 'new' axle in the 110, I took the diff out to check - and sure enough the diff carrier bearings were well and truly "worn out". You didn't need to look hard to see a deep tramline in the outer races - I believe this is a known weakness of these axles. I put all new bearings in, IIRC they cost me 80 for four bearings
