We recommend all prop joints and sliders are regularly greased, especially after being off road and through water.
These are very high quality Universal joints that we use in our strongest 2020 MEGA props.
These joints measure 81.8mm x 30.2mm, (a 1310 is 81.8mm x 27mm) A larger cap diameter means thicker trunnions which can cope with increased power and torque loads but with the joint still being 81.8mm across it remains compact.
As shown in the pictures, inside the caps there are 3 slots cut into each cap, these slots allow the grease to get to the 4 caps to allow even grease distribution, the caps are also sealed with NYLON / RUBBER SEALS to help stop mud and water getting into them, these joints also hold more grease to increase the joint life and should last for many years if they are greased regularly. The body of the joint is also centre lubed.
These joints are cap greaseable which gives very easy access to get your grease gun onto the joint for greasing, you also have the choice of greasing via the centre lube in the middle of the UJ body. If you are putting your vehicle through more extreme off road use then there is the chance that you can knock the grease nipple off the cap, if this is a risk then you can remove the nipple in the cap and replace it with the plug we supply, you can then either grease through the centre lube or refit the cap nipple when you need to grease.
Ensure your capped greased joint does not allow grease to leak back, they must seal after greasing. If you have dirt in there, they will not seal. If this is the case the grease nipple must be replaced or capped with our plug.
If joints have thrust washers, ensure there is only one thrust washer in each cap, you do not want to double them up.
Always fill the caps with grease as this will help hold the needles in the cap on assembly.
Never use a socket to press the caps in as the socket is hollow this can cause the joint to push through the cap, you must use something flat.
If you can’t get the circlip in do not over press the cap as you may damage it, you may need to tap the yoke apart to relieve the pressure caused by pressing in the caps.
You must ensure all UJs and the slider are fully greased on fitment and are regularly greased during use.
After greasing cap greased joints, you must make sure it does not allow grease to leak back, they must seal after greasing. If you have dirt in there, they will not seal. If this is the case the grease nipple must be replaced or capped with our plug.
Always make sure your propshaft can still turn with your axle at full suspension drop out, long-travel suspension can allow the axle to drop down too far causing the joints to bind and break.
On lifted vehicles, the propshaft is always under more strain due to the angles they run at and greasing the joints is very important, especially after being in water and mud.
Please note:- These Universal Joints don’t fit standard Land Rover or 1310 wide angle props, they only fit our 2020 MEGA props.
