This propshaft is a genuine Hardy Spicer/GKN Land Rover part TVB100610G, it is a wide angle prop but not as wide angle as our custom built 30 degree props (our blue ones, GL-EXT-600 is the same fitment )
It uses the larger of the universal joints 27mm x 92mm 1330 series, they are normally fitted to the front of a Defender TD5.
Both joints and the slider are greaseable and the propshaft is phased to help reduce vibrations.
Includes new nuts and bolts.
Fitting advice :-
When fitting make sure you clean up all flange faces as they should not sit on top of dirt or rust.
Brush grease onto flange faces this will help prevent rust.
The Slider goes to your transfer box flange, for a Double Cardan propshaft the DC end goes to the front transfer box flange.
You must ensure all UJs and the slider are fully greased on fitment and are regularly greased during use.
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.
Please note that propshaft UJ`s on lifted vehicles are under more strain and require REGULAR GREASING to prolong there life, no propshaft should be used for long periods of time with a steeper running angle of more than 5 degree, anything above this angle used for long journeys will cause the UJs to over heat the grease will dry up and cause premature wear, this is always a problem on Land Rovers especially with suspension lifts above 2 inches, as once you lift the suspension the propshaft angle steepens, even caster correction makes the propshaft angle steeper.
