R180 Stub Shafts Into Replacement Diff

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I’m in the process of swapping out my busted R180 on my 240 for a replacement R180, I ended up with a K model, so i’m Going to swap over to the bolt in tomorrow.

 

But my main concern is that one of the stub shafts slides in with little drama, just a solid push, the other one grabs at the start of the splines and i’m wondering if it’s okay to rubber mallet it in or if that might damage the splines?

 

Cheers

Yeah it's fine to hit them in with a rubber mallet but I thought the early zed R180 shafts don't work with the later K doff

Years ago I ran an ex-240K R180 in my 260 for some time until I found a replacement R200 after mine went bad (shear pin broke as mentioned in that article).

The R180 had the half-shaft retained by a central bolt. It was a close sliding fit, on both sides, but no rubber mallet required. Surely there's something like a damaged spline causing the sticking?
