good news. :thumbsup: you must let us know how you get on with the shaft.
remember bearing load adjustment is done by adding or subtracting shims from behind the brake hub. :cool:
The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

The american Drivers side will be the longest shaft, on a mindie being a right hooker it would be short, just think on our driverside being the US passenger side.

I would just tell them you wanted the long or short shaft, that should clear up any errors on their part. :hello:

Just to thank every one for their help, eventually got the correct one from Morris4x4 and a new brake drum from the Indian fella on e-bay. Must say they were both
very helpful
Thanks again
All I did was put the same amount of shims back in the same order, and place, being a builder and not a mechanic i just thought that would be logical :unsure: Have I made a boob ? :worried:
I put it all back together last August and havn`t had any problems so far :)
