Rear Axle Help!

Postby rock_shoes » Mon Aug 29, 2016 5:54 pm

The rear axle of my Pajero bit the dust in an epic display of self destruction (it literally snapped in half on the left side of the diff and spit out a chunk of axle shaft). The long and short of it is that I now find myself sitting on the side of the road 276km west of Whitehorse wondering where to find parts (when I eventually get to Whitehorse).

Any help as to sourcing parts, which Delica rear ends are the same, etc. would be most appreciated. A good friend in Whitehorse tells me there are a number of derelict Delicas in the area so here's to hopefully scavenging what's required.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Update.

I've managed to have it towed off the highway, hitched into Whitehorse, & will be flying home to fetch truck and trailer for retrieval to Vancouver. I'll still need a rear end but at least CVI will be able to do the work.

With that in mind. Anyone with a compatible rear end for sale would be most welcome to contact me (locker preferred. Might as well upgrade while I'm at it).

Ditto!

Butch said he's never seen a rear axle do that on one of these trucks.

On the plus side, I just spoke with Coombs and it sounds like they have one that will work.

That must have been a hairy and expensive experience.

I'd imagine finding one with a locker would be a tough deal. Lately monteros are becoming more and more popular in the US due to high praises as a cheap 4x4 on forums.
