At 630 odd thousand its time to freshen up the 60's gearbox, the front brg is worn and so the seal is leaking and has been rustproofing the underside of the old girl for a while now.

The info I am after is which is the best rebuild kit and where do I get it, any pitfalls in kits?

Any other info that is relevent will be appreciated.

Cheers Pesty

I've used the Don Kyatt/Terrain Tamer one in two troopies with success, don't use their gasket and seal kits though as the gaskets especially leak eventually despite coating liberally with sealant.
I thought it was me but two 4wd service places confirmed what I suspected that the gasket do leak eventually. Stick to genuine gasket kits, the bearings and gears etc are much cheaper than genuine and seem to be of similar quality.

yes bought my 75 with a rebuilt t/c case and the rear seal was leaking. I asked my local mechanic who put the genuine part in and was told the sealsin the rebuild kits dont do the job

Can't vouch for them, but 4wdsystems have kits/exchange units advertised at good prices
