Has anyone out there had any probs with a 100 series Cruiser front diff where they break the crown wheel gear, which is under not particularly hard conditions, the diff does not have a locker, and I was heading up a 1ft high step at a steady pace and constant speed. This is the second diff in as many months (Very frustrating)
Has anyone any good ideas to prevent this happening

There were numerous problems with early 100's and Front diffs. So your not alone.

Matt

I broke mine a few weeks ago. Brand new 100 Series t/d with only 5,000 on the clock.
Same thing, going up a mild track near Mt Blue Rag in the Vic High Country.
Toyota replaced it under warranty without a wimper.
It looks as though there might be a problem with them.

Breaking down in the bush so many times with a new vehicle is more of a problem than getting the vehicle repaired
Getting the vehicle back onto decent roads was a problem on two occasions. Thankfully both times a another vehicle came along and assisted us in our time of need. No amount of recovery gear would have got you up the steep hills and greasy tracks
I do all the off road driving and have been to all the recovery and 4WD courses
I think the 100 series is more suitable as a Toorak town tractor than for use offroad
