propshaft bearing

Postby gregmk2 » Thu Jun 16, 2016 8:26 am

Hi All. my Sov just failed it's W.O.F. on driveshaft centre hanger bush. Meaning the bearing has a lot of play. Any ideas on the part number for this as I will have to source it from ebay and its a long way to NZ if I get it wrong. Thanks. Vin 597293

...this bit?

I'm dismantling a car at the moment in this VIN range if you are interested.

Thanks for the reply. Postage from UK makes it too expensive to send these parts over to NZ. Have found one on ebay for $125 inc postage from US so will probably do that. I don't have access to a pit or lift, do you think I could get enough clearance with two sets of axel stands or is the replacement a job for a garage?
Cheers.

I got my propshaft out with the car supported as above - I could have done it with the car a little lower - but I wanted to remove the subframes too.
I am big with orang-utan type arms - if you are more average sized you could probably comfortably do the job with the car quite a bit lower.

...probably a good idea to have some more stands or something available to support the weight of the shaft as you undo the last bolts. If it hits you on the bonce it will hurt.
I have a collection of scrap 4x2 timber offcuts - very useful for this sort of thing.

Excellent work my friend! Looks like that was fun. Many thanks for the photo, think I will give it a go then.
Hope yours is all good now? Was there any issues with the balance of the shaft? Looks like the adjustment on the bearing bracket would centralise when you turn the shaft then tighten it up.
Many thanks for your help.

errr, I was scrapping this car - I removed the propshaft assembly but did not put it back!

All I know about setting them up is what my local Jag shop once told me:
...that is if the shaft vibrates try rotating the flange at the Jurid coupling one hole at a time and see if improves matters.

I've never done a re-install either but I read somewhere that you should mark the position of all mounting brackets and put them back in the same place ...

Apparently the JLM 1989 is also fitted to a Volvo ? Anyone know what that part number would be or the models it was fitted on. Am having a problem sourcing one with the Jag part number. Also would anyone know the dimensions of the bearing as I could maybe source one locally. Thanks

I think there may be another post on here on this subject if you search. Being a Volvo part rings a bell too. See it's it's mentioned elsewhere on here.

Yes it rings a bell with me too , i'll bet it's one of Boyan's posts ?

Anyhow it is a bugger to find anything but i think this is the Volvo one in question , the part number jlm1989 coresponds to vr 166 when you do a search , unfortunately i can only find them in the US ,
