I rang CBC and got them to look up the composite rotor hubs, same price as they quoted me yesterday so I've got two of them on order, due tomorrow.

I also did a bit of looking over and found that my power steering pump and AC compressor are pretty rooted so I'll have to sort something out with them. I also found that the water pump is weeping coolant so have one of them on the way from Wooders, hopefully I can get it by the weekend ready to put in.
Thanks Cypher yerr they do look intergrated. I might get it pressed apart and see if it can be replaced or greased. The outer bearing from memory looks like a sealed unit. Although I will need it apart to know for sure. My mech did say that he relpaced the bearings in another customers XJ once, but he may have been mistaken and actually replaced the whole unit as that is what his suppliers (CBC) list in their catalogue.

JJ mine was stuck on the axle shaft it had fused on with rust. The knuckle was the easy bit. I tried all sorts including heat & hammers and it was a bastard to get off. Having said that mine may have been one of the few hard ones. In the end I hit the end of the puller with a hammer.

Regards A

Yerr I have read a few US posts saying Jeep parts are dear. IMHO they should try and buy parts from OZ where it seems no matter what the vehicle parts are way more expensive than in the States .

Currently tossing up whether I should remove the front bumper this eve in preperation for Saturday's big install. Also waiting, two weeks now for my headlight inserts to arrive . I keep getting told any day now. Heck the place is not even a Jeeps parts supplier . I am hanging to get the 90/130's back in again.

Regards A

Hubs are done. Turns out the ones supplied weren't timken units but I needed them anyway so went with what was available. Had to buy the 36mm socket and a breaker bar to suit and it all went quite well, both sides done in about two hours.

Props to Supercheap too, I managed to break my 4 year old Sidchrome 3/8" rachet today and I had broken the 3/8" little breaker bar in my kit a while ago. Went into Supercheap, the guy pulled one of the kits off the shelf and swaped out my stuffed parts for brand new ones, no questions asked or receipts needed. Quite happy.

I also tried the fabled 1:1 mix of acetone and ATF today in place of WD40. Works quite well from what I found.

fixed an exhaust leak between the top and bottom parts of the headers.
finally got around to extending the breather hoses on the trany and transfer case, and putting a breather on the dizzy.


also made a led that plugs between a injector and the harness to flash when ever the injector pulses

I like the enviromentally friendly cable ties...

Is the LED mod a test unit or are leaving it in full time?

Not a bad idea...

test rig, the plan is to leave it under the back seat, with the spare cps & coil & pull it out when disaster has struck.
