After some serious searching on here, I still haven't managed to a definitive outer CV boot part number or make/model from another vehicle that I could buy and install please?

 

AutoVaux can't supply them any more BTW.

 

Can anyone advise please?

Probably worth trying these guys http://www.cpsdrivel....uk/contact-us/

 

Spoke to them a few weeks ago and they would even supply uprated shafts to fit, c£300 a pop though.

Thankyou, I'll gve them a ring and see if they can offer a correctly sized boot that is thick and strong.

 

BTW for anyone else in the same position as me, I've measured the outside boot, it's approx 100mm long, 86mm diam one end, 29mm diam other end.

After stripping my CV joint apart this afternoon, I can see it has some really bad wear on all 6 of the races that the ball bearings sit in. Hence it's not rebuildable in it current state. Am tempted to buy a whole new drive shaft TBH, as the other CV joint is bound to have some wear on it too.

Is there any excessive play in it, or is it making a noise?  Was the boot damaged, is that why you are changing it?

When I place it on the floor and counter rotate the 2 halves there is a titchy bit of play in, which when multiplied up to 430 ft/lb of torque translates to a bit of a "pick up clunk", maybe 2 or 3 degrees. I've also had increasing humming sounds from the drive train over the last 2 years, hard to know if it's CV joints, the box, the diff, or the bearings.

On inspection today, the pitting in the CV 1/2 cup is quite serious really, and the shaft ball bearing locators have some marks as well.

Hence, it needs replacing. Bear in mind this thing has seen 450 ft/lb of torque at times (when my Courtenay map became "run away"), it's a miracle it's lasted as long as it has.
