Hey Guys,

I'm new to the forum. I've seen posts for a place called Reliable Driveshafts in Centurion but these posts are from 2011 and unfortunatley the contact details no longer exist.

I have a 1986 short wheel base gwagen that I bought already converted to a game viewer.

I am struggling to find a LHS outer cv joint kit. Does anyone have any contacts for parts in SA?

Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated!!!

The last CV broke at the Klein Tafelberg event. That was about 2 years ago? The first one broke at a Molteno get together and there has been a lot of serious 4x4'ing after that one, but not so much with the new one. So I can safely say that the 1st one took some heavy punishment and came out without any issues. And I've done some serious 4x4'ing in the Transkei since the first one broke. That is always a serious test on any drivetrain.

Regards,

Arnold

I think on both occasions the lockers were on. I was busy with a serious obstacle at Molteno when it broke, and the same thing happened at Klein Tafelberg. I was trying to do sand dunes in Buttercup and was "giving it all" in order to get through. Some spectacular high revving took place but in the process I broke the only original CV. Some serious fixing took place that day as I had to drive 1,200 km the next day back to East London!!

Regards,

Arnold
