Diff carrier bearing failure


Recommended Posts

Taking the bellhousing off the gearbox to do the circlip upgrade. Checking things over I’m presented with is. Not too far away from totally failure. I have no idea what could have caused this type of wear but somebody has been in there before and the bearings are not original. The spacer rings and collar were inserted out of order when I removed the output shaft housing.

Orientation of fracture face looks like rollers impacted the race from behind? With the taper of the race I don't know how that could happen unless somehow a puller could catch them from behind.

Looks more likely someone whacked the bearing on with a punch and hammer on the centre race which cracked the side of it, then instead of buying another one they left it.
