    Great video, was the other side as hard to separate (mine came apart much more easily, lol).
    Keep them coming

    Another great video. The head falling off the sledge hammer was gold! I genuinely laughed out loud

    Oops! But there's so much more in it than just a broken sledge hammer.

    Haven't managed to separate the other cv yet, it might be getting to meet the angle soon.... The standard axle is to long anyway!
    I think when you break your sledge hammer it's time for a different tactic

    Thats very odd. I have done quite a few over the years and my normal problem is keeping them together whilst they are fitted. Do you think that the wrong circlips/clips were used on yours?

    Not sure about the Circlips, eventually cut one of the axles i didn't need to get the CV and my press couldn't push the stub of the axle out, machined it out on the lathe and on inspection the circlip was very deep in the groove, no way it was going to compress, you'd have to shear off the circlip to push it out

    Enjoyed your festive offering Col. Just spoke to my daughter yesterday who lives and works in Sydney, complaining about a sunburnt nose!! She agreed that this was not very Christmasy. Today we awoke in the North East of England to a sprinkling of snow - that's more like it!

    Happy Christmas to all - both Down Under and across the remainder of the Stratos world!

    Cheers!

    So I totally forgot you need an alternator and the original one on the engine didn't fit, so this episode i tackle the that situation
