30 Spline Rovertracks

Hi guys,

last year i purchased a used set of 30 spline Rovertracks axles with ARB lockers etc fully assembled for my TD5 Defender

My CV's are starting to make some sounds now and I'm looking to replace them.
any chance anyone can help me out with what CV's I'm looking for? i heard i need to get Hilux cv's and have them machined to fit rover hubs? anyone got the measurements by any chance? I know i could just take them out and measure them but don't want the truck t just sit there until I've got the new ones.

Also does anyone have some spare Rovertracks axles/cv's for sale and is open to freight to Australia?

thanks,

Are your axles fully converted (Toyota differential in place of stock one) or just axles and CVs?

Anyway it's probably the 30 splines CV you should search for.
Mine have been "clicking" and doing some embarassing noise for yeeears,
you should be okay for a while...

Check with Trail Gear, I think they took over distributing Longfield, and I think they are just 30 spline Longfield CV’s(birfs)

If they are 24 spline purées then they do not exist. If they are 30/30 then they are regular Toyota CVs.

I have the rovertracks conversion on my rig and you are correct, longfield cv's that have been machined to fit the rover. They're still installed so I can't measure for you.
And they're 30 spline.

Just went thru rebuilding the original Rovertracks/Longfield 30 spline conversion in my 1995 D1. For future reference-

The axle shafts measured:
Long Side: 32-15/16 inches
Short Side: 17- 11/16 inches

Both shafts had the following lengths of splines-
1.350" on one end
1.630" on the other end

For the CV's-
I used RCV Ultimate 30 Spline Toyota joints as replacement
Only modification needed to the CV's- the outside hub end splines on the RCV joint are roll formed and the peaks needed to be cleaned up to fit the spindle and drive flange.

How are your axles?
Mine are worn at the splined ends, it would be nice if RCV offered replacement axles as well.

I broke the inner star in one of my original longfield CV's and it destroyed the splines on the axle shaft when it failed. RCV does make custom shafts, and made me a set based on the dim's I listed above. However, I will not buy custom shafts from RCV again, it took them 3 months and their customer service was very poor...
