I just got a front housing from a friend of mine today, to modify for my front e-locker. not really sure of what year it came out of. I was starting to tear it down, when I realized that the hubs were made by Asco. They looked the same as Aisan except they were painted blue and silver. All metal inside and out. Even had cone washers holding it to the hub. Anybody ever seen one of these before?

Maybe jamisonworkshop can post some pics, because he has them now.

ASCO = Aisin Seiki Corp. Same thing. Someone told me on early Toys the color of the dial will tell you the ratio in the diff, blue =4.38, red = 4.10, don't think it's true though. Would only work on all original parts too.

ditto never seen a broken yota hub except when the bolts came loose due to lack of proper nut torque and not 'checking yer nuts!' occasionally.

I have a set too. Blue cap. I found them 'complete' in a 5-gal bucket on a parts run, w/cone washers and all. Perfect shape, just dirty. I was gonna clean them up for spares or put them on my axle just for sh*ts and giggles. Although, only toy nuts like myself would notice:(

I have a front end with one aisin hub and one asco hub. Both have red dails. Both work great.

Hadn't heard of or seen em breaking like that til now. Are your bolts all kept tight? I've gouged the s**t of out mine on a couple rocks and almost wasted the selector dial that way...one of em now will turn about an 1/8" farther past the little arrow that says, 'Lock' engage or something like that!

Could the allen head bolts have contributed to the failure??? I notice those aren't stock toy bolts ;-)

It seems that all the fractures are only where the bolts are, improper torque maybe?

Not ruling out failure, just saying don't see it too often.

Could have been, I don't generally torque them, just tighten them.

I found an ASCO hub in a junk yard one time with a shattered dial. But this one had shattered on the back side, where the little ramps are for the clutch. I don't know what the guy was doing, but One of the stops on the little ramps was busted clean off, and the other side was cracked all to hell.
