Mudstuck free wheeling hub

Postby Renier » Tue Mar 27, 2018 4:03 pm

Has any one fitted a pair of mudstuck freewheeling hubs my auto ones gave so I've bought a pair but I seem to be missing something the cir clip I have is too small i can always get a bigger one but will need heaps of spacing washers to hold the axle in is this normal?

I have only used genuine hubs, circlip only holds axle in the hub so spacing it will work as long as the rest all works

I just found my issue someone has put the wrong cv in on at some point when I checked the outher side it has a second circling mounting for manual hubs... I'll do some careful mesuring and pack it out with a few washers on this side not worth replacing the cv I don't think

There should be 2 slots for the circlip. The smaller one is for the auto hub but if you can shim it out to fit it should be fine.
There are no isuzu hubs on the mudstuck site but the other ones look like either AVM or a cheap copy.
A photo might help

Got these on I found that when the auto hub failed it compleat ly sheered off all the teeth that made up the 2nd slot so did a new cv the mudstuck hubs look like a asin hub with a 5 year warranty seem to be ok quality but only time will tell:)

Have a look at these 2 links

These are most likely what mudstuck is selling. Some of his winch deals are quite good but always double check what you are getting. He used to sell a polyester 9 meter snatch strap. I foolishly bought one but only use it as a short winch extension. It has about as much stretch as chain. We tried it under test conditions. Toyota surf plus bighorn on hard grass light snatch of about half walking pace and all my fillings fell out

I brought a pair of steel FWH from mudstuck awhile back, they lasted about a year before self destructing that was with daily use in 4wd and lots of abuse. I used a 3/8 stihl chainsaw rim sprocket which sildes over the end of the axle and a 10mm bolt to hold it in as the end of the splines are threaded, spaced it out perfectly to stop that annoying cv rattle.
