Rusty Rusty Rusty! Maintenance time! Sort of... Very Happy

Time to write my diary... Smile

Built the AEV Jeep Brute a couple of years back...
Ran it in mud, water, and in sea water at East Coast Park.

Survived all these years until recently, the front axle seems to be stuck....
So, time to open up and take a look....

Look at the wear on the axle case... Razz
One of my favourite and most used trucks... I'm sure you can see based on the axle case...

The internals..... rust and mud... mixed with grease from the day it was built....
Seems like the ball bearings gave way... and the little metal balls in the ball bearings came off and got stuck on the gears... hence causing issues on the axle....

Gave it a good scrub to remove most of the mud and most importantly, the little metal balls...

Coated the gears with Marine Grease... this is the same tube that I bought when I started this hobby.... It lasts for years! Very Happy

Everything seems to run smoothly... so... time to reassemble...

And done!

The next maintenance schedule will be when the axle breaks again... Razz
Will likely just replace the whole axle the next time round instead of swapping the parts.

Will try it out during the next trail!
Thanks for looking!
