Replacing CV bands
Had a leak for a while so decided it was time to fix
Needed a couple of basic items
Bands in two sizes
Tube of CV grease
Injector and needle
Sizes of hose clamps
SAE - 9347410 - 3/8" 304 Stainless Steel Hose Clamp 1" to 1-5/8"
METRIC - 9347410 - 9mm 304 Stainless Steel Hose Clamp 25mm to 40mm
SAE - 9347493 - 3/8" Stainless Steel Hose Clamp 3-1/2 to 4 3/8"
METRIC 9347493 - 9mm Stainless Steel Hose Clamp 90mm to 110mm
Available from West Marine http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...tial/0/0?N=377
The bands I purchased are rounded so they don't dig into the boot like conventional bands from hardware stores. I had to get them from a marine store.
Removed the small band by prying open the two tabs
This releases the band
Then cut the band
Clean up the CV shaft then inject grease into boot to top up. (This I found really hard to do. It was very hard to squeeze the grease thru the injector and the needle but eventually put in about half of the injector.)
Then place new band on and crank up - be careful not to over tighten and tear boot
