Ford 8100 Schindler 4x4 Front Axle

Postby billgatt » Sun Dec 28, 2014 9:14 pm

I have a Ford 8100 with Schindler 4x4 front axle. I understand these are fairly rare which I guess makes finding spare parts rather difficult. The lower left wishbone ball joint has worn out. Im guessing due to lack of grease the bottom ball joint has seized and as a result the outer bearing ring has brocken up and then eaten into the wishbone casting . If i were able to have the wishbone casting repaired has anyone any idea where i could find a replacement ball joint? Im guessing others have experienced a similar problem and came up with their own solutions so any suggestions very welcome.
Thanks for now.
