    Never say that until the job is complete.

    Removed the collar tonight, ground it down and then used a cold chisel. Came off in one piece pretty easy. Just waiting on the replacement.

    Wish all issues were this easy.

    Question for the wise one's, does this collar install like the collar on the hubs, split off and heat on? Or is this a press fit?
    I ground mine off with an angle grinder then split the last remaining bit with a cold chisel (careful not to score the axle shaft). I heated the new ones and fit quickly before cooling down. I had to use a long pipe to get one of them all the way down.

    Found a video from steamwally that shows the retainer collar replacement. Should be able to handle it.

    This is probably why this side was such a mess inside.

    Have ordered a new collar.

    That's a big victory. It's also a nice morale booster getting to see such a large chunk of Rover assembled.

    With some help from my son and some of his able body friends we should have a rolling chassis by Saturday!

    Making progress slowly. Second side of the front is ready for reassembly. It had blown a seal and had at least a quarter inch of gunk everywhere.

    My better half found a mobile clothing rack that I modified and use as a drying and prep station. A great addition to my carport work station.

    I ended up finding a NOS hub seal race in my limited spare parts extras stash. I've apparently had this for about 25 years.

    Having recently watched a Geoffrey Crocker video on front axle rebuilding I knew exactly what to do. A little heat and the race slipped right on, unlike his video.

    Waiting on a box with seals and gaskets to put one side back together.

    Slowly moving forward.

    One issue discovered was the hub seal race was loose and could be removed by pulling it up with my fingers. Have to see if the spare axle might have a good donor part.

    ​​​Well the snow melted and having tackled many other small projects it was time to get back to Rover stuff.

    Currently working on the front axle. Have disassembled one side and cleaning it up.

    Still using my battery charger de-rust tank.
