We have a problem with newly installed Yokomo hardened universals.

The thinner pin in the joint (rear wheel) keeps coming out al the time.

I wonder if other people have had the same happen.

Can anyone suggest a fix to this? I would hate to just discard new, rather expensive and hard to get parts.

Jarkko - you're not the only one. My friend runs a yokomo, and aprat from the steering kingpins that always work loose, his CVD pins always eject. Either fully, or partially. He loctites his, and even cuts a small notch(dremel) in the pin for the grub-screw to "lock" it in place. Seems to help.

Since the SD this has always been an issue. Ive tried different driveshafts etc. Best way i found. by mistake/anger was to just tighten them up so tight until it rounds off the hex! on the grub screw not the wrench :P Not had any issues since.

I just gave up and bought a full new diff. lol.

The rings were molded into the outdrives too. The new one i built is nice and tight so it should not happen again

These have no grub screw. They are this type

I suppose making a hole for a grub screw might work. I'll try that.
