Barfield Joint Inspection
To be checked on this joint is its axial play, which shows up when a push-and-pull motion is given to live axle shaft and wheel spindle held in both hands, as shown in the figure. There should be no play at all but a play of up to 1.5 mm (0.06 in.) is permissible. If play exceeds service limit, replace it.
