minitruck are all fine spline in the US...HOWEVER, the issue isn't spline count.
US spec for this, but yours may be the same...
76-78 birfields have a longer shaft, and thusly a longer body for the lockout. Minitrucks/79+ birfs have a shorter shaft, and thusly a shorter lockout body.
You can mix-match some.
minitruck birf and minitruck lockout - run the stock outer C-clip
minitruck birf and 76-78 lockout - run a bolt/fender washer (doesn't protrude thru lockout entirely)
76-78 birf and 76-78 lockout - run the stock outer c-clip
76-78 birf and minitruck lockout DOES NOT FIT since the birf protrudes TOO far into the lockout and you can't put the dial on.
bugger, i had a glimmer of hope of borrowing one off my mates hilux, ohh well back to the board,
the drum (coarse spline) cruiser hubs in australia have a metal free wheeling hub dial, the disk (fine spline i think) have a plastic dial. my only prob is i cracked the dial in a jacking excersize and now can only turn it half way around (it doesn't unlock) anyone got a cheap idea for a fix,
is it possible to put the metal dials in mine? don't want to crack another one.
I dunno if this helps but when we broke a hub on a 95 hilux we were able to replace it with a free wheeling hub from a 70 series without any probs. The only diff between the lux and 70 series hubs is the colour of the dial. Not sure if the 70 - late 40 series hubs are interchangeable, but I know a lot of other stuff definitely is.

a little grease is normal...if it oozes out and is watery then you might wanna do a rebuild process. On mine tho, if it ain't drippin from the knuckle felts, I don't worry on it...
oh yeah, it's drippin on the passenger side now....hehehe
