Re: Excessive Endplay

Re: Excessive Endplay

I've seen engines that you would think would die during the next trip carry on for thousands of mile. Then others pop without warning, so its not really possible to say how long it will last. How you drive it and how loaded up etc will have a bearing too.

Re: Speedo Cable

I've never seen a difference in year or LHD vs RHD, so if there's a measurable difference between the new and old, then its either a non-standard one has previously been fitted or an error in the supplied one.

I guess the former.

What size are your two?

Missing centre pinch bolt?
Missing lower KP grease seal?

Have you got the weight on the wheels? The LP pinch bolts are loose / missing?

Re: 56 locking cargo door handle

That's frustrating that you've not quite got it back yet.

FBI had some early door handles.
