Hi All,

Recently had some strange / alarming clonking noises from my gearbox - assumed something had come loose, so removed rear cover to check the mainshaft castle nut - this is what I found..



Just though I'd share it for anyone that's interested.. - it's obviously been tightened with the hammer and chisel method in the past.. not by me, I hasten to add.. Crying or Very sad

Hi Darrenh -
Yes, that's the end of the mainshaft, with the nut still attached .. !! - And I didn't have an overdrive unit fitted. I've only had the vehicle for a year, and I'm not aware of it ever having one.
