Thanks to Brickwerks for sending out new wheel studs and nuts - arrived in less then 48hrs from placing order!
The loose rear nuts would not stay tight , long studs had been fitted and cut too short !
When I removed the hubs I found these studs had only been pulled half way through the hub !
New studs pressed in properly - end of problem.
Been having problems with selecting reverse when from cold , oil level was low . Made use of the ramp at work today and changed the gearbox oil. Feels much better now, deffinatly No syncro on 3rd though.
Here it is from underneath
Driving it is brilliant.
Accelerates hard in 3rd up to about 60, change into 4th ... keeps going to the end of the speedo !
(on a private road of course
Or short shift to 4th and it pulls nicely from 25mph onwards.
Brakes, standard and in good condition , stop an empty panel van with ease.
No idea what revs yet , must sort out a rev counter.
Checked speedo against local speed signs. Actual speed is 28 rather than the 30 showing on the speedo.
When it gets new tyres will put 60 series on instead of the 55's fitted. this will bring the tyre diameter up to standard and correct the speedo reading
