  5. Yes - its the yokes that will not align by roughly 5 degrees, the nose of the diff does angle very slightly upwards due to the King set up, but no more that the tray back used to and that was fine with a normal rear prop in, looks like I picked up a old dog one TBH, the one from Gwyn was ordered late Friday and it arrived by 11am this morning cant ask for better than that
  6. Thanks for the replies, bit the bullet and ordered one from Gwyn Lewis, cant be having with faffing about, hopefully it'll cure it, knowing my luck however it prob wont make any difference
  7. But would'nt that then be miss alligned ? I'll try and get a picture
  8. Cheers Western, Thing it they will not go in-line ?, they are always out of phase I can get it close, but go another spline and its way out, go 180 and its the same
  9. Hi Chaps, Been having a few vibrations ever since it want back on the road, so time to try and sort it out, It's through the tranmission mainly on acceleration between 35-60, removed the rear prop and its very slightly out of alignment by about 5-10 degrees where they are supposed to be in-line, no matter how how move it around it won't line up. surprised I missed it when putting it together TBH So could this be the cause or be at least adding to it anyway ? and as the prop was bought 2nd hand could it be a front which is supposed to be mis aligned albeit by much more sold as a rear/ or a mis-matched - cobbled one one ? Cheers
  10. ABS Cable ??
  11. When I had mine done albeit the SVA with the 200Tdi I had to provide emmisions details from LR who were as much use as a chocolate tea pot, in the end i used the data from the workshop manual and the year of manufacture of the engine in my case 1990--1994 IIRC it was a few years ago (plus the 200 was only about for 4 years) and they used this to set the emmisions and therefore Tax - at least thats how I remember it went
  12. When my old truck went though the SVA for a Q plate, the chassis was not stamped and the VIN plate was a home made affair that consisted of a square of Ali and a number made up with hand punches, riveted onto the seat box and that satisfied the man from the Ministry The number had to be unique and tie up with your submitted SVA application, or you could have asked the DVLA and they would have supplied you with a number. HTH
