Junglie Posted May 9 Share Posted May 9 So. On an epic journey into the wilds of Suffolk to collect a gearbox to swap for a roof. That's a different story. I'll cut to the chase. I know my gearbox and transfer box are on the way out - I have refurbed ones to fit with the V8. But last night on the way back: My headlights went out and I had to hold the stalk in place. Dip started to work again after a bit, main beam was completely dark unless I held the stalk forward. I have a replacement here, but it was...focussing. The passenger side wiper blade delaminated. Fortunately the driver's side (just about) stayed together. On the Dartford Bridge at 50mph out of the blue the steering started to vibrate horrifically, accompanied by what sounded like a flat tyre. Got off the bridge because there's no hard shoulder and it was frankly terrifying as there were lots of lorries and it was raining. All 4 tyres are good. And the wheels are all properly attached. Pull away, work through the gears (it's noisier than usual) and up to 40 it's fine. By 50 it's taking all my strength to control the violent shimmy. Do the last part of the journey (I've got 15 minutes to go at this point) on mostly small country roads at low speed. No issues apart from the headlights. Last stretch of open road, all good at 50. What the...heck? The drive up was at between 50 and 60 - not thrashing it at all - mostly in fifth at a steady speed because it was motorway/dual carriageway. About 2 hours each way, so I guess it had been going for 3.5 hours when it decided to get bolshy. I'm baffled. Do I need to go and find a diff as well? I have a power steering box to fit (currently unassisted Bullworker spec), but is that it? And if so, how come it stopped? Any suggestions would be welcome. Not feeling the Landy Love quite so much this morning... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
