Tech gearbox advise (really urgent)


Recommended Posts

Hi there. Two overland travellers are here in my city, and today they went for an under car inspection, finding there is a gap in one side of the gearbox-flywheel, like one of the bolts were loosen. Maybe photos can help to understand:

This is the place in the car:

Where the paper goes is the gap, we could introduce a 75g paper bended with no problem. The other side of the gearbox is ok, no paper can get into.

Please tell us if this is normal or is a big problem, they have to follow travel to US, with no Land Rover workshop in the middle. Thank you in advance.

Not normal at all. Its almost as if the bellhousing bolts have come loose where they bolt to the gearbox. I would think that would put a lot of strain in the spigot bearing and the input shaft to the gearbox and could result in quite abnormal wear. What is all the fluid we can see - clutch (slave cylinder)/engine oil (crank oil seal)? To tighten the bolts its a case of dropping the box or engine.

What engine/box are we looking at here?
