This one was originally red with a black rim so not much better.

The wheel is a mach 5 beadlock wheel this one has a clamp ring sandwiched between the outer rim and main wheel. The other 4 have the clamp ring welded to the main part of the wheel and it's just the outer rim that bolts on.

After I posted I realised that might have been the case rather than mismatched wheels.

Well that's the transfer box changed just need a test run now. The original ones input bearings have died. I'm planning to replace the bearings, gaskets and seals on the original one and keep it as a spare.

Sounds like a plan....

I have a spare engine, gear box (only fits the ibex though) and now a transfer box. Oh and steering box that will fit either the 110 or ibex.

The wheel boxes in the back have an angle on them which does give more space but it means nothing sits on them. I want to be able to mount the fridge there for trips. Que some bent aluminium, rivets, a bungee and some bobbin's to locate the feet.

Finally managed to get a new windscreen cut this week. So out with the toughened screen in with a laminated replacement today. That should be safer and it better not leak with the amount of goo round it.

Well the transfer box replacement hasn't been entirely smooth, Smooth being the operative word. After I changed the box I noticed a vibration between 40 and 50 mph. At first I thought uj but on further investigation I spotted an oscillation on the hand brake drum. Tonight I stripped it out and put a clock on the rear out put flange, sure enough something isn't right. Turns out the output shaft is bent, Lord knows how :moglite:. Yes you can get the shaft out with the box in the car and no I probably shouldn't of done what I have. I didn't have time to strip the other box and I don't really want to in case this one fails. So out with some vee blocks and the clock, yep it's definitely bent. Of coarse I didn't mark the high spot and put it in my press :blink: I wouldn't do that would I :ph34r:. Anyway it's back together now and I'll test drive it on my way to work in the morning.

Couldn't drive quick enough this morning so I still don't know. Though when I briefly made it to 45mph it did feel ok.

We'll made it up to 70mph at the weekend and towed a trailer as well. Seems to be solved :SVAgoaway:.
