    Noise from gearbox/clutch. Gpw

    Thank you Pete for explaining that to me. I definitely believe by your descriptions that you've hit the nail on the head. I shall get this looked at using this knowledge as soon as possible and will report back my findings on here. Here's hoping for a good result. Thank you again. Best regards, Jeff'.

    Pete, thanks for that, I have my suspicions that it might be that as I'd never heard a thrust bearing make the noise in question. Is what you refer to called a 'spigot' bearing? I assume that to do as you suggest access is gained via the bell housing inspection plate? I apologise for my lack of knowledge on these matters but I spent most of my working life repairing and painting motor vehicles, clever people did the mechanical stuff! 😊 Thanks again.

    Noise from gearbox/clutch. Gpw

    It's a relatively new problem Pete, probably caused by lack of use. Restored a few years ago but only done a very low mileage. The sound is similar to a U Boat Klaxon!! (Stop laughing at the back there) Jeff
  4. Help! When the clutch pedal is let almost up after engaging first gear with engine running there is an loud 'graunching' noise. It goes as soon as you move off. It doesn't do it after you've driven on, nor does it do it when warm. I've heard thrust bearings make a screeching sound when dry, but that is usual when the clutch pedal is pushed down. There is no sound when pushing the clutch pedal down or letting it up if it's not in gear. Anyone had this problem?

    For that money I think I'd want a set of correct wheels etc. Jeff

    £30,000 jeep sold at auction.

    Thanks to those who helped with my question, much appreciated. I have no desire to sell my own jeep but was having a bit of trouble getting my insurers to believe that jeeps have been sold for more than £20,000. I couldn't believe that someone paid that much for a jeep that appears to have the wrong wheels and a strange paint job! Thanks again. Jeff
  10. Can anybody help with a copy of the page from 'Classic Military Vehicles' mag from sometime last year (2013) that had a report on a restored jeep that was sold at auction for over £30,000? I believe it was finished in Navy grey but was marked up 'Marines' It was also wearing Hotchkiss wheels. It was on the page that reports on sales and asking prices of vehicles.(before the 'for sale/wanted pages) Thanks for any assistance with this. Jeff

    Hello from NZ

    Welcome mate, I have a close friend who has moved out to N.Z. taking his jeep with him, and he loves it there. He says there's quite a large military vehicle following where he is. (Takanini) Jeff
