  1. Hi, Were you able to fix it it did you have to replace it? Our ferret gushes water out of the valve (Overheating) when it comes up the hill outside our home- maybe the revs are too low, but I'm suspicious of the valve. Only recently fixed the temperature guage so not yet able to see the overheating situation as the vehicle is off road having a beauty treatment on its brakes - driving with brakes on 3 wheels as the previous owner was doing is not good for ones health. :shocked: Diana and Jackie
  2. All seals renewed, transfer box drained and refilled with Carlube EP90. The hardest parts were removing the spilt pins holding the drive shaft flanges, especially at the rear, luckily we had a breaker bar otherwise we would never have been able to remove some of the bolts, plus two good quality socket sets, and the most essential part a magnetic pickup. Joints were sealed with Silicon RTV and fingers crossed we cannot see any leaks. Finally below are the brake band adjusters, which dont look too bad? We'll be checking the level of all gearboxes for a short while. The green "pipe" is in fact spilt hosepipe over the tachometer drive to protect it, the appaling black things are the battery cables which we'll be replacing with welding cable from TCL. Thanks to Richard for his help! Diana and Jackie
  3. Hi Richard, We'll ponder this and get back to you... on the face of it then it seems possible to fill both boxes with SAE30? There's a world of difference between SAE30 and EP90, I do know that one box has oil and the other, which I had filled correctly is not now filled correctly...on top of which the transverse box oil which we withdrew had all the look of water contamination (milky) though I am not sure if that was an effect of mixing SAE30 and EP90... Its bad enough having oil seals on the outside without having them inside. In any event sometime this weekend the brake band cover over the adjusters is going to come off so we can assess the state of the brake bands. Diana and Jackie
  4. Hi again Richard, Changing these particular seals is not difficut - we decided to do all four, and took the side hatches off to do it as well as replacing all 16 prop shaft bolts and nylocks with new high tensile ones. It now maybe that the 2 seals between the gearbox and transverse box are also gone hard as I have a suspicion that the gearbox oil level is dropping, now that the transverse box is empty after we suctioned it out with an oil pump. A new gearbox is an astronomical price :-| so how easy or hard is it to change those 2 seals plus the input shaft seal and we may as well do the brake bands? Apart from deterioration with age the gearbox appears to be OK. Diana and Jackie
  5. Thanks Richard - eactly the advice we needed. We do have a pullers. And Yes the cylinders usually come with cables if new parts. Diana And Jackie
  6. Its a mark 2 - that's the problem - removing the turret! If the 4 prop shaft drive oil seals can be changed with the box in situ please let us know.. just changed the 4 brake cylinders and cables - the cable adjuster on the rear offside is a PIG to get at/adjust, so dont fancy removing the box after all that if possible. Diana and Jackie (The Ferret Girls)
  7. We have a problem!... apart from the others this is a big one :nut: leaks from the differential prop shaft output - a faulty oil seal. Does anyone know how many oils seals if any (yes know about the fluid flywheel seal can) be replaced on the gearbox/diffferential/prop shaft drives without removing the gearbox - but maybe pulling it back and removing relevant bits?
