Took off front driveshaft to discover that the front diff may have too much play.
I can wiggle her back and forth about 3/4".
'Anyone know how much play is unacceptable?
No play at transfer case.
Unlocked as we've no dash light lite. Locked or unlocked, high or low, thing is that she'll drive if the front drive shaft is installed and wont drive if she's removed. I'm thinking that what I may be looking at is the tcase rear drive gear? Never cracked one open but I've installed 2 in our...
Drives sortof shakey so I removed front driveshaft thinking that maybe it had been knackered or perhaps in need of new ujoints. Went to drive her in 2 wheel drive and she doesn't move -Just sounds like transfer case gears grinding. Our Disco may have failed in its transfer case and I'm not sure...
Anyone here ever try a lifter install without removing the heads? Anyhow, my son suggested using Seafoam in both the tank and intake because the knocking reminded him of a bad lifter. I did install new ones but perhaps one was somehow bad and didn't take to its oil pre-soaking or perhaps some...

I removed both manifolds to install new exhaust gaskets at the head and to the pipes in hope that my problem was due to leakage - It isn't. Took 15 mins at idle for the knocking returned. Could the cats cause the knocking? Temp wise they read very close to our other Rover and even if they...
Yes the knocking seems to diminish with rpm. I do own a stethoscope yet like you've pointed out, sound travels in mysterious ways. Sounds as if a con rod bearing crapped out but that isn't the case. If the fly wheel is cracked as you have suggested, then I should be able to see that by...
She's knocking and it sounds as if it is coming from the Sump area.
I rebuilt her with:
New timing chain and gears
Main and rod bearings
New flowmaster and back exhaust
All her lifters looked good.
Anyone any idea why she might be knocking? Happens after she warms up only. If oil...
