Strange noises
#9
Hi Chris,
Thanks for the suggestion. The shaft seems fine though so maybe the lip was on its way out (it's probably 80+ year old Bakelite after all) and simply got finished off by the shaking and bouncing the whole car got driving through the Lincolnshire Wolds yesterday afternoon when everything stopped working all at once.
At least it got me home and it looks like I've managed to sort it with very little effort. May be worth keeping this experience "in the locker" in case anyone else experiences something similar. At least it's something else to check up on before the engine comes out to tighten up a flywheel that is actually OK which was probably what I would have done if I'd not tried to see if I could get the car to start to see if the flywheel was actually loose!
Best wishes,
Nick
