It's front wheel drive.
: Last December, came away from the gun club, and got this terrific banging sound when I engaged the clutch, so loud I thought the flywheel had sheared it's bolts or summat'. Then I thought the starter motor must be hanging off, and clanging about. Seemed to come and go when first driving off, and then vanished for a while.
Got her home, no problems with the driveability, jacked her up and checked the inner and outer cv's, wheel bearings, suspension fixings, etc etc. Nuffink!
: Thought praps' its in the gearbox( AF?)
:, reduction gear spacers, bearings perhaps? First motion shaft ball race collapsing?
: Anyway the long and short of it is, it still drives ok,(done quite a few hundred miles since the original occurrence, seems to have disappeared, but have a sort of buzz vibration with or without the clutch depressed. Time to torch it you reckon?
