loud clonk when pulling off and vibration when driving
Hi guys really need your help. I'll start the story from the start as it may help towards finding the cause of my problem. I have just done a resto on my 33 16v, drove really well for a couple of weeks until I was driving down a country road and I felt a weird knock. I could feel it was on the left handside of the car. The engine then cut out and I just made it to a safe part, I looked underneath and noticed petrol everywhere. What had happened was the Allen head bolts had come loose (god knows how) from the drive shaft and ripped my fuel filter off, cutting the engine before the last one and a half came loose. I got a new drive shaft as mine was a mess at the gearbox end. Installed it and I got a loud knock from the leftside as Iu pulled off and and a vibration when driving. Then noticed the output flange that the Allenhead bolts go into looked a bit out of balance when spinning the wheel, I found a good used one and replaced it but still got the same problem. It's got me and my mechanic cousin abit stumped. I really hope the gearboix isn't damaged as its a very low mileage one I paid quite abit for, although I have a spare.
Any advice, or anyone heard of this happening?
