its doing both, you can feel it letting go and grabbing again on that side. Been like it for ages. If it is the diff i may aswell just swap them both for the ones on the 2.2i A were using as parts as the rear diff keeps chucking its oil out under load aswell with a half shaft seal leaking too. Bash plate is already off and has been for a while.

all right folks onl just got back in took dacman out for his first go off road after the other had split and a little warm up to 3 quarters on the tmep gauge and that it took si for a 45 minute spin through all different terrains to pop his off roading cherry and he had a good fun and found nothing to challenging

big thanks to andy clemo and rob for pulling me out had a right scream it was great fun go the pressure hose to clear the bottom of the rad and the behind the front bash plate as it had an inch at the bottom had squeezed up behind the air con one but soon as that was cleared temp back to normal not a hickup

i hate to dissapoint you gys but evn with it 3 ft in mud ticked over a 500rpm as normal and sat there running for the hour we where pratting about with no problems the spluttering was the clay blowing bubbles off the exhaust.

great dad i would mind the sun had dryied the top few inch of the clay and silt so it look solid and so i said to gazeddy shall we and we did cant wait for the video

only damage seems to be the allows got a bit of scuffing fromt the pebbles in the sludge

just took me 3 hours to wash the crap of the bottom

oh and i have to pick a new nmber plate up in the morning. be putting my pics up soon just off to get some food

si like i said next time we are on might be during the week when rob is back this way i will give you a shout and see if your free.

smaching day

thanks for all the help

got to admit the donughts clearing the mud out the tires was little loutish but fun

and there was some little fish apperently on gazzedys side.

got to admit hey gys it is a quite runner even with it laying in a puddle

had to put the vid up just to show nothing wrong with it going to give it a proper wash later just resizing my pics of the meet and the other cars there including si with a little mub on it as a badge of off roading cherry poped

Image

Image

then we went off roading and i found the quick sand/sludge

So it aint running right then...

Why...were more concerned about the 2cars with frazzled clutches and bust bits from trying to drag you out... :shock:

going to give it a proper wash later

Well done...sooner rather than later incase that stuff dries like cement...

just resizing my pics of the meet and the other cars there

Cool that will be more interesting... 8)

si took his truck off road for the first time today and got it a little muddy.

so popped his off road cherry

and i am incredibly gratefull to the guys for the help and i said at the time if andy needed his tow bar sorting have one he can use.

it just seems that before i have even got it you have all diagnosed my truck as terminal and needing a spanner day to fix when there was nothing wrong with it besides the a ton of mud stuck to the bottom. the fact the eml is on and has ben on for the last 3 months was nothing from today and if we hold a poll in here how many have here eml on now i bet it is nealry half from what i have read but i guess we cant just have a that looks like a good day out you had guys or shame we didnt make it.

but not to worry as far as i know we had a good day from those who was there said so.

or is it just me you dont like
