Just a thought, but i think there are supposed to be some lock tabs under that circle of bolt heads holding the flywheel on. Mine were disintegrated when I stripped the engine, but I made some out of strips of metal drilled at both ends.

Feel free to ignore - but those lock tabs are supposed to stop the flywheel bolts vibrating loose - might be worth looking through your parts pile to fine them.

All the best,

Andy

I had a nightmare fitting the rear crankshaft cork seals...just could not get them to fit...probably had the wrong ones....i ended up refitting the old ones packed with hylomar...no leaks
I had already struggled past that point, the rubberised ones were less compressible than the cork ones i ended up fitting, i hadn't expected the oil seal to pop out!

I did wonder as the manual referred to locking the bolts, but there weren't any lock tabs when I removed it....and just checked the parts manual; nothing in the picture and nothing listed but I did think it was a little odd when I put it back together.

Fitted the clutch and used the shaft on the bell housing to finally line it up and test fit.

It’s possible a dab of threadlock woukd suffice, but might be worth asking someone with professional experience / qualifications or at least someone less accident prone than me :lol:

I torqued them up pretty tight, but couldn't wait to work out if lock washers were required.....progress had to be made, see below....

Had a successful day finishing the main gearbox and getting the engine into the engine bay!

Painted a selection of small gearbox parts.
Finished the main box, fitting the selectors and cover.
Fitted the new tappet screw and adjusted the tappets.
Fitted the inlet and exhaust manifolds.
Made new fuel pipe from lift pump to carb.
Filled the front axle with EP90.
Pushed the chassis half out of the garage and hoisted the engine into the engine bay.
Fitted the dynamo and fan belt.

Unfortunately whilst I will now be able to afford more Land Rover parts, my progress is going to slow somewhat, or even grind to a halt, as I start a new job on Monday working 4 days a week in Denmark until end February.

Glad to hear you got a new gig mate, and well done on the progress!

Hopefully you working away means I can catch up now :D
