Mecanical details to check on a 80 with 250K ?

So far we have changed:

- front bearings
- drive shaft c.v. joint
- fluid and filter in automatic transmission
- a new turbo (from all american in Netherlands)
- all brakes pads
- add quite some injector cleaner fluid.

Besides the clonk sound in the central diff the rest seems fine but I guess there must be issues to check on a vehicle with more than 250K on it.

Any ideas ?

TLC 80 1993 auto.

Thanks in advance !

- You may have done this already if you have changed the drive shaft CV joints (unless you mean the UJs on the prop shafts) but each front CV joint has a little shaft with splines on it, which mates up with a flange that in turn is bolted to the front hubs. Check to make sure there isn't any play in this bit....it happened with mine and made me think I had play in my front diff. I didn't!

- Brake Discs?

- Suspension rubber bushes?

- Steering - any play / leakage in the box?

- Swivel Bearings?

- Axle seals?

- Flush out cooling system?
- TIMING BELT

- Shock absorbers?

- Big End bearings?

- Injector pump / injectors - if you are going to a place on your trip where there are lots of 80s eg Pakistan, I strongly suggest you look at getting these rebuilt there. It'll be a tenth or a fifth of the cost of getting it done here.

YES ! we did that

- Brake Discs?

DONE

- Suspension rubber bushes?

IF you mean the rubber from the shocks, yes, we changed the 4 shocks for Desert Fox, they came with those blue super hard rubbers. The shocks are nothing especial but are cheap and resistant.

I DONT FEEL ANY PLAY

- Swivel Bearings?

It leaks some grease

- Axle seals?

- Flush out cooling system?

DONE

- TIMING BELT

DONE

- Shock absorbers?

4 desert fox mention it before

- Big End bearings?

YOU MEAN axle end bearings? done.

Not really, not to Pakistan, just visiting the neighbors, Morocco and south of it. So I reckon I must do the injector thing local.

Two things:

I remember Julian V. said something about the bearings --under oil sump-- to be check it out but I can't find than info.

What the f.r.a. is B.E.B's ??

Glad to hear the clonk thing is not something to go crazy about.

Thanks a lot.
