Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
Well chaps after months of hard work I finally got the Sierra moted. Anyway took her out I've put a couple of hundred miles on her in the last few days and today well the propshaft bearing has gone bye bye. so unfortunately it's going to be the BMW to the show and the wee sierra will have to stay at home :'(:'(
What gearbox are you running then Jay
A 4 speed with a two piece prop daryl.
Honestly James I would have preferred it to go on route home AA my boy Im desperate to get it there.
Absolutely agree Brian just a wee bit gutted that's all..
That is a terrible pity, but better to happen now than to go as you are leaving Stoneleigh to go home.

Changed mine for a one piece, still got the old'un if it's any good i'll fetch it down sunday?
Is there a propshaft place 'local' to you? you've got both ends on the two piece and the centre bearing is rocking horse poo.
Thanks Ade I think we've mcgivered up a short term repair. I've got a one piece prop here of a rx8 I'm gonna have it modified when I get home buddy. But I genuinely appreciate the offer of the prop shaft..
I've heard somewhere you can change these pressed bearings yourself , I t would be easy if they were Defender
