#1 Rear engine mount

Post by doffo25 » Fri May 18, 2018 8:01 am

Whilst replacing o rings in my selector fork rods I noticed that all four nuts to front drive shaft flange were loose. Also that the clearance between driveshaft yokes and crossmember is only 8mm. If I shake gearbox the driveshaft knocks on the crossmember. The car has not been driven since '81 so I dont know if this causes a problem but the thought of the rotating yokes making contact......
Obviously the nuts shouldnt be loose but please could I have some advice on the clearance?

Thank you
