    Should we dismantle gearbox to replace sleeved mainshaft rear bearing 576208?

    My only experience using the sleeved bearing is that tightening the flange nut pulls the mainshaft backwards, moving the sleeve, which in turn locks up the transmission. If that hasn't happened in your case after torqueing up the flange nut, my feeling is that it will happen in service, so I...

    Mystery access panel?

    I think that question has been asked before, and I don't remember there being a definitive answer.

    Gear stick gaiter replacement

    Lot's of centre consoles get broken and aren't fit for sale, so try the P6 dismantlers, (Wins, MGBD) they may have one knocking around to sell.

    Suspension - any ideas?

    I doubt that it's been kerbed, that would bend the bottom links and/or rip their mounting brackets off the base unit. Something strange has happened there if that toplink is bent inwards.

    Rear brakes including hand brake don't work

    The piston doesn't move very far, that's why it needs to be as close to the disc as possible in the first place. Operating the foot or handbrake multiple times should move it closer if everything inside the caliper is working as it should.

    Rear brakes including hand brake don't work

    I would say that the left caliper hasn't been ratcheted up as far as the right hand one. If you have air in the system, I'd say that air will compress and affect both brakes equally, and that air won't affect the efficiency of the handbrake.

    to tow or not to tow

    Early boxes with a rear pump it's no problem, but later boxes there are varying ideas put about. We used to work on 30 miles at up to 30mph, and you should add a litre off fluid to raise the level to hopefully protect the tailshaft whitemetal bearings. TBH it's best avoided. The best idea is to...

    Compare the bent(?) offside to the other side.

    Suspension - any ideas?

    I can see what looks like the head of a mullered splitpin, so it's on far enough.

    Suspension - any ideas?

    It's always difficult to tell from pictures alone, but the toplink looks to be bent inwards towards the inner wing from the shock mounting forwards.
