    Differential hanger bushes.....any ideas?.

    I think mine need replacing as I get a "clunk" from the back when going into reverse. Is it a job I can do on my back on the shed floor or do I need to go over a pit?

    Beryl goes to the track.

    Considering what you were up against, I'd say awesome performance. A dry day and standings may have been different. Good on you for puting Beryl up.

    From day one I was told by a BW35 engineer to always reverse into your garage when you put your P6 to bed. The reason being when you first start up the revs are higher on the choke and when selecting reverse you will get that awful clunk. Something you dont get in forward gears.
