    Cheers Brett. I didn't know you could get sealed bearings for the swing axle. I'll look into that.

    Hi Phill,

    I'm not so sure. At the gearbox end the axle isn't held tightly by a seal within the axle tube, which is essentially 'open' to the gearbox, and hence able to transmit oil. The rear axle...

    Hi Dirk, I hadn't intended to because they feel smooth .... but you've got a good point. For the relatively small cost it would be sensible to replace them whilst I've got the axles in bits ...

    Thanks Phill. With the limited amount of time I can spend on the Nova things seem to take forever. However, I remember you advising me to break it all down into a series of wee jobs, and I'm doing...

    Hi all,

    Spent some more time on the transaxle this weekend. Earlier in my thread I explained how oily/dirty the underside of the transaxle was, but here’s a photo to save you skipping back. 3517...

    Have to agree with you here. For all the metal involved, a bit of 'belt & braces' looks like a good move, especially at the 'body off' stage ... I might just do the same ... unless you've...

    Nice engineering Steve. They look expensive! ... presumably you only need 6 or 8 of them for the roll cage and steering column, so why use them all round? (if indeed you are?)
