It's been a busy week since we got back and it wasn't until today I got chance ro have a look at Numbum. Using a borrowed jack and my axle stands I got the old girl up high enough to see what I was doing.
The reason for the noise and vibration was obvious. One cup had vanished from the universal joint.
The reason it vanished was a cracked yoke.
Parts are ordered and it shouldn't be long before the old gal is back on the road.
Take an old couple and an even older car, add in over 4000 miles of driving and this is the result. This is the story of Numbum's drive round the UK coastline, driven by Owen and ably navigated by Pam. We hope you enjoy the journey. We will.
