    Defender Re: Viscous sheared off

    Just avoid Tata Telcoline part number 254720150126 !!:o ;)

    Where is the "viscous spacer" fitted? is it aligned?

    The fracture face should give a good indication of flaw origin/ type of failure.

    Defender Re: Viscous sheared off

    Probably vibration fatigue failure from step in shaft + incorrect/ damaged radius + vibration. Lots of Tata bakkies suffered from similar failures initially :rolleyes:

    4 Hole gasket or 4 hole carb?

    The carb is a Zenith 36IV or copy, off Series 3. Gasket is correct, the small holes go nowhere on manifold.
