Re: New to me 2011 Patrol, still the same bad luck.....

What Bob said. I think I ran round for about a year with the rear main bearing going south. i did start to hear a whirring sound out the back end and thought it was the clutch. Not sure what "pro" you are talking about. If I were you I would get on Facebook and give Van a shout. he is about a 7 hou...

Re: New to me 2011 Patrol, still the same bad luck.....

Bill's did the same thing up in the Blue Ridge - just a lack of power and a kind of out-of-balance vibration. Those main bearings are pretty stout and can take a lot of abuse. But when they ultimately fail it is a lot more costly than what you're facing right now. As Bill said, take off the cylinde...

Re: New to me 2011 Patrol, still the same bad luck.....

I know others have already ID'd the piece as a bearing cage. I'll take it a bit further and say it looks like a ball bearing cage. That is good news because the big ends are roller bearings. And it would not surprise me if that piece was from a previous failure and just happened to finally find its...

Re: New to me 2011 Patrol, still the same bad luck.....

I watched Van do it and it is way harder than it looks. The crucial part for me would be getting that front end bearing pressed on (without damage to the bearing) and then pulling the crank and bearing into the case so that the crank is perfectly aligned. Having a set of Lutz's crank tools or Van's...

Re: New to me 2011 Patrol, still the same bad luck.....

While I am sorry for your issues, not sure why you would think getting an older one would be better? 2017 I would call bad luck, a 2011 is more like playing craps (much higher chance of issues) Can you post the link to the 2017 troubles. Clearly its a do not run condition as you will just do damage...

And the gearbox milk isn't really a problem now that you've changed the oil. Water comes in down the speedometer cable just make sure to throw some RTV in the cap before you screw it down to make a watertight seal and you're good to go there. Rougaroo Thanks, took your advice..... RTV, Ivan's littl...

Re: New to me 2011 Patrol, still the same bad luck.....

That sucks. I found several long metal pieces during a fluid change years ago. Turned out to be the little clip that makes your neutral light work, one of the most ridiculous and primitive set-ups on Urals. The rivet (why is it riveted?) had come loose and the engine just chewed it away. I couldn't...

New to me 2011 Patrol, still the same bad luck.....

Hello all, So, if you know me, you know the troubles I had with the 2017 I bought new......there were many. So, I traded my 2017 for a 2011 Patrol. It needed some TLC and I was willing to give it some. To start I cleaned the carbs and put new jets and needles and gaskets in them, put on new rubber f...

Re: Urals on the TAT?

Ride has been moved to October, Dates TBA. I think October might be rainier but cooler nights will make sleeping more comfortable. Plus the bonus of changing leaves and such. Like I said, Im going for the ride, not timed or set time to end. just going till I run out of leave days from work...lol NC ...

Ernie, Not claiming to be an expert, but if you hold off until the weekend after next I can come down and help. I should have listened to you in the first place and just rode it. Looking at the damage, it wasn't that severe. I appreciate the offer very much. I have already placed it all in plastic ...

Re: 2012 T final drive metal bits....

So, all my parts and gaskets have arrived. I begin the tear down. It wasn't long before I discovered i didn't have what it takes to get this mess done. I kept dropping those damn needle bearings and I couldnt get the bearing rollers off the gear, the nut that goes right lose, left tight gave me a ve...
