Check the cam belts have been done, there are two. Front and rear of the engine. They are around an 700- 1000 job! Due around 90k or 10 years from memory.

Rear belt is the fuel pump drive?

Shouldn't have said that! Looks like we have a failed rear mainshaft bearing in our R380 gearbox, a known weak spot if you are into heavy towing, according to Ashcroft's site.

The box is 7 years old and to be fair has led a pretty heavy life, so not too disappointed.

Ashcrofts do a revised rear bearing for the R380 mainshaft and layshaft, bigger roller bearings than standard:

Layshaft


Mainshaft


It's 160 extra on top of the 495 for the exchange gearbox.

Ordered one with the HD bearings, will be ready at the end of the month, being fitted locally on the 8th May.

In the meantime we are limiting our trips and towing weights.

I try not to be professionally interested in bearings but I am curious to know a little more detail on the alternatives if you have it Peter.

No details on bearings available, Nick, they obviously don't want to give that detail away.

I'll ask the question when we pick the new box up.

Old ones were RHP as OEM supplier.

FTC2385P1 or RJ2023 is the original rear layshaft bearing
FTC3371 or RJ2022 is the original rear mainshaft

Quite understandable - probably find that extra 160 equates to 16 worth of bearings!

Plus machining of the extension housing to take the larger bearings.

Bearing prices have really bombed in the past 10 years, I have a full set here for the LT230 transfer box, less than 60 the lot IIRC.

The layshaft HD inner looks like it has a sleeve in it?

Ah right, hadn't noticed they were bigger OD - must pay more attention!

Fortunately not in the world of military aerospace - though the amount of such work being carried out in UK does seem to have reduced significantly.

EDIT; I remember not that long after I joined, celebrating a 3M turnover in a year as a department - now we are lucky to do that as a (much reduced) company.
