No the box is nice and 'loose' and free spinning. Have the new bushes so I plan to strip the box later this week so I shall see how I go.

Box is stripped and the bushes do not look too bad but are worn enough to"rock" the pinion on, drilled bigger oil holes and pressed the bushes in. One was too long so had to trim the excess off. When measuring the id one bush was thicker than the other so reaming them has been tricky always fun *conf*.
