1982 Wing. developed a strange noise at low speeds. sounds like tire separation hitting pavement (sort of a "slapping" sound). only at low speeds, and varies with speed.
On center stand sounds like a driveline noise. Universal joint?? Removed rear drive, all seems normal. no play. Slid back drive boot at engine and all appears tight and moves freely. Lots of grease (the right kind) on splines to wheel. Oil in gearbox clear with no metal flakes visible. Guess I should pull driveshaft and closely check bearings?? 82,000 km on the clock so excessive wear "should" not be a factor??
