If its got anywhere around 200,000kms or more then mate thats the death rattle that VN's are known for.

Not all have it, but 99% of em do...

And the VN ran a Borg Warner 3.08 Diff...

for more info, try heading over to www.vncommodore.com too, they may be able to help you out.

I had that vibration in my ol VN, it wasn't too bad liked it when i floored it, a complete rebuild would help get rid of the vibrations in the car and you'll also get a little more power out of it.

Timing chain and sprockets I think. They are easy to replace though.

yeah my boss bought a VN cheap to rebuilt and resell to some moron

it got to about 220,000 then the crank snapped clean in half(!)
then when he got round to taking the cam out, that was also snapped at the base of one of the lobes

they also have different cranks for auto and manual for some reason

And I believe that they also have a balance shaft which makes noises etc. Apparently you can disconnect them so they don't rotate.
