I had such a vibration on my 69 2000TC. I found the rear  4-speed gearbox
bearing was worn. I did not realize the front extension bearing of the
differential also goes bad, and in fact, wasn't someone discussing changing
one several days ago?....Also, regarding the great mirror debate. I
mentioned the American looking (Believed) British mirrors from my Vanden
Plas Princess 4R, with 4 1/8 "spacing. I have now found the left  mirror I
believe was original from my 69 2000TC, It appears identical to the Princess
mirrors, with a phillips screw above theball where the stem attaches.The
Rover mirror has a metal pivot ball, the Princess mirrors have a nylon pivot
ball, spacing also 4 1/8. Glenn, are you sure your holes are 4 3/8, not 4
1/8? James Dean
