A bit warm today-good for gearbox filling

Well it got up to 40 degrees C in the 'shed' today :o ...ideal I thought for mixing up some semi fluid grease and filling the CP gearbox. Certainly goes in a lot easier when it is hot (well 40 degrees is hot for us Brits :D ). Job done and now time for a couple of cold beers in the shade. SDC12947.J...

CP gearbox inner case gasket

Thought I would share this 'in case' it helps others. I have read a number of times that, although an inner gearbox shell gasket is listed (3003-33) it is not needed. My WNG gearbox was of the type which had the 12 roller bearings and steel bush (3238-31) on the gear change camshaft (the parts book ...

Yes I agree, do you tighten them then mark the holes so they all line up or just thread the wire through them at different angles...oh and what wire is best

Re: clutch and mainshaft

Drags sell a set of three 2 hole tab washers as 3388-41. https://www.draganfly.co.uk/index.php/c ... duct/6180- However, I can't find this part number in any of the parts lists. I must say they are a damn site easier to get the tabs bent over than the six hole variety

Re: clutch and mainshaft

In fact, in the early years, I have drilled the heads using a hand drill, so they can't be too hard. Eve...
