At Banbury last year, I met up with Pat and bought the Burman Q box layshaft speedo drive gear from the Club....and now I need to think about fitting it.
As you all know (!), this was originally not a separate item and Burman cut the gear on the end of the layshaft. How hard is this area on the layshaft? Does the old gear have to be precision ground off to leave a stub for the Club gear....or might I be able to turn off the old gear on my lathe with quality tipped tools?
The shaft is still in the gear box, so I haven't had a chance to test its hardness. Lathe work I can do but if it needs to be ground off, I'm going to have to find a professional.
