Continued on rebuilding my Gearbox I will use for the project.
played a bit with the synchro hubs before installing the laygear. Resulting in 3 balls and their spring to wander around (luckily inside the box). Did not knew that the synchro hub is blocked only later by the layshaft...
Tried to reinstall the balls in situ, no success yet.
Checked the clearance between the lyshaft and the housing, and ordered shims at Guessworks. And three new springs as the new one show already some wear. Bugger.
..it's a bugger to get them back in with the shaft installed. my tip is to use a tie wrap around the synchro hub to hold the balls/springs in place, then slide the collar back over
Hehe, this is what I was thinking about :)
Will continue as soon as the delivery from Guessworks arrives. I will try to get them back on in position. Otherwise I will need to remove the shaft...
Today I had the clever idea of cleaning the threads for the speedo drive cover as there was some gasket paste leftovers. It crunched a lot and there was a lot of dirt in the threads.
Then I remembered I sandblasted the case with glass media (I covered all the openings with specially cut cardboards and sticked them with duck tape) Still a lot of dirt in the box I had to clean afterwards but I did not thought about the threads.
It's incredible where the glass media can go...
