The gearbox (transmission) casing came back last week. Me & Little Phil were all ready to build it up Tuesday evening, but we found the casing was full of swarf & grinding dust.
I took it home, where I have a parts washer cabinet, and set about cleaning it out.
This is the front bearing housing with its new sleeve-
I have started to re-assemble the gears, and the front universal joint assembly on the mainshaft.
Next job is to make some new gaskets. The UJ housing & mainshaft bolts on to the rear of the main gearbox housing with a paper gasket.
The old and the new. 1928 Buick gearbox and a 2013 laptop computer. We took lots of photos as we dismantled the transmission.
