Hi. Just wondered what sort of gearbox trouble and if it was the preventative type? I always thought the transmissions were fairly bullet proof? Nige.
Yep pretty bullet proof Nige, over tight chains can prematurely wear the final drive bearing which is an expensive NJ205 E Roller bearing. Ive seen many that were overhauled by MOD base workshops/civi contracts with a run of the mill ball bearing which isn't up to the job...
Repairing this would gave been cheaper than a new engine Keith!!
Hope you'll still loiter with intent around the forum and say hello at ride outs in your neck of the woods!
