3 Rod Gearbox problem

Got mine back in position but that was a lot of years ago - got a feeling I put a bush on the outside while I put a nut on the end to hold it in place - very fiddly - alternatively you can loosen the plate off to get to the inside bits and hold them against the plate while you put something on the o...

Thank you for the advice, I had considered the dismantling of the spark plugs
That will make it easier to turn the engine - just slacken them you don't need to take them fully out.

Overdrive query

I always "balance" the engine against road speed an hardly notice the OD coming out (or in ) - taking it out when using he engine as a brake is bound to be more violent.
