2 rail box front bering cover

Post by peter freeman » Mon May 13, 2019 7:25 pm

Took the GB out of the Coupe today so I can get the engine out to find out why the starter does not engage the flywheel - however found the GB front bearing cover tube has broken away from the cover - nothing to do with the starter motor I think. Anyway does anyone have one lying around - I think I can get it welded up again if all else fails as the thrust does not come near it. No idea how or when it broke away but it looks like it has been like this for quite a while.

I had that happen on a 4 speed box on an autobahn once!

I think I may have a spare but won’t be at the workshop until Thursday.

No rush Jim -I have to get the engine out to diagnose the starter motor problem before I need to get the GB put right .
