    Hi

    Engine out



    Chassis lowered ready to take tank off



    Then I can sort out the back end and get it grit blasted, in the mean time axles etc to refurb

    Cheers
    Richard

    Frustrating day....


    Rebuilt the gearbox



    but, found a crack in the gearbox housing



    Forunately I have a spare gearbox housing, so all apart again

    (I seem to be getting two sets of images, even though I have only up loaded one, wonder why this is ??)

    Bad luck with the gearbox mate but at least you noticed it in time, anyways it's good practice for you 😉 you are not the only one with problems uploading images, I think everyone else is suffering too and the threads are starting to look a shambles, have brought it the attention of the hmvf but have had no response and the problem persists.

    Tank off ...



    Chassis ready for surgury...



    Rear bumper to be removed and replaced with correct chassis extensions.

    Also found a couple of extra brackets on the near side chassis rail where the spring hanger is for the rear wheels, any idea what these are for ? ,possibly pump mounting ? (I dont know how the mono pump is mounted, any pictures anyone )



    Back to gearbox tommorrow (I will be rebuilding these in my sleep soon !)

    Think chassis bckt could be to take the silencer part of the exhaust system, not sure what the cross member bckt is though

    Chassis surgury done, incorrect rear bumper removed, slowly getting ready for the chassis to be grit blasted







    after blasting. I can see how best to 'patch' in the rear extensions, fortunately they are not structral on a an MWC as there is no tow bar.
