have you a link for the flikr stuff? be nice to take a looksee,

 

I cant help you on supplying a new clip for the jerrycan, as I only have the one myself, but I am happy to take sime pics if you want a reference to make one too.

 

I got my old lady running today, (the easy bit) and even managed to unjam the gearbox with some judicious rocking between first and reverse, but it sounded dreadful:-( screaming and honking, and stalling away when in neutral. im pretty sure the box is going to need extensive work and thats going to hurt the finances,, i might have to see if i can get my hands on a new gearbox. anyone got one laying around quietly whimpering the words "use me, please use me" i'd love to know about it!

Great pics--i cant beleive how far you have come with your old lady,, she has gone from pretty sad to like new. I will definately get you a pic of the little metal clip for the jerry,, though its nothing complex--just a rectangle of steel with a turned up end.

 

I was planning to lift my one's engine out today but have been struck with a bug so am stuck indoors feeling antsy.

Very nice Munga8 on Ebay failed to reach its reserve. Ended at £1773 (Ebay 330698808152). Of course I can only speculate about the reserve but if it had been listed after my payday I would have been very tempted to offer a bit more than that.

well had an intrersting moment with my munga...driving along and bang it locked up...not sure exactly what happened..anyway rolls in neutral, engages gears but...it wont start without the clutch peddle pressed, and if you try to release it in any gear neutral or drive it stalls...

 

looking at the clutch cable it looks like it has broken the sheathing, but can tell exactly...will have a look at my other ones today and see...but anyone any ideas, it feels like the clutch hs failled mechnically in some way thrust bearing or similar..

 

anyone any ideas, will have to strip it out I suspect...anyone got an air filter for one going spare..

paul, this is pretty much exactly what happend to mine. im currently swapping the bad gear box out for a spare one i bought off of commander last week, in mine its not the clutch cable, the clutch is functioning fine--and if your ones only starting with the clutch down i'd say your cables fine. in my one it looks like somethng jamming the first motion shaft. initially it wouldnt do anything without the clutch down, i have managed to "jiggle" it free with jerking forwards and backwards in 1st and reverse, so now mine starts in neutral with the clutch up, but its not running right. if your not in a hurry once i have my new box inplace i am planning to do a postmortem on the old one, and i will be happy to give you my findings!
