Hi All,

Does anyone know what this gearbox is out of? Definitely green paint under the yellow.

If it's of use to anyone, you are welcome to it as its in the way.

Could be from something forward control with a transmission handbrake. Is it a 5 speed, any numbers at all?

There may be some numbers somewhere but I've not really had a good look, guessing 6 speed and reverse. I assume the rod on the gearstick is a reverse interlock  

It came attached to an Albion en286 engine which had been used to re engine a trencher so engine and box are probably not an original pairing? The bit of tin on the back is part of this conversion. 

Certainly looks 40's to 50's, and it is a very heavy lump so must be out of something quite substantial

Vulcan is still under progress but has slowed up considerably due to a house move/complete renovation and a baby girl which arrived in October...

Congratulations and look forward to seeing the progress on the Vulcan when you get your feet back on the ground.

Hi,

Does it turn at all? If so I'd be interested please but not sure how/when I could pick it up as we're very busy right now in the run-up to Normandy. If you wouldn't mind strapping it to a pallet I could have it collected?

For info. it could be Ward laFrance or Diamond T 969.
