Got a couple of hours on the old girl this afternoon so cracked on and ripped the beam and the gearbox out of the pan





So flipped the pan on its side and fired up the grinder with wire wheel attachment and cleaned all the underseal off the bottom of the pan





only 3 patches need welding. 2 of which are previous repairs to the jacking points and 1 to the front bulkhead mount
