I've changed both shafts, a new wheel bearing and new gaskets (again lol! ) Lets hope it does leak again..

Gearbox is back in so is the engine, just need to connect the motor up, change the throttle cable and refit the rear brakes then all should be good............. Fingers crossed.... Very Happy

That was a bit of a bummer then Rich. Crying or Very sad

Glad you got it sorted though. You'll have to be careful now. Very Happy Tho I doubt you will Laughing Laughing

By the way do you have any mufflers hanging about to fit on a 1776 engined bay? Wink

As you know i snapped another axle... Evil or Very Mad

But she's back on the road for a while.. lol! lol!

The home brewed straight axle kits all BALLSED so that'll be going in the bin cos it's litter.. So is the 1500 box...

The GT box is now in capable hands get rebuilt. I've gotta sort new axle straight axle kit, rear spring plates, new brakes and bearings and shot blast some long axles and paint them the gearbox may get a coat of paint as well..

Then put it all back together and see if it lasts lol! lol!
