Yeah got package, Thanks. The Gearbox don't look to bad, I haven't had a real close look but will soon as I can. I did notice that 1 of the retaining springs that hold the 3 little shift plates in was missing, did you take one of them off.

Keith you better watch your daughter upload pics because more pics the better. :mrgreen:

No it would of got lost at Pauls he was in a hury to pull it apart so he was way in front of me. That was first one i have seen pulled apart so the two i have done at home now i did much slower and controlled so know ware all the parts come from and what parts are there. I picked up all of the parts from yours after it all fell apart at his press but there was stuff all around the floor which made it near impossible to know what came from wear.

Well not happy Jan, Some as hole D/head stole my genuine Manx badge and to render it useless they just broke it off so the pins were left still in the body. They must have been disturbed because the front has been pried from the side and broken 1 out of the 3 prongs.

Not plastic this one I believe its original from day dot, Weren't they sand cast or something. Picture of the back of my buggy on page 1 of Finchy's manx. Brad that would be fantastic if you would do that. I have put my name on a set from ben but haven't filled out the paper work yet. I would like to keep the new ones new for when I do a full ground up resto probably in 2 or 3 years when napoleons hat rusts out. I would also be happy Brad to return the Badge when the resto happens. I felt sick when I saw it missing so took buggy for a splat to the pub & back (30k round trip) and by the time I got back I had a smile from ear to ear.

Righto I will get one sent to you, guessing we have your address. In fact how far north do you live ? The guy who makes the cast ones for us is around Harvey Bay, that near you ?
