Who would have ever thought that we would have been able to rebuild the gearbox. I'm still a bit amazed. After the accelerator cable broke during the test drive, I wasn't too optimistic. I gave it a good drive to the edge of Narok and I'm amazed at how well everything is shifting. It is shifting better than ever.Here is a picture of us working on it this morning at the garage (under a shade tree). Funny, how the overhaul manual is overexposed in the picture (bottom of the picture)...almost like it's glowing.
On a side note, I think I probably have the best story for field use of a Hakko soldering iron. I carry one in the truck to help fix some of our loggers in the field. Today, we used it to weld the accelerator cable back together!
