Ep85 gearbox going for a refurb!!!!!


Super Moderator
Wish me luck. It's going for a refurb as it has a rattly noise in neutral when the clutch is released. Suspect input shaft bearing.

Hope it won't be too expensive!!!

Thought I would start a thread to update how things go along the way......

gearbox has been stripped.

Grumbly input shaft bearing was found to be the noise I could hear.

The outer race face had failed on one of the diff bearings. This caused some filings in the box :( fortunately this didn't cause any further issues and can simply be changed.

As long as the bearings and seals are reasonably easy to source, we should be good to go shortly.

I will let everyone know when I get a bit further forward.
