Post Gear box input shaft , no spin
So Slowbo Span the dummy out the other day , was driving fine then lost the clutch

took engine out today and found the clutch release bearing clip had popped out on one side , fitted a new one

was sorting handbrake out , before refitting engine and spinning wheels ,and saw that the shaft wasn't spinning ,tried to turn by hand ,but its rock solid

can still select all gears


whats going on

Take a good look at the point where the inputshaft goes into the gearbox. If your bearing is pushed backwards it can melt/disform the inputshaft tube??? and block the inputshaft.....

(I had this at my beamerengine)....

Got the gearbox-guru coming to take a look and sort it out

Took the lid off to have a look , will go into gears and some things turning , but no spin on the main shaft

Oboe,
check the M7 bolts on the rear cover.
If one of the 4 shorter ones is too long, it will foul the rearmost pinion on the mainshaft, preventing it from turning.

Oboe,
talking to Rick this morning and he mentioned something about gearboxes working better (and lasting longer) if they've got oil in them... :roll:
