Brilliant I never thought you would get this far. Straightening that was no mean feat!I was right about that gearbox, it's maked its territory in classic style. But then I did overfill it to make sure it was well lubed. Pace has slowed, I'm shimming and doing various other small jobs before tackling the stiff quill feed gearbox.
