Project Roadster: Box in 2

Leaving nothing to chance I cleaned up the new box and fitted a new I.L. Motorsport thrust bearing.  On the basis it says Motorsport on, it must be good!

After fighting to get it back in (it didn’t want to play; Powerplant frame wouldn’t align, one of the manifold studs rounded, exhaust was blowing…and so on) I had it in for tea time.

A quick blast up and down the road and…IT DOESN’T WHINE! Or clunk, grind or do anything other than be slick, quiet and awesome! Massive result! On this basis I will endeavour to never post on here about changing a Roadster gearbox ever again (Roadster gearbox misery posts basically make up 2/3 of this blog).

Just got to wait for my new exhaust to come now….

    Glad to see you got it goin correctly. I will pray that you never again have to tae out an MX gearbox. Unless a six speed is goin in.
