GEARBOX

after a lot of mishaps, as usual, the gearbox is installed . had dismantled it 3 times....... i've put new bushes and springs, gearchange system was OK . after installed the cover, he don't want to move, remove it , searchin' the bug, in fact the bushes base have an overthickness of 4/10 of mm . it's my crap, i didn't check them before install, and don't want to remove them, so i made another gasket, more thick, perfect now......

BENCH ECHOES

had a look on my gearbox, never seen this gearchange system before, very "barbare".....
                                    
was lookin' the bottom nuts and  they're too short to sit properly in the cover ???? the hexagon part is in conflict with the case, they're exactly same lengh but shorter, so i made another set in stainless
paint job is on way, unfinished at this time, not sure about the result, supposed "satiné", mat, in fact . or maybe is it due at the wrong painter ?
