hurricane gearbox

Post by donna » Tue Feb 13, 2007 8:51 pm

it looks like im stuck with the old bus as i can not sell it so i might aswell repair it and use it as its not a bad car its growing on me a bit of a hippy car/tree hugers a bit of me its been to france 3 times with a caravan with no probs anyway i have had close look at the pice of cast that broken of the gearbox o/s drive shaft pice and all it dose is drive a black plastic sleave for the speedo and thats it it dose not connect to any thing eles so i think it will be ok to put it back in ok the speedo will not work but hey if anyone thinks diffrent let me know and i will get second hand gearbox but i have no transport to collect so would have to be local regards gaz

..... except the oil seal.

In it's current condition, that box is scrap.
this might be a signature

its down and left and a turbo diessel / there is no oil seal just bearings and case and there is a grove next to the bearing case to let oil get to the black plastic sleave to drive the speedo hence oil on the plastic sleave when i removed it thats why there is no oil seal because there is no need as oil passes anyway regards gaz

I`d have thought about £10 at the most mate, Telford is about 55 miles from here I think.
There`s no rush on my behalf btw, I need to get the engine out of my estate and the new one fitted before I can do too much alse anyhow.

Hows about this for a plan. Cavmad provides the gearbox, I come over to Chester, pimp a ride to Telford and lets get the bleedin box in.

Anyone else up for this? The more the merrier

Sounds like a very good plan Ken and I`m game for it. If we can persaude others to help I`ll donate the box free of charge.
Ken, I`ll pm you shortly as I have a money maker for you (if you`re interested) should you be happening this way.

Ok, to further the plan, I'll be popping back to visit Chesters finest to lend a hand with the engine swop, if the timing works out, we could do that, then flit over and wham the box in the hurricane??
