T56 Magnum Gearbox

Took the decision to bolt the gear­box and engine togeth­er this week­end, it took a little fet­tling and “he who needs to do as he is told” had the good idea of tak­ing the bell­hous­ing off, mount­ing to the gear­box and then mount­ing both back on the engine.  It was a little dis­con­cert­ing to see that once on, that the gear­box is slightly rotated approx­im­ately 5º vs. square.

Hav­ing sat­is­fied myself that this was nor­mal from brows­ing a few build­er blogs and the Cobra for­um.  Everything was dis­as­sembled and rebuilt with the Clutch slave cyl­in­der bolted in, new remote bleed­er man­u­fac­tured and presen­ted out­side of the case anti­cip­at­ing future ease of main­ten­ance – just need to decide where to mount it ! and finally the main hose fit­ted.

Finally all assembled and two happy campers!.….….….….…..just need to get it in now.
