With the mounts, levers and selector shafts removed, the next step in the operation is to separate the Main Gearbox and Transfer Box.
As neither the front output shaft or input shaft has anything attached to it to resist my turning of the centre nut, some thought needs to go into how I “hobble” the gearbox so I can undo the centre nut…..
Even with me belting it with a lump hammer, it won’t budge and I don’t want to abuse it to much incase I damage the lugs where the gearbox is fixed to the engine mount.
So, what I need it a BIG lever. Hmmmm, big lever, where can I find a big lever?
GOT IT 🙂
… the handle of the trusty farm jack. This is such a versatile tool, everyone should have one.
