Paul @ Bears phoned me on Friday - he's managed to source one for £250.
Not a bad price i gues - i was going to get one from Martin for $400 (he had an OG one - not conversion one on the shelf)

Rob - gearbox is a funny one. Paul said it looked like it had a very recent rebuild and the internals were in great nick. however, the nose cone had a crack and had been welded but also the bore in it had become ovaled (same in the intermediate section) so didn't have a reference point to sleeve it.

Now he's got a nose cone to take a reference from he can sleeve the intermediate section and put it all back together.

Fingers crossed he'l have it ready for me by wednesday morning. I'l give you a bell on monday re engine.

Cheers
Deano

If you dont find anyone to do your hubs give me a shout and il get it sorted.

Finally got the gearbox back from bears and everything is back in and running

ive got a few bits of finishing to do - but nothing major. ive raised the front half an inch and lowered the back about an inch. i might lower the back a tad more - havnt decided yet. next step is rolling road although ive got my eye on some jenveys

Here in North America they are known as a "linch pin" or "PTO pin". They're simply a locking pin with wire retainer. I've been meaning to do mine since I built the car...one day I'll get to it!

I got mine from VW heritage- simple idea but make life so easy! couple that with a removable rear valance and Hi Pac access panels - engine removal is a breeze!

ive seen some people make their whole rear end removable but im really not a fan of chopping the rear body work around THAT much.

I prefer quick-release "Pip" pins. The ones I used are 1/4" x 3".
