PostPost by: miked » Wed Mar 15, 2017 12:00 pm

Complete new heavy duty gear set and shafts etc. New synchro hubs, springs, blocker bars. New synchro rings. All new bearings and seals and gaskets. New tail bush.
This is a snap ring type box. Straight cut 3J Drive line close ratio set.
From 3J advert:
Latest 3j gear design and comes with a brand new main shaft which carries a larger than standard spigot bearing. Main shaft gears run on caged needle roller bearings. Gear faces have 3J milled oil pockets and oil scrolls throughout the bore have to increase oil flow and the lubrication of gears Gear kit - 2.5, 1.66, 1.61, 1.0

These gear sets, IMO, are on a par with the semi helical sets now regarding working sound. I would say that they are the same. Now surplus to requirements. I should have stayed with this box but went for one on the Semi Helical not realising they have some sporty noise too..
See Photos. If interested please PM me. Looking to recover material cost. Thanks Mike :)
