Certainly was a good feeling until it came time to reassemble.
All went back together but came to realise that the gearbox is jammed in reverse.
The linkage on the foot, down into the box won't budge at all.
I have a feeling that this could be my own fault in that I'm waiting for the fresh gearbox oil so it is currently drained and when removing the foot I was selecting gears to reveal the linkage nut!!
So I think the jam is in the box and this has revealed another minor glitch, screw off, two nuts undone and I cannot for the life of me prize the front of the gearbox off. Does that plate swivel or is it located? Ie can it be tinkled with a mallet to get it at least rotating?
