Gearbox Removal
« on: 02.06. 2020 00:27 »
Hi all,
I want to remove the gearbox from my 1955 a7 Shooting Star Swinging arm model. After removing everything on the primary side, will the box slide out past its mounts? Regards

Not an answer to your question sorry, but nearly every gearbox job can be done without removing it  *smile* so I guess I’m asking if you REALLY need to remove it, as that is a pain  *work*

You'll need to remove the plates on the right hand side.
