Got a customer who has trashed his five speed in his SP. Anybody got a good late model five dog box out of a Cali or the like lying about that they want rid of?Pete
Shock absorber spring has shattered, spring collapses, collets retaining spring cap pop out, fifth gear then mills away cap until box is full of swarf. Finally piece of metal from *Somewhere* gets caught between driving gears. Box locks up but inertia imposes such extreme forces on the output shaft that it bends like a banana.Un Breakable? No. Cost effective to *Repair*? No. Buy joe's 1100 mile box from US for $500. Shipping to here? <$200. Build *New* box internals into old cases with 3205AC3 bearings and shim drum correctly? $550-700 unless there is a problem, (How the f*ck would I know but I trust Joe.). Overall cost to customer? Sub two grand and he ends up with a basically *New* gearbox rather than building something out of a variety of shitters or simply replacing the bits that can't be salvaged.To me the choice is very, very simple.Pete
