Well I'm really pee'd off tonight, the pidometer wasn't working due to the rear bracker not being present. No worries, take it all apart, cut down and fit the bracket, put it all back together. Except that the damn thing won't pick up at anything more than 600 mm odd away from the sensor/transmitter. I tried a new battery, no difference, it looks like the transmitter is dying....
Whats the chances of finding another that'll fit in the piston mount?

Been out and about on the trike, local vintage rally today. I've noticed I have a high speed whine, and 1st gear roughness. I'm hoping its the axle, but not really sure, so I guess the next step is to drop the oils to see if there is any glitter in there. Bugger...

Took the grandkids out for a spin earlier, the screaming gears had got worse. So I jacked it up and had a look. It didn't take long to notice the gearbox output shaft bearing cover was loose. One 5mm stud snapped, one nut lost and two loose. So I drained the engine oil so I could sift through it to check for bits, put the tray down on the wheeled seat, turned and walked away, and it tipped all over my workshop floor.....
Anyway, now to clean up the mess, strip the propshaft out as well as the drive gear for inspection. I hope its ok, more than anything so the rest of the engine won't have been damaged as a consequence.

The output shaft and gear came out looking good, but a close look at the drive gear revealed one side of each tooth pitted and worn. So tomorrow I will buy a new output gearbox. Oh btw, the oil that didn't spill all over the garage floor didn't reveal any metal filings. Kind of begs the question - is the bevel gear wear new, or something that's been going on from day 1 - anyone been inside one of these?

A replacement bevel box has been fitted, now nice and quiet. Now I can hear all the other grumbles.
Took it to Cresswell quay meet last night, cold on the way home.

Just caught up with this thread. So it was definitely the bevel gear then?

Well it was singing because it was loose - at least 5mm out of mesh by the time I found it. If I'd tightened it all up would it have been Ok? I dunno...
Whatever, its ok now.
