I need your opinions on my gear shaft. I'm getting close to re-building the engine and need to know if the gear shaft is sh***ed.
Is the discolouring on the shaft of any concern. There are also 1 or 2 pitted areas on the teeth.
Would you re-use or replace. Place your votes.
I did take it to a local mechanic and he said it looked ok but if the pitting had gone any further across the teeth it would need replacing. Id really appreciate a 2nd opinion before I install it. I dont want to be gritting my teeth every time I put it in 1st gear!!
I'm not sure how deep the case hardening goes. You can get a decent gearbox for £100 and bearing in mind the damage a displaced gear tooth or the delamination of the gear its probably better to change, now you know about it.
Where’s the best place to look for used gearbox parts. I’ve tried fleabay but all I can find are new banshee parts. I’d have to buy the 1st gear wheel to go with the new banshee shaft. Most adverts are overseas so I’d have the import tax to add to the cost as well!!! It’s a RD350R ypvs 4CE (1995).
