          So the new gearboxes came from NWSL this week....and to install them require me to remove on driver and gear from the axles, never having done this before, I don;t have a gear puller......so I looked online $25 isn;t bad for a useful tool.....but I wanna get started THIS WEEKEND......So with a Bolt, and some schedule 40 and a benchgrinder and a little ingenuity...

                      I have been doing a little work, the gearboxes are installed front and rear, just need to finish putting the front engine back together, there is also a trailing truck under construction. The motor arrived yesterday too, so just as soon as I get some time, I can start putting the driveline together!!!

                          Got the front engine mostly put together and the gearbox installed....s.till a minor bind to track down, but I think it might be a quartering issue. Check out the driveline geometry though, I think need an intermediate shaft, cutting the rear shaft about halfway back and then connecting to the driveline of the front engine....whatchall think?

                            Looks good, but how does it run?

                              Bart, enjoying the build. Adding an intermediate shaft would probably help vertical flexibility, but might not be needed if your running on the flat.
                              Cheers, Heath.
