  1. Blue smoke from where? Richard
  2. And when bleeding, changing filters, and other such routine stuff A spill back to tank is so much more convenient Richard
  3. I must admit, I prefer to see a spill back to tank if you can. Richard
  4. It's in my mind that some of the smaller Listers do this. Let me check the manuals Richard
  5. G.B. Marine? Richard
  6. Many of the more modern boxes conform to an SAE standard, so the fixing bolt pattern and input shaft dimensions are the same. You'll find this is true for some PRM, ZF/Hurth and Tecnodrive boxes Richard
  7. One of the problems is in deciding what to replace. It's a toss up between only replacing the forward clutch and assuming the reverse pack is OK, and replacing both making the cost of the rebuild more than the cost of a new box Plus, these boxes need a whole stack of parts pressing on and off one of the shafts, while making sure delicate parts don't get caught or fall out, which takes time. Richard
  8. Who would warn that the cost of rebuilding Hurth or ZF boxes is usually within around £100 of buying a new box. Which model is it? Richard
  9. It is, in fact, dead easy. The hardest part is probably accessing the bolts - which are Whitworth of course. Chances are the hardest one is missing Put a mark across the two metal parts of the coupling, slacken or remove the fuel pipes, take out the bolts, slide the pump back. You'll probably find the pump shaft rotates a bit until the cam followers hold the camshaft still. Take out the old coupling, put in the new one. Turn the engine by hand using the flywheel (and decompressors) until your marks line up and then put it all back together. If you took the pipes off, bleed the pump You can only put this back together right, or half a revolution out - and if you mark the coupling you won't get it half a revolution out Richard
  10. Check to see if it is marked first Richard
  11. It's fun that 3 cylinder flywheel on a 2 cylinder engine isn't it. It took me some time with a bit of chalk to work out what marks I could rely on (number 2 from memory) As you say, chances are you'll find the bearings have gone in the pump Richard
  12. Leaderboard? Seriously??? Richard
  13. Give Sue a ring on 01926 356200. I'm not sure if we have one in stock, we like a challenge Richard
