Hi Andy, I've got the engine out. Took me a while and was reluctant to start on pulling the gearbox apart. Started today and got quite a long way, but the difficult part might still be ahead. I'm just going blind hoping not to make any big mistakes. Of course, the reverse part is right at the bottom and I don't know if that is accessible from that side of the GB. There is a cover that can be removed, but I have visions of all kind of springs jumping at me when I would pull it off. Will keep going as I do now and hope to get to it tomorrow (Sunday). I just got a request from a guy that is doing up an Aero and needs a guard. Are your guards still OK on the Aero? By the way, I'm in Papakura.
