Gearbox Input Shaft

I thought I could do a quick change on the gearbox input shaft.
I was wrong but in the end it is done.
Changing from a 21 to a 10 spline shaft.
The 17 open bearing rollers hold with some grease inside the shaft.
It is the right decision to use my accumulated FJ40, BJ40 and HJ45 parts assortment from 1978-84 in this project.
But nothing fits straight together.
It is so much easier to convert just a driving car.

Twice Cut And Still Too Short

The exact fitting to the housing mounts is a little bit tricky and takes more time.
I had a 13.2 mm shift to the clutch housing mounts in my basis plate.

Adapter Prep

Preparations for the Adapter Plate measurements.

The gearbox needs to be empty.
Also the clutch housing.
Just a mock-up motor and plate to see how it comes together.

Happy Divorce

 After 35 years happy marriage we also have a happy Divorce.
The motor mount side.
The two clutch housing mounts to the frame are missing. So I have to build them...
Passenger side is still missing.

Easy Come Easy Go

OK. The engine was here, but as a dealer, it is my duty to supply emergencies first. The motor went straight on to Rebbl in the Netherlands.
I'll probably get two new WarP 11 again in March.
Anyway, I have been very busy the last weeks working on the original condition with the diesel engine to get a car back and be able to get a historic licence plate...
