Litefoot Posted January 25, 2021 Share Posted January 25, 2021 Hello! I am new to the forum. @OZM29C I'm impressed with your work - it looks great! I have a smaller scale project where I am in process of rebuilding just the weasel final drive. Everything looks pretty good, with exception of the bevel ring gear. The corners of the outside corners of the teeth have been damaged and a bit of metal shavings are in the oil. It appears that the pinion end play is off. I Have found a NOS replacement pinion and ring gear that should fit, though not excited about the prospects of replacing it after reviewing the tech manual. The bearing surfaces of the teeth on the bevel gear look fine, as do the teeth of the pinion gear, so I was hoping rather to clean everything up and shim/tighten up the pinion gear toward the front to correct the contact with the corners bevel ring gear and put back together. Anyone come across anything similar or have advice? Many thanks! Bryan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
