Hey loyal followers. I was playing with the gearbox today and wow she sure is pretty inside. The box is a HF7B2. Old and tatty on the outside but lovely on the inside.

Me being me, I had to pull it apart to see how it work. Everything was going great till i pulled 6 seemingly unimportant rods out then I heard some parts falling inside the box.

You can imagine my surprise coupled with a OH SH*T feeling when I opened the case to find a pile of pinion bearings and cogs. These seemingly unimportant rods turned out to be rather important rods. Go figure!

Anywho, now I'm sitting here with two piles of pinion bearings, 6 cogs (half long and half short, some thrust looking plates and I haven't a clue where they go lol. Argh fu*k it. Time for a drink I think lol.

I have a manual from chriscraft boats that is on the paragon box but the manual doesn't show the six cogs so not sure how they go back in and in which order. Then there's the issue of trying to remake these pinion bearings and reinstall them without the pinions falling out everywhere lol

Sometimes I am my own worst enemy.

Well if anyone has experienced this or knows how to put my gearbox together Id love to hear from you :-D failing that ill have to pay someone to put this section together.

Cheers boys!

Hendo

Crap happens. You'll sort it out before long I'm sure.

Have a good day

I'll be flying thru Perth on Thursday on myway home to Bris from Port Hedland. Will only be stoping over in the QANTAS lounge for a couple of hours.
Any how I will have a couple of Little Creature pale ales on the strength of it all.
Hope the rebuild goes well for you.
Cheers
Benn

Crikey! Are You a FIFO worker based out of Brisbane?

I did FIFO for a few years but out of Perth. I got offered a Perth based management role. Best decision I made. FIFO was putting a toll on the family.

Cool. I was a HSE manager for RIO TINTO up at Port Headland before my current job.

I sent wes an email and he replied. He wanted me to bring my section down as he had one to replace it with but I think I must have forgotten to say I live in Perth lol. I advised him that the parts were fine and all i wanted was either someone to put it together or sell me the gasket kit and instruction book but I don't expect to get a reply till tomorrow.

On the upside, I found a place here called Marine Transmission WA. I have been searching for Marine gearbox places all day and found nothing. I didn't think to use the word transmission but when I did waa laa :-)

Hopefully they can help me. Their website looks promising.

I did that about forty years ago and what a mess. I did manage to get the transmission back together and she worked fine with never a problem after that. I tell you it took me a bunch of hours to get er sorted out.

Good luck, but i have confidence you will get er done......in time.....

" If it`s not broken don`t try to fix it", but I guess it needed dismantling.
With anyone else I`d say get an expert, but with you, not sure you`ll need one.

Yeah it's a PITA now but I'm glad it did it. The oil cooler that got its cracked water bonnet replaced had leaked water into the paragon at some stage and resultant light surface rust is in sections so happy to find out now than later. Well that's my justification and I'm sticking to it haha

:-D

Yup my thoughts exactly mate. I'm glad I got the oil cooler rebuilt. Can only imagine what condition that was in :-/

All good tho. It's stinking hot down here atm so it's nice to be working inside for a change and not outside in the blistering sun. The admiral has "allowed" me to bring the parts inside and she has also "allowed" me to sit at the table to do these parts as the ducted Air con is on 19deg C. Mind you tho, it wouldn't take much to run some ducting to the garage and then I can have an Air Conditioned garage. Be great in winter when we flick it over to heat. Hmmm! Lol

Any dismantled engine under repair in Oz is kept in the bath so no parts get lost. What Admiral could object to that?
RTF is developing worrying Australianisms, " (good) on yer, mate!" ("good" is silent, "sport" can be substituted for "mate").
Sounds so hot in WA, the sticks are chasing the dogs.
You could box the gearbox and send it to Britt to fix, let`s think... freight both ways, he last fixed one 40 years ago, maybe not....
