Ferret gearbox - last resort adjustment!

V623 Chapter 4

   (Ver 1)

 

Folowing the email discussion below, I have uploaded the EMER that covers how to do the gearbox adjustment. This assumes you are having slippage problems, that you have tried the 30-pedal-pumps-in-each-gear remedy and are still having problems.

Note that I have never got around to making up the "special tool", but I would recommend that you do it rather than use the "over centre" method.

The scans below are quite big in order that they will print out properly, so be patient!

Original email
There is a set of adjustments in an EMER that are a last resort before pulling the gearbox and replacing the bands (even if you do a pull, you still need the correct EMER in order to get everything set up properly).

It gives instructions for doing it using the inevitable "special tool" but it also gives a field adjustment using a technique called "over centre". The latter is how mine was done as I was receiving the instructions, at night, over the telephone, long distance, whilst jumping in and out of my Ferret.
At that time, the internet was merely a plaything of nerds using Unix commands and the bloke who had the EMER had the only known copy in civilian hands in Australia and wasn't about to photocopy it even if I paid whatever he felt like charging.
(Another one of those egomaniacs that wants to control everyone and everything and thus be the "Guru" in that particular hobby.)

I stress that if you get inside the gearbox and start fiddling, you will stuff it up! You MUST have the instructions to get it right.

I now have hardcopy of most EMERs so if you need anything, get in touch and I will scan it in and put it up on the website and you can download it from there.

Should you download this info and use it, please let me know. That way I can get some idea of what is needed and what isn't and whether or not I am wasting my time providing technical info such as this.
