Gear guard

Post  hughb on Sun 31 Jan 2010, 9:24 am

Hi All
Well I guess that this may help some one at some point {I hope}.
I had to take off the guard that is over the gears for the 3rd time .IT IS A PAIN...... Sad
But I have solved this by cutting it down a bit ... Smile The best way I find is some pics for
you .So here they are .

This was cut badly with a dremmel drill and then filed and sanded and painted ....

Just put on to see what it is like ....This may help some or not ...

Please tell me what ALL you guys think

Hugh i dont think that looks right it should come down around the gears a bit Neutral i take it the guard wouldnt fit over the gears? I would speak to STW about that as it does look wrong plus its an extra place fo some little kid to come a long and jam his finger between the edge of the guard and the top of the gear when on the move!

But it up to you Hugh its your engine and if you think it looks ok then thats all that matters things can sometimes look worse in a picture than they actually are!

Are you sure the diff is in the right place? as if it went in a bit more the gaurd should go on over the gear! just a thought

Hugh the other guard will only cover the little drive gear on the end of the diff gear.

But like i said its your engine and if your happy thats all that matters. I thought you had done it because it didnt fit over but as your pm says it fitted fine but now you can slide your gears of without removing the gear guard.

Oh and where is my other picture of the engine as it is now?

Hi Hugh,

If it was done for removing the gears with it still on then I dont blame you i've had to take mine off 2 or three times also.. I'm setting up my gear change and gears first then will put it back on and add the reverser later once i'm happy with my gear setup..

My gear gaurd did clash with the gears at first but this was due to the brass counter sunk screws that hold the brass diff lock housing onto the end second shaft. They were not counter sunk that deep and the screw heads sticking out was stopping the inner bevel gear from going fully back/on meaning the diff and gears were sticking out too far.. took the screws out one at a time and added more counter sink to the holes. now the gears fit and the guard misses them.. The only thing needed was some metal taking off a bolt head that holds the tender on as it was hitting the brake drum on the diff/gears.
