Started this discussion. Last reply by paul bishop Jul 7. 2 Replies

Have a p200e and am doing gearbox job. Couple of questions, when the gears are fitted to shaft, should the slots for cruciform all be aligned, or is there no difference? Next question, are the gears…Continue

P200E selector box

The one I have the pawl is about .5mm below the gasket surface. I have 3 boxes and all are the same. Have to replace as there is wear in shaft, and now not sure if the…See More
