WHere to get a gear box or rebuild

Post by Shem »

So, leading on from my last post, its confirmed I need a new gear box. (mine had seized) :-(

Rebuild seem to be a 3 week wait or more, and ideally Id like to buy one thats already been rebuilt, so I can get it whacked in and make the most of summer. (Sods law it broke this time of year, especially as were a go away every weekend family)

Any advice appreciated

Shem :ok
