Poor show, there's still part of the teeth left...  ;D

Rebuilt mine that did the same, or rather JP Race did, so it's deffo saveable.

Going to look into strengthening the gears by some sort of heat treatment.

On a more positive note I have fitted a thermocouple reader which i picked up off eBay from my fellow yellows for £20:



Measuring oil temp, coolant temp, pre and post intercooler.

Looks bloody cool that Robin! I assume its spliced into temp senders for oil and coolant , did you use sensors for the intercooler? Interesting work man, whats the switch or in the switch panel ?

I am using thermocouples in the 4 locations.

The button on the dash is for the gauge.

If you need them I've got spare bolts for a Gripper (I'd take it apart to clean the plates)

Cheers for the offer Yoofy.

I will be sending it off to gripper to have to stripped and rebuilt along with setting the preload - they quoted £80 - 100 to do it.
