History
I just bought this in July of 2010.
It had a bad tranny (no 2nd gear) and the drop box for the MFWD was bad. A used drop box came with it. Now for the fun part. The clutch pack was questionable, so I separated the clutch housing. The throwout bearing was resting on the drive shaft - one of the springs was sprung and disconnected. The clutch pack is worn out.
Then, I separated the clutch from the tranny and found the pinion shaft had been broken and "WELDED". Then I found the drop box was distroyed and damage fed back through to stip the 2nd gear and break the bearings. Now I have to pull apart the final drives to pull the differential to replace the pinion shaft.
After all this I still love the machine. It is a beast. Now if I can only get it back together!!!
