Have you set the photos or the album to public or share. I can only assume yours have changed to private for some reason. Or did you move them to a new folder with in google photos? Can you till see the photos I posted? Theyre hosted on google.

Do they have the little link shared thing under the photos or albums like that? If we cant sort this you can always email me the photos and ill host them for you.

Hi everyone sorry it’s taken so long for me to upload these but here are some more pictures of the gearbox going back together! They’re in the wrong order so from the bottom, you have to put the gear cluster in a press in order to be able to refit the circling - the thing my finger is pointing at is a spring/ tube like component!

Tightening of the pinion bearing nut, this needs a special socket and fortunately I have a friend of a friend who lent me a Hewland socket that fits you just need to remove the reverse idler first!

Finally re-fit clutch release bearing tube and gear selector seal and it’s ready to go back in the car!

It’s all back in now and third to second no longer crunches however it seams I should have replaced the diff bearings because the output flanges are still leaking so I guess there’s a little to much play!
