|Maybe I could make dentures...|
|Some of the detent balls. That extra peice in the center is part of a broken spring...yeah, not right.|
|1st/2nd gear hub assembly, with synchro (which is brass, but dirty, obviously)|
|Note that I used the "fat" end of the punch (turned around from this picture) so to minimize damage to the input shaft recess.|
|Looks good to me! That's the cluster (lay) shaft above it, spiral cuts for oil flow (I assume).|
The clutch came off with no problems and the inspection turned out pretty well. No damage and, from what I can tell, minimal wear. The gouge in the release lever was definitely caused by the clutch pressure plate bolts, but they were much tougher and didn't suffer any direct damage.
|Release lever plate. But, those bolts in the picture are what rubbed into the release lever, I believe.|
|The pressure plate...dirty, but surface looks good with adequate friction grooves.|
|Looks good...I decided to clean up one brass rivet...just because.|
So, all in all a good day and it only took a few hours. I'm going to go back through the gearbox tomorrow and make sure I understand what I need and maybe partially re-assemble it if necessary to measure clearances as required. But, again, based on what I found, I think the gearbox is pretty solid and I don't expect to require much work outside of the expendable wear parts and the one synchro hub!
