The only gear that shows any noticeable wear is the reverse gear that slides on
the reverse gear shaft. The leading edge of the teeth show minor signs of
crunch. The gearbox showed no bad habits before the rebuild except for noise
with the box in neutral and the clutch not applied. The same noise could be
heard while driving as well if you listened for it. The layshaft thrust
washers are worn noticeably where they contact the laygear. I think that was
Any tips on removing the needle bearings from the input shaft and the laygear?
