 cheers
Sorry.  Make that seven e-mails. 

Just a bit of trivia.  If I would've had the work that went on in Germany done in the U.S. by others, the cost would've been around $50,000.  So all of you who are Black Lightning supporters, let's give Hartmut and team a big hoorah!

Max......ya got what was coming to you.

Dedication and assistance that your crew has extended to you only occurs when the recipient deserves that support.

And they won't be quitting on you. Their assistance to you will only quit when you do.

Okay boys and girls
As Max said - the liner needs a lot of food to produce the results we are all hoping for. My friends and I gave the best that I could afford. I cleared the customs crap today and am good to go. On wednesday morning I will drive the big box to Frankfurt airport and deliver it to Lufthansa Aircargo to send it back home. 310 kg of hard work, much ingenuity of my friends ( a bit from me too  smiley and a lot of begging for material and working help - all of this pain in the neck and laying awake at nights to find a solution for a problem - all of this will leave me now. It has been four months of work that I could not have done in that time on my own. So the big hooraah goes to all my buddies as well. They are real friends - everyone that was asked for parts or labour did it free or for a much smaller charge.
Now its another couple weeks of nightshifts to get me afloat again - have to order a flight soon. If you enjoyed the rebuild pics here and bump into me on the salt this year - buy me a beer - Cheers

Hartmut, I'll extend our thanks to you - just like I betcha a hundred others will do.  You and we have met on the salt once or twice - but that doesn't matter as much as it does for me to let you know how much we appreciate your work for and with Max.  I'll thank you for the fine photos you've been supplying (and Stainless has been posting) - they've made it far easier for the folks here on Landracing.com to follow the build and to enjoy seeing how much you have done.

Thanks - and best wishes to you and the entire team.

OK folks, Max announced he had a bunch of stuff from Hartmut, here it comes
From Hartmut 23 June
Got the ground stuff a bit earlier so called Mike and met at his shop this morning. We put the case on the mill and milled the bores for the spindles. The lousy output bearing hole was opened up until we had the recesses removed. This turned out to be 4mm larger than the new, much bigger bearing that I wanted to fit in there. So I went to the lathe and produced a stepped bearing holder. For the first time the gears were now assembled in the box. Had to remove some material from the spacers of the layshaft - not much. The box spins freely. Tomorrow morning I will assemble the selector stuff completely. I am too tired now - was working on the box for 12 hours - time for a break.

smearing ultra lube on all bearings, assembled the layshaft. Mainshaft gets inserted in the other half with the selector ring "off" and as soon as the shaft slips in the bearing, the selector ring has to be put on.  Then it all slips home

gearbox on the lathe. Tested it in all three gears. The air shifter works down to 6 bar - whatever that is in your funny psi. Gears "snap" in instantly - super fast shifting possible. The selector pic shows the plungers that are under spring pressure. The springs have a tension of 20 kg, the air cylinder makes 40. So he overrides the spring and puts the box in gear. As soon as the air pressure is off, the springs bring the selector back to neutral position. This is necessary to make the safety pin work. In each of the selector shafts is a grove. The pin slides into the grove and the other shaft is free to move. Should you put the air into two cylinders accidentally, the box is not able to shift. Very good safety feature as the box goes instantly into neutral if pressure is off

24 June... it's late in Germany
We started to load the lump - I am missing a couple screws. 2  1/4" about 3/4 " long for the gearbox case and one or two for the rear primary case. And I'm missing a couple feet of the water hose. The metric screws in the gearbox case are all with a 4mm key - you have the same size so no problem for your tools.
Tomorrow morning I get the sprockets from hardening - then its loading everything up, get the customs crap squared away. Probably on Wednesday I will travel to Frankfurt airport and deliver the box. Man - I am tired, got up at 6 as I was not sure if this prototype gearbox works as desired - now its 7.30 pm and everything is fine. I fitted a new bearing in the outboard carrier of the drive sprocket and while I was at it I put two dowels in as well - just as you requested. The bearings in the case are all much bigger and stronger than before so I guess there should be no problem.


Nice work there Hartmut.... OK folks, looks like the lump will be back soon...
