Hello all, I hope you can give me some guidance.

I have a Cat E1 but I have a fault on the gearbox.

What is the best way to get the gearbox out of the chassis ?
Option 1 - Engine and gearbox together
Option 2 - Engine first, then gearbox

I know that either way the nose will have to come off, but I suspect the front chassis member will make option 1 a no go.

This is to fix a speedo issue, speedo drive replaced, issue still remains.

All comments and guidance appreciated.

Regards
Simon

Evening Simon,

The link below will take you to the latest discussion regarding engine removal from a Cat. 

https://forums.tigerownersclub.co.uk/post/engine-out-on-supercat-10427021?highlight=pinto+removal&pid=1311146044

As you will see, there is a variety of opinions and suggestions. However, it's comforting to know that they are all based upon experience and thus all work. Just goes to show there is more than one way to skin a cat(!).

Don't hesitate to raise more queries. I take it you've done all the checks for broken speedo cable etc?

Michael.

Hi, is it not possible to get to the Speedo drive without removing the gearbox? From memory the drive is a plastic gear that that drops into the rear part of the gearbox and the Speedo cable attaches to it. The usual problem is with the cable.

Thanks for the reply TigerEd.
The cable is fine, we have an internal gearbox issue, hence the need to remove the gearbox to resolve.
