Thought I'd better do an update to let you all know where I'm at with my smokey engine problem and my noisy gearbox
I decided to tackle the gearbox problem first and have managed to get hold of a good Kanzaki
KBW10 which came off a 3GM30
. The bell housings are different but the box is the same. I had trouble separating my old tranny from the engine 'cause the damper disk was rusted so bad it was almost as if it was welded to the input shaft. I had to cut an acess hole in the housing to get at the damper disk bolts and managed to get the thing apart. Now the tranny is home in my workshop and I still can't get the disk off the shaft. I've tried soaking it, heating
it, and pulling it and have pretty well destroyed the disk in the process but she remains stuck fast. I'm trying electrolysis
now as my last resort. I've got it soaking in a baking soda solution with a battery charger
connected to it. I'd like to think I'll go out to the shed in the mornibg and see the disk laying in the bottom of the bucket, but it's a big ask.
I just priced a new Damper Disk from Minard's in Queensland
. The original Yanmar part number is 124772-81050 and it must have 10 splines to fit the KBW10 tranny. Minards have quoted $AU366 delivered. Does anyone know where I can get a new disk a little less expensive?
My smoky engine will have to wait until I get this disk problem sorted.
