    "If your box is a cone type it will have a double ended male conical piece which is threaded onto a helical shaft. At either end of this shaft are fixed female cones. The idea is that when you engage the male cone with one of the female cones, the torque screws it in tightly and transmits the drive. One for fwd and one for reverse. Problems arise if you use an oil that is too slippery, or if the friction material that is bonded to the female cones wears. (early ones were just metal to metal) Also I found that the small circlip that takes the reverse thrust is too light and can pop off, leaving you with no gears at all. Regards, Richard."

    Hi just wondering where you got the cone relined please?
