More progress on the gearbox. Working on the top cover locating the pinion gear and pocket for the ring gear to fit in. A counterbore will be built and welded in place for the pinion bearings and a steel surround panel that will go over the ring gear. I also have to add an oiling channel to funnel oil being flung off of the ring gear to feed the upper pinion bearing. Once the pinion and bearings are installed, the cover can be centered so locating dowels and bolt holes can be created in the flange. Bit of a puzzle to figure out but it is getting closer to the downside where it is getting easier and being completed.
