Inability to access technical help

Posted by jim_hill at July 04. 2017

please can someone take a look at the technical help access, I am logged in and I have entered the reminder details (surname and mem. No.) several times,but I just keep getting booted back to home page, most frustrating when I have a problem and need some tech info. I don't moan very often but this is one of those probes where one feels so helpless just going round in circles. Thanks in anticipation, 100583  Jim Hill

I would like access the excellent diagram published in road holder probably about 2 years ago, which gave an excellent explanation of the gearbox, it was intended for the AMC type box but is equally useful for my upright g/b, I believe it is published in the technical section , which I , for some reason, cannot access, thanks in anticipation, Jim Hill. 100583

Just found out how to get into the technical lists, sorry for the rant, not very clear though, found it by accident, anyway, still didn't find what I was after, the beautiful diagrammatic depiction of the 4 speed gearbox showing the power transmission path, got a bit of a "howl" in second and third gear that I need to investigate. Any info would be gratefully received, Jim.

HI Jim,

This may help:

There is also a very good schematic that shows the drive flow through the gearbox (shown above by photographs), unfortunately I can't find the link at present, perhaps someone else may be able to help? 

Regards

Mike

Les Howard's diagram to which Jim refers was published in the July 2012 issue of Roadholder which is available to look at in the Roadholder archives on this web site.

I was able to reference the item using a comprehensive and searchable technical index comprising over 1000 references from Rh ~50 in 1973 to the present day.  I compiled it from a variety of sources and it is rather more useful and accurate than the one currently available.  I have twice offered the data for use by the membership but it seems not to be a priority.

Aha!

Found it & thanks again to Les Howard who produced it!

Good luck!

Les's diagram works best viewed on a PC, as you flick from one page to the next you can see through the magic of 'vision persistence' the gears on the shafts as the gearbox is changed.
