HI,

If you ever pull the trigger on a kit PM me, I'd like to bribe you to install one for me too ;-)

(Not to many people in VA I know would even want to attempt this....install that is).

Thanks!

Andrew

Sorry everyone. I have had medical issues. I finally am on the mends and feeling a lot better. I have been in contact with Ramid and FedEx. I made a box using 3/4 ply, with one gear box and both kits. It weighs in at 149lb. I am told by FedEx I should have a shipping label e-mailed to me today. Fingers are crossed. Now that I am moving around freely I need to get my wagon, minus trans, out of my friends yard. I have a lot of projects I need to catch up on and priorities are my my TDI's.

No. August 25th was last word I got from Ramid. He wrote the gearbox is in Prague, and he was dealing with the customs administration. He has not responded since. I am confused because FedEx responded with gearbox was delivered on August 21. We will see.

I do not know yet. I shipped it to them using their TNT shipping account through FedEx here in the states. I hope to find out soon when Ramid informs me how much I owe him. :-)

We have a very good offer from TNT ( in US FedEx ) and the price of shipping in one direction from US to us is 300 USD.

Although all the permanent gear nuts are tightened, the shaft is completely free ( see video ): https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2d...l5R0ZyUTQ/view

There is no adjustment shim under the bearing tl. 0.5 mm. The same is on the imput shaft, there is 0.35 mm

This does not happen by usage, it is a poorly assembled gearbox.


This gearbox could not work, the malfunction would occur even if it was not modified.
