Broken Gearbox?


Dear All,

On a recent drive, my gearbox broke and i was fortunate to still have the 4th gear to get me home. I don't understand how this can be and not sure what is broken. Just before i lost my gears, there was high pitch/winding noise. Last year i rebuilt my engine and put new clutch in, but there was always a noise form the gearbox (not in 4th), which i assumed was my thrust bearing because everytime i de-clutched it went away.

Can anyone tell me what broke and whether i can fix it or why it broke. Any info would be a benefit

Kind Regards


My gearbox got stuck in 5th,

My gearbox got stuck in 5th, there was a small pin somewhere in the top cover that had broken.... I didnt fix it myself but a new top cover plate assembly was fitted and all has been fine since....

Looking for rear seats and belts for my 97 Fieldman F78. Also looking for round dash clock. Leicester area preferred. PM me.


Cheers, i'll have a look at that when i take it off
