You can contact me at or visit my Home Page

The tranny has some bearing noise and when I drained the gear lube I found 2 broken teeth from the spider gears so it's time for arebuilt. It's been 40,000 miles and 12 years since it was origianly done. I contacted Gary Berg since he built it originally and he was glad to do it. Once I remvoed the engine and transmission I had to build a crate to ship it in.
