|Thread: Myford Change Gear trouble|
Before you leap to any further conclusions.
Consider if the Anchor Pin, part no A3015 Dwg Ref 203 is correctly assembled into the base of the gearbox. Its depth is set by a single Socket Setscrew (from below). If correctly set this is what hold the quadrant in the correct position to ensure the gears do in fact properly align, without adding any spacers to the gear train.

|Thread: Electricity Supply|
Nobody has out together the requirement for adequate electricity generation (by any means) to power all these future EVs and trucks. Please do not just say renewables, frankly the grid will not cope in its present state.
