After a year of fun, the gearbox seized. My mechanic had a peek inside. Carnage. His diagnosis is that the oil pump had never worked since the box was rebuilt and sold to me with a warranty, and had survived on splash oiling alone. :evil:

That could be described as a bit annoying!

Who built it?

It came from a company called TM Transmissions in the Midlands, who seem to have since ceased trading. Hey ho. :evil:
