I have a Myford ML7 with a standard gearbox (where you have to take the
cover off etc.)
I am having to recondition it, as things were not quite right about it, but
not having seen inside one previously, I am not sure what it is supposed to
be like, so I have a few questions, and if someone can answer with photos,
that would be great. My email for photos is david at revilloc dot com.
The problems I have...
1. The screws supporting the banjo were not supporting it. One was a
straight stud forced into the hole as the screw threads had been stripped,
the other was going the same way, as the hole is a little worse for wear. I
have repaired this and it seems to support it OK.
2. On the banjo is a bar threaded both ends, with two flats to sit in the
banjo. At the side of the flats are "wings", though one of these was missing
and the other was bent in such a position as to be useless. This will have
been due to overtightening the nut on the back. I have made a replacement.
Do I need two? It looks like I do, if I am to have a second stud gear.
3. With the stud in 2 above, if I stick two gears on it, then I have a space
between the gears and the nut to hold them in place. What am I supposed to
use here? Just a washer? does the nut have to be tight? What I am thinking
is that this should be a bearing face...
4. The gear immediately under the reversing gears (prior to stud1) appears
to be just supported on the shaft, nothing holding it in place. There is a
screw head in the end of the shaft. In use, this gear (which is actually a
double gear) is sliding off of this shaft. How am I supposed to hold this
gear in place?
