HOME and how to join Forum Open Area General Scott topics Gearbox boss locating peg Re: Re: Gearbox boss locating peg


Many thanks Brian! As usual, I am now much better informed. It seems I am fortunate as there is no sign of any stress to the cover around the ‘dowel’ area. Thus, I’m hoping the drilling operation will proceed OK. Who knows I may even be able to make the next area meet on the Scott 😀

Judging by the state of the fixing strap I think the “start on the stand” technique has been used repeatedly by previous owner/s as the boss had forced itself beyond its correct position. It probably also accounts for the large crack in the old boss as well. Its an elegantly simple design but (as with all things) susceptible to abuse.
