1 down 1 to go.......

The Oldspeed gearbox of the '54 is nearly back together with the new 3rd & 4th gears installed, some slight modification was required on the case to accept the taller 4th gear.
Now just the '53 one to assemble.......

We tidied up the workshop today and found the box of NOS King & Link pins we had misplaced, so a few hours were spent fitting them into the dropped spindles that the '53 will run.
