Would this guide be any use to the VOC/BKV thing? I mean printing it off, and having them as handouts etc for people to have a read up on the 300 series?

In side of a FAQ, how about a wiki, people can easily add stuff to it as and when questions come up, people can post guides to stuff they have done etc

btw, I have no clue how to set one up. I tried googling but there were too many acronyms, these were the type where the case changes in the middle :lol:

I'll see what I can do. Been talking about it to a few folk, now is really time to stop talking and start doing something. :oops: Give me a month or so.

Can we please add this to the main FAQ? I don't think many people knew this until I found out through Jani:

Can you use a 360 box in a 340 and vice-versa?
Yes, if it's a 5-speed. But you'll need to swap over two main parts.

Firstly, the front plates should be taken off to be mounted on the front of your new gearbox. This is because the torque tube (360) and prop shaft (340) have completely different arrangements of connecting.

Secondly you'll need to swap the front shafts over. 360 and 340 boxes use different shafts with completely different spline arrangements. All you need to do is remove the front shaft and gear as seen just to the left of this gearbox:

Image

They are held in with a circlip (thanks again jani :D ). All you need to do is insert that into your new box and bolt your new front plate on. Jobs a goodun!

There we go, both bits added :) Even though the wiki is being put together, i wonder whether this would be useful as a PDF? Something that can be printed off instead of having to keep checking on here? Thomas...................

It's a good idea but bear in mind that perhaps most of the information should be collected first, otherwise you'll have multiple versions of the document floating around every time this is updated.

Nah, what's wrong with going to the Wiki, under heading "Toolbox" on the left and clicking "Printable version" and just printing it off if you need it. :wink:

PDF? Pffft! Whatever next? Are youse lot going to be asking for stuff in MS Word Document format? :roll: :P sm6

Well if your really have to have a PDF, select printable version on the wiki, and print it to a PDF file, instead of paper? :?
