Engine and Gearbox Woes (1)

Went to take the gearbox off the pallet today and found that the Courier had been less than careful..... the pallet had been subjected to a big enough shock to dislodge the gearbox and damage the nearside rocker cover:
In addition I had no engine mounts!

And then to top it all.... I had been sent the wrong gearbox! I had a 600RR instead of the 600 with the taller 5th gear.

I spoke to Ian at BAE who to be honest was not very happy - Engine mounts are on back order, new rocker covers are being ordered and a replacement gearbox is being sorted for Friday.

This has taken the edge off things..... Engine won't be going in this weekend then!
