Re: Gearbox issue...I think?

could have a radial bearing going out in the box! Had one in mine, along with a few other issues, but easy to rebuild in a shop environment if thats the case!

Re: hub seized ???

nah, like Ruagatr said, use a little propane torch and just heat it up and it will probably bump off. I wouldnt suggest putting a rosebud on it for a lengthy amount of time if you know what i mean, get it up a couple hundred degrees and itll come off-----im quite sure that will help.

There are alot of smart people that could be in this biz but when theyy set down and count the costt there is no money iin it. That's why tthe market is cornered. ...

Re: Stinger overhaul

I kinda feel like you get what you pay for. What I mean is I feel confident there is a great deal of RnD that goes into the box and I like knowing quality is swinging behind me. It would not be nice for a cheap gearbox vendor to skimp on quality and allow a blade to open up your skull and let what ...
