Feathers and bones

Transmission problems :-(
 Basket of parts. Transmission teardown for noise and hard shifting.

 Case worn for cluster shaft, causing leak and other problems.

Cluster gears worn and chipped.

Bearing damage.

At least one artsy picture of the gears. I plan to hone my welding skills with some art statue to the goddess of speed.

The plan is to replace the broken T75 5-speed transmission with a more robust and common World Class T5 transmission.

So the Jaguar is back up on jack stands and off the road waiting for what develops. So I know where my non-interest bearing government savings account tax refund is going.
