Talking The Gearbox Saga

Here is Thelma's gearbox- the circlip had come off the output seal and lost all the oil down the drive shaft - a bit tricky to spot as it means there is no telltale slick of oil running out.



some very nice people worked on Thelma - she was enjoying the attention





and before I knew it they were all waving me off


Huge thanks to Dave and the team at Anderwerks in Calgary - a legend in the bike travel world.

(may I add that I suspect the Canadian post to have environmental concerns: I'm pretty sure they have a Moose delivery system )
Tiffany: more pics! I want to know what the side-car will have to go through before reaching Montreal, falling apart as it is...

Hi Tom
thanks so much for your help at the workshop with the dodgy coil and the whirlwind tour of Toronto

I am now in Montreal staying with a GS 1100 RTW couple and talking travel non-stop. I`ll also be searching out some more photos to post up.

Hi folks,

I just got a call from Tiffany (whom we had the pleasure of meeting this week when she stayed a couple of days with us). She is currently about 300 kilometers from Labrador city (which would put her roughly in the middle of nowhere) and her starter is acting up. She thinks that getting to Labrador city will not be a problem but she will most likely need help once she gets there. From what I could gather, the starter is making a rather unpleasant "I'm about to die so just leave me be" kind of noise. She does not have internet access right now but will check in once she gets to Lab city.

Is there anybody in Labrador city that can help her sort out this starter problem? Anybody ever had repairs done up there, please pipe in!

Sorry, offhand I don't know anyone in Lab City who could help, straight8 went through there a few days ago and is close to me now.

Tiffany you're welcome to pop up a tent in my yard when you make it this far but I'm off to work on Wednesday.

Good luck, I hope you get a fix, if you make it to St. John's give Keith a call at the "Toy Box" for expert mechanical help, sorry I don't have the number handy.

I just got home from Mongolia last week, wonderful country isn't it?

Safe travels
mike

Question In Lab City

HI Everyone
many thanks for your advice and helpful comments, I just got to the city - bloody hell I thought, we have villages bigger than this in England, I think the population is about 2000!
Which means the sources of help will be somewhat limited.

I'll be looking up Mc Fadden (the local guy) whoever that is.

There is a chance that I can nurse Thelma through to the other side of Labrador and the ferry to Newfoundland, but I'd like to try and get it a bit sorted here, at the moment I dare not go too far from the road (not that it's much of a road) in case she won't start before the battery dies trying.
It's the whirring instead of firing noise.
Tom in Toronto knows the more technical description

And yes, Skibum Mike, I'll be taking you up on the offer of the tent space - but where are you?
