I really hate winter. 6 degrees below zero today :o

I manage to clean the gearbox today. But the mess in the bottom was frozen, so i had to defrost it with gas.
Filled up with new oil and bolted it with silicone and new screws.

Than i spent some time on the glide rails. They were pretty worn so i welded new flat bar on top of it.

Now i have to wait for the bearing to arrive before i can do anything more.

New drive chain fitted. The old drive chain was pretty stretched out.
