No I am not talking about what happens when you run a box out of oil, this would be on purpose... lol
I have a situation where the production spline count change on a manual transmission's 5th is preventing me from having the "perfect" ratios that would result from a hybrid geartrain.
I've read (see link @ bottom for one reference to it) that there are some people who regularly weld inner & outers together. Anyone put me in touch with a shop who feels they can do that? I want the inner spline section of one gear cut out and fit into another gear. I think I, or a friend, already have the gears.
Not drag race or road race, but some reasonably aggressive street, so I don't want someone experimenting, who knows nothing of how the machining or welding is correctly done, drastically lowering the torque capacity of the box. This is enough of an "experiment" at best...
Gears are not that heavy, someone suggested sending them to England, that they had heard of a shop there doing this kind of work...?http://books.google.ca/books?id=TsBde1e ... &q&f=false
