In an earlier post David Wheeler said: “It is not practically possible to remove the box without taking out the engine as it is too difficult to refit the clutch operating yoke”. Maybe all Aprilias are not the same in this respect because I have all-too vivid memories of doing just this several times with my 1939 Lusso.

There was a time when my car was chewing its way through clutch release bearings and because of other pressures and the need to keep the car on the road it was easier to replace the bearings (about £1 and10 shillings from Edmunds Walker, my local stockist) rather than find a proper solution, which is another story.

As I remember it, it was possible to jiggle the clutch ‘fork’ into place before inserting the vertical rod through the bell housing and tightening the pinch bolt. But then lots of things seemed easier to do in the 1960s!

When the gearbox output shaft on my car sheared on my car I removed the gearbox in the road without removing the engine.  I then took the box into work (the deHavilland Engine Company) where the machine tool repair department kindly rebuilt it for me.  I do not recall having much difficulty either removing or replacing it, but it was a long time ago.

Well, since my box has decided it doesn't want to go into 1st or reverse any more I might just try it...
