I have the manual (1976 rover) that shows all the parts etc, and I have all of the unobtanium parts, so I'm good there. Just wondering if anyone has any info about where it came from, aprox. date etc etc. It matches almost exactly the one in the manual, except it has a two piece main gear which is the first time I've seen one like this. thanks!

Ive since cleaned out the Cheese/oil/grease.. yuk

Steve, get in touch with Ike. He can probably tell you everything about it in two minutes.

I want to updates this thread with a pic of the shearpin I made up for my late Aeroparts capstan winch.

I came up with this based off a pic I found and my driveline parts. The pin fits great, but only time will tell how she holds up. Perhaps this will help others in the future with their shearpin hunt.
