thanks a lot guys, i'm really pleased that i got a line on the gears
looking forward to getting them, shimmed and adjusted my old gears,
but their a little noisy now, think I burred a tooth, getting them back together, so
cant wait for the new ones
here's a pic of the boat on the water

Ok, fitted and test run the gears, all good. I had to try a few different combinations of the 4 gears to get the best result, they were a bit tight, locking up at first, but I got it sorted, so all good !!!
I gave the boat a good run yesterday, went well. I'm happy with the new gears.

I did a silly thing with the motor however , Running up some rapids, that wern't QUITE deep enough,had a bit of trouble - now instead of a propeller, I have only a HUB. So now I need to find a EP1 prop. I had a set of props that i grabbed a while ago, slightly different, smaller blades, same pitch, same diameter, larger hole. I put one of those on with a brass tube as a spacer, tried it out, and the boat performs slightly BETTER ? cant work that one out
