I just buttoned up the tranny on my T3, and have done a lot of reading on the subject lately. There is a staked nut on the fwd end of the output shaft which holds the bearing onto the shaft. Apparently, it's not uncommon for the nut to unstake itself and walk itself off the end of the shaft, and machine its way into the case. I bet thats what happened here, and the JB weld is how they fixed the case. Sure woulda been easy to weld it up while box was apart. I guess I'm assuming that the PO opened up the trans to fix the errant nut.

which all worked.

Thanx Blood and Johnny,

This is my first close look at the box. I really really really didn't want to bust open the case, but this comment:I guess I'm assuming that the PO opened up the trans to fix the errant nut.

....Is the resulting wisdom born of experience.

With no experience myself , I'm gonna send it out to Charlie. It's already been put through the ringer once. Who knows what's going on in there?

Not a clue. But I doubt it. The bikes became "Police" or "California" after the motors were manufactured. The 850 motors were used for a variety of bikes. Stamping a P on the block didn't mean that bike got floorboards. Putting floorboards on didn't necessarily mean it became an actual Police bike. It's all very Italian, and my linguini ain't that good!

Paranoia theater!

After seeing your gearbox with its blob of JB weld over the output shaft bearing boss, I took my gearbox back apart, to double check the tightness of the end nut on my output shaft. I turned out to be fine, but when I had the box apart, I didn't really scrutinize this aspect. It's funny how quickly you can do something the second time. It took me about 45 minutes to strip the box, torque the nut, and reassemble. Oh well, now I can be pretty certain the I won't have trouble with this.
