I was at Ultimate last night and they have about 6 or so kits on the shelf. I ended up picking up a spare Pro4 to use as parts. Okay...well, it actually started out to be a spare parts kit, now it's turned into a back-up kit. Maybe it'll turn into a second class kit...lol!!!!! This time I'm doing the bath treatment to the gears. Hoepefully, the spares will be out by then that I won't have to canibilize the 2nd kit.

That is what I'm talking about Erik. Thanks for the tip.

I have CA Debonder, but I'm afraid it might melt the plastic spacer and gear. Well, no hurt to try. I was going to throw that gear away anyway. If Debonder don't work, I might just drill that spacer out and the gear can still use for front one way.

Hope this helps. I think you are refering to the small plastic ring that goes into the bevel gear (73501) at the top of page 14.

All may not be lost if you can find some CA debonder.

Looks like you Guys in the US get a different manual to the rest of us...Ours is on page 15 and does'nt show the use of CA anywhere......what gives??
