Which aftermarket spur gears will work with the Mi3? Will the RW ones work?

There are a few guys modifying RW gears to work. Otherwise, no, the Mi3 uses a specific spur because of the single sided layshaft design. If I'm not mistaken, the Schumacher Mi3 spurs are made for Schumacher by RW.

Like Jon said the MI3 are a proprietary design, some are modifying RW gear, but I have stock off all gears offered 90, 96, 106, 114, 116, 118, which will cover you from a 17.5 down to a 2.5 mod on FDR.

RIT dye works great to help keep the car looking clean. IMO it just looks like junk when all the white gets dirty. I dyed all my pullies and spurs black in about 5 minutes.

Here it is , i hope it helps

Well i have a over stock of regular Spur gears that I didnt want to let to waste so i came up with a very easy and simple solution to run regular spurs on the MI3 and the it took me less than 5 minutes and less than $2.00 to make. I went to the locar Advance Auto parts store and picked up a "hose tee" for engine vacumm lines part # 47341 for $1.88, then I cut a thin piece of the end (about 3mm). The bearing for the layshaft fits in it perfectly, then i slide the standard spur (after I drilled 2 holes on the spur) and tighten it. Now I can use any standard spur gear on the car Its very easy and the spur gear is alligned perfectly.

Hey guys, I've got some winter rubbers I need to store until next winter. Any suggestions on keeping them from drying out? I was thinking just coating with tweak and putting them in a well sealed bag.

Not to be a copycat but I believe I may tear my car apart this week and dye all my stuff too, it really makes the car look nice.
