Did the job :-) Apparently in water above 80 degrees C the glue becomes elastic like and can then be removed. He didn't advise this approach, as he didn't know whether the carbon deck would hold up to this!

A pic below shows how I've taken over the dining room table to build my Surikarn Excuse the Serpent box on the table

Rtypec, you're the man!!

Worked perfectly - you know your stuff!

Hi Mark,

Enjoy your life with TB Evo III SE. Just make sure you have enough spare front 1 way gear.

I hope I don't express it wrong in English.

The front one way gear hold the spur gear. The spur gear stop the bearing movment.

I'm seeing this more often Hmm, what is it that breaks? Is it the gear (the cog) or the whole unit?

Yeah, it is a really soft set up huh? The front end is way soft.

Also, since you have the OG Evo3, you might look into getting the carbon fiber backing plate for the front one way gear. I don't have the part number on me but it will "help" support the front gear in some cases.
