Just spent the best part of 2 hours trying to change a gear cable-

You know the one. The one at the rear. The one thats hard to reach. The one thats got the seized grub screw. Its also got the rounded off grubscrew......The one where you end up drilling it out.

Thats it- after 51 years I've had it. so if anyone wants to buy an early TV175 S3 its yours for £5k firm. PM me

Chris

p.s. the cable has been renewed.

I know that feeling Chris, you get a big job like changing a crank which you can fly through and then you get something as simple as getting a exhaust off which can takes bloody ages- joys of lambretta's eh? :) Paul

changed - now ready for someone to take it off my hands. I'm too old and too knackered.

If you haven't got another scooter,you'll miss it.Nothing to tinker with on these long cold winter nights.By the way I'm 70 in January,messing about with mine keeps the old grey matter going.
