    I did a quick search, but have not found any info regarding the quality of gearing be produced today as replacements for the AMC gearbox on the norton. I the currently available gearing of higher quality than that originally supplied? / the same ? or we don't know.

    and has anyone produced a set of helical replacements ?

    Helical gearsets would require for-real thrust bearings. Not happening.

    after posting my get up in the morning before coffee thought, i realised after the coffee kicked in that there was no provision for thrust on the gears & brgs, which of course would result from a helical set...

    mmm coffee helps to get the brain going..
