The ongoing saga of the poor ol'r71. I removed the final drive cover and it is broken under the stabilizer mount. Does anyone know if the early r51/3 covers will fit?

I am away from my books, but

I am away from my books, but if you look up the part numbers in the respective parts books, you'll know they are the same if they have the same part number.

Just an FYI. The r51 final drive cover is identical to the r71/61/66 finals. Useful tip.

To revive an old topic

I've recently found out that the earliest R71 and R51s had a manufacturing update as the castings were weak. The revised/strengthened final drive has an "S" cast (not stamped) into the cover. This was to alert service personnel that this final drive was the newer, stronger style.
