Another Lotus Esprit Turbo gearbox failure. Pinion bearing exploded. Lot of damage. All due to wrong design for load on crown wheel. HML has found solution. Reversed set. No easy rebuild.
Couldn’t find right pattern.See first 2 photos ( yellow marker ). Photo with white marker is from manufacturer. Perfect pattern. I found out the original gearbox casing, with exploded pinion bearing, has no visible damage but obvious there is no good alignment. New housing, all is good now. So beware with your original Citroen CWP. It runs on WRONG side!!!!
