    Comet F/N/R tranaxle from manco 308

    Does any one have info on an old comet F/N/R transaxle? I have one on my Maco Quester 308 (on witch i have done a lot of research and if you wan't to contact me if you have one leave a reply saying so), but I can only find info on the new type gearboxes not trans axle. This was off of the '85 model Manco Quester 308 not the '84. Neither image is from my trike but the first image is what I have andClick image for larger version.

    I just got a monco quester 310 last week and I think mine is like the first pic the best I can tell. I know itís not like the second photo. I havenít taken it apart yet but I plan to. The shifter is really floppy. I hope I can still use it. I like the idea of having f-n-r.

    This is cool. I had no idea that they had a reverse on them.

    There are a couple variations of drives still available, but probably nothing that'll be a bolt-on.

    When Manco was building trikes, they used whatever was available at a certain price. Be ready to cut/weld, to modify anything else into position.

    Reverse isn't the end-all-be-all for a lightweight machine. It's usually easy enough to just push/lift it to where you want it. A 600lb, 4x4 ATV needs reverse, trikes don't, unless someone is actually using them to back trailers up.

    Mine is leaking gear oil around the gear shift lever. Itís annoying but itís old so I just add oil to when needed. I like having the reverse.

    Wow i can actually help with that! If we do have the same model the leak is caused by one faulty o-ring one your gearshift shaft.

    Oh thanks. Does the O ring go on the little shaft and then the lever go back on or does the O ring go inside the gear box?

    Would you happen to have a picture of where the O-ring goes? Does it go inside the gear box or can it be slipped on to the shaft on the outside?
