Gearbox was slowly failing and by end of season 2009 became too hard to use - we had torque at idle RPM or at full throttle, but never at mid RPM. The old owner claimed he had no idea about the trouble, but Google told me that most likely it was bronze clutch cone.
Leevene wanted 2000¤ (1000¤ for parts, 1000¤ for work) for the repair while whole new engine was about 5000¤.
On the photo: the gearbox is already removed. White stuff on the flywheel is hoarfrost, not corrosion. :-)
