RE:Harrier GearBox Problem   Woo ! Voltage Stabilizer ?! Could you elaborate your gear problem when shifting from 3rd to 4th in further details ? If same with mine, RM 200 is a cheap solution.

RE:Harrier GearBox Problem   Hi All. I'm new here. Own a Heli 98 3.0 V6. Experienced 3rd to 4th gear prob before, visited Tom's but couldn't solve it. Could say i solved it by installing a Voltage Stabilizer (pivot copycat) RM 200 only. But still felt a little jerking during gear change, Suggestion anyone?? [:D]

RE:Harrier GearBox Problem   Very comforting to know. So I am not alone. I will be driving my 98/01 Harrier for a few more years, after my "investment" into my gearbox, etc. Unless, I strike lottery.

So, what a relief for me to hear that. Now, I'm back to all [:D]
so the japanese engineer imply to just let it be?
yes

RE:Harrier GearBox Problem   Learnt a new phrase today : "delay gear upshift during cold". It is a design for better FC and to protect the environment ( I guess it causes more CO2 emission ). Confirmed by sources in Mercedes Benz, in addition to the Japanese engineer in Toyotsu. So, all my worries are gone now.[:D]
