it is the same drawing. I believe it is one I might have sent to Bill to post.
Looks like you will need a new gearbox (ouch) from Amel.
I was fortunate to get the last two disassemble gearboxes in the USA from Emmerson Electric.
Before you mount the new gearbox, I would suggest you drill and tap a 5 mm hole on the port and starboard side of the gearbox. The autoprop grease adapter will fit in these holes. Drill one high and the other low. I fill through the lower drill hole and wait till clean grease comes out of the upper drill hole. I then install a short nylon bolt. They come in bags of 50.
I have done this on both gearboxes, and the genoa furler.
