Well, we received the parts from Europe today. The boys are shown here as they install the new shaft. The part that broke was a shaft that joins the upper gear box to the lower planetary that you see in the picture. Without that shaft the bullwheel couldn't turn.
The problem with Silverlode last year was the ring gear that sits just inside the planetary you see here. Two different problems. You might remember seeing the entire bullwheel and planetary assembly while it was removed from Silverlode last year.
I enjoyed talking to those of you who were interested enough to stop and ask what had happened. We are on schedule for Bonanza to be open this weekend.
