Fitting a MD7B in an older Ballad

Hi everyone,

I would like to exchange my MD6A with a MD7B. Does any one have any experience with this.
Do I need to redo the foundation?

I noticed that the reverse gear on the MD7B has a slight angle (6 degrees) on the axle)

Thanks for any help!

MD7A fit MD6A reverse gear box?

Hi everyone,

I am looking into replacing my MD6A with a MD7A and would like to know if it will bolt onto the old reverse gear casing(shaft drive) or if I have to make modifications. Are there any changes needed for the shaft drive?

Thanks for any help.

Gas installation for cooker

Hi, I want to replace my Optimus stove with a gas stove and need to make a gas installation from scratch. I have a guide as to where and how to install the gas bottles (under the rear cockpit hatch). Any tips as to how to route the copper piping, place gas taps, leak testers etc..? I am a new Ballad...
