What would hinder replacing the 3 x 3 L-shaped liftarm by a 3 x 0.5 straight one placed vertically? I mean, the gear holder part is closed at the bottom to this reinforcement seems kind of useless to me.
Exactly what I was thinking.

To be honest I have never seen this actually used (at least not in an official set), and in my experience this is a very bad spur gear, because they frequently get stuck in one another.

I can only think of one, the 8000 star wars pit droid.

look at book two, step 19 if the ball pin is in the correct hole.
it looks as would it be in the wrong hole.
if not it must be an other problem with the pushrod

It's used that way in the B-model for 8069. It doesn't perform too badly and I haven't had any problems with it that way. I also had the Pit Droid and that worked fine too.

Slightly more on topic, my Unimog's shipped today, I'm slightly jealous of those of you who got it early  :tongue:

Did anyone notice that the second book of the building instruction is not available at the official site? Maybe they are changing something in it?
Maybe they just forgot...

Book 2 is available here

For those who have 8110 as well as the 8868 Air Claw Rig, how do they compare in terms of play value?  I have an 8868 (love it) which has similar functionality (minus the suspension and the winch), and I haven't yet decided if I should get this one too.

8043 needed changes, 8110 doesn't need them so much, they are just desireable :grin:

How can you see if your Unimog is the "old" or the "new" type? Or doesn't that really matter, because I recieve my Unimog tomorrow.  :classic:

I have finally bought a Unimog and this model is just awesome ! It's also my first pneumatic set so i'm in love for it ! Nobody speak over that, but lego have just produced new 16T clutch without guts (?). So, I think that this new parts can show if you own a new or a "old" Unimog.

I will take pictures of these new 16T as soon as I take it apart :)

Do you mean this Gear? (not a clutch)

Its been around since last year (8053&8043) though so you can't tell anything from it.

I do understand you, indeed the unimog has some things that could be better, like the turning circle, and changes that are desireable like a working steering wheel, but it does not need any changes in order to get the bloody thing working reliably in the first place  :laugh:

I expected that already when seeing the instructions for 8070, that already did not show those little teeth. They would't make such a change if there were no reason to :)

By the way, does the new 16t clutch gear fit on a normal pin the same way as the 20t free gear does?

That is why the one with the 'splines' is obsolete.
