You should send that picture somewhere to have a jigsaw puzzle made from it!

The art work idea is a good one.

Put the pile on Craigslist or Facebook and sell them to a local artist for scrap price. They would love to have that stuff.

I zoomed in to look at shift drums to see if any had chunks blown out. I think I saw one with a chunk missing. The third gear lobe on my 2006 shift drum had a nice chunk blown out, made shifting from 2nd to third a bit of a chore; but I did not know that was the cause at the time. Then it ended up taking one more hard hit with a ghost shift that bent a fork enough that dogs made contact when it was not in that gear. There was no more "I think something is seriously wrong", it was absolute that something was seriously wrong. It did not sound like a newbie learning to drive a big rig grinding gears, but it did sound like I was moving the shift lever just a little without the clutch in to let the gears "kiss". Pics of the bent shift fork are hard to tell they are bent. It took comparing them with new forks on the slide and a tape measure to see the nearly 1/5" offset one had. Maybe "Forged in Fire" would want some of that too. Just think of the challenge someone could have turning one of those gears plus something else into a nice bowie in just a few hours....

Monetarily wise, it was hardly worth taking it all to a recycling center. It weighed 325lbs, for a total value of $17.88. I did it for Mother Earth :)

If your shift drum was magna fluxed, there would be a zillion cracks in that area. For lack of a better word, what you were hearing is called "dog clatter."
