Gear lube coming UP

Mon Sep 06, 2004 2:34 pm

Ran Jay for a while yesterday, and gear lube started coming out around the stick shift, on top. It was white/milky... Gonna have to take a look at the parts manuals and try to figure out what to do before I get into that job.

Anybody got a "while you're in there..." or "look out for..." suggestion?

Sounds to me that the tranny is over full. A water mixture of about 5:1 :lol: :lol:
The fill level plug is on the left side (right for JB :lol: :lol: ) of the tranny just behind the casting date. It holds 3 1/2 pints or 56 oz.

Step one is to drain it and flush it out good with kerosene.

Thank you
