But when i got my last cub I had replaced the missing gasket on the shifter and had dumped some gear oil in there just to lube up what i could get to. I cleaned out the pasages were those little lube holes are in the casting. Then I figured I would drain and replace all the oil in the trany. Boy was I surprised to see most of what came out was water. Dont know how long it was like that . I know it sat there in Maine for two years with out moveing. How come the winter freeze did not split the casting? I cleaned the trany out with deisel fule and refilled with gear oil. Doing a complete dissasembly is on the list for down the road. What would be the best way to prevent water intrusion on a out side cub? I dont want to tarp it but I guess if thats what it takes thats what ill have to do. My loboy is out side all the time an has never had this problem. How does the water get in there in the first place?

I had never drained this cub before and it has super think reddish stuff in it. It also has way to much. I had posted this already. So I picked up some HyTran and brake cleaner today to clean her out and fill her up to the proper level. I moved the drain pan containing the old stuff and wow, it did not move a bit. I have heard of molasses in January but I put the pan up on one edge and waited for it to move. It finally do but so slowly.
Wow no wonder shifting was tough.Thackery
