  • Gearbox grind.

    I recently rebuilt a Westinghouse combo gearbox that I found in our parts cabinets. All the gears looked fine and the shims seemed fine. Now it makes a bit of a grumbling noise and runs a little warm. Should I be concerned?

    Take it off and drain it a little to see if the oil has discoloured from the gears grinding

      Why yes, we wax them everyday!

        Did you pull the rotor out change the big sealed bearing?
        Manufacturers of idiot proof products often underestimate the ingenuity of idiots!
