    Re: Idea for new part

    Scott Paper Co. makes blue paper shop towels. When I worked on 70's, I cut them in half, folded the half double (long and thin), folded the half in half (short and thin) and used a thin piece of cardboard to insert it in the drip pan under the gearbox. It can be a bit messy if you don't clean the pan first, but the end of the towel sticks out of the pan a little so that the towel can be checked for saturation and changed if necessary. Its easy and quick. The perfect job for the night man.

      jer, you use to work on "b" machines....throw a maxi pad in there. i just fold up a shop rag a few times and put it in the pan. i check them when i grease my stop blades.

            jeff, i leave a shop rag in the pan. we got the 90xl upgrade so our motor mount differently. is there a potential hazzard, that i should be aware of, with rags in the tray?

              Ain't it annoying when you get oil drippage on the plows, but he pan isn't even full? It seeps out through the holes. I now use sealing washers on the heads of the bolts (head down, nut on top), plus a thin rubber washer between the pan and the motor housing.

              The sealing washer I mentioned is the type made of steel with rubber bonded to one side. It's available from McMaster-Carr and most other industrial suppliers.

                        Replace leaky seals and gaskets to avoid drippage.

                            Brunswick recommends Trany stop leak,I drained all my combo boxes last summer and along with new oil addded 1 shot glass of NAPA stop leak for trannys and stopped most of the leaks,don't know for how long but my drip pans are dry,use seals from AMF, they seem to fit a little better than the ones from elseware.

                              Don -
                              If you would stop ripping your 022 dist output seals when you install them then they wouldn't leak. It doesn't matter what company's seal you buy - there are standard sizes of seals in the seal industry. Just find the cheapest one that your distributor can get for you. That's all.

                              As for your stop-leak notion: 1) Thinning the oil is quite the opposite of any advice I've ever received, and not relative to any of the experience I've had rebuilding gearboxes or assembling hundreds of new Vantage gearboxes.
                              2) Auto transmissions do not contain ball bearings. I don't know if Brunswick gearboxes do or not. At any rate, the additives that swell seals in stop leak additives will adhere themselves to ball bearings in heat and cause wear and premature failure. I look forward to filling your bearing order.

                              No seal is 100% perfect. There has to be some infantesimal gap in order for the shaft to turn and not rip the seal. The thicker the oil, the less-likely it is to get through that gap. The compromise is reached between where leakage is minimized and the oil gets to the top of the gearbox quickly. This is what AMF (or GE or maybe Westinghouse) engineers determined to be the optimum weight for this gearbox - 156W.

                              Vantage has improved on this by 1) Making it viscous enough to qualify over 156 weight but making it as light as though it were 90 weight.
                              2) Adding detergent to a traditonally non-detergent gearbox so that it will clean your gearbox at the same time as it makes the thing run. It's still a good idea to clean your gearboxes with kerosene before pouring in a bottle of V280, but V280 will help clean the crap out of your gearbox.

                              I don't know if it will clean the crap from stop-leak out of your gearbox. Certainly, it will take a while to work. Nobody has done that before. Leave it to you to apply suggestions from Brunswick (if that's true) to AMF machines.

                              People like Deadwood make good suggestions that are heeded. People like you make poor suggestions that are discarded.

                              Chad.
