    Re: 1/1 removal time

    speaking of 1 to 1's does anybody pull a subassembly only to fix an oil leak? i have about 5 machines that have really bad leaks and i'm tired of refilling the gearbox and putting new rags in the drip pan. seems to me i'll save time and money if i just pull it and be done with it. and kevin, i'll try roscoes way and let you know....thanks, shame

      Hey Shame
      Have you tried tightening the allen bolts that mount the 1-1 housing to the gearbox?
      Sometimes that will help stop leaks.
      If it is leaking from the seals here is a trick I learned that will slow down the leak and sometimes eliminate it.
      Add some STP oil treatment to the gearbox.
      It is a lot thicker than 90 weight but still slick as snot.
      It at least will buy you some time until you can change the gasket and seals at your convenience.

        Rarely will one find the 1to1 seal leaking, as Grambo said it's most often the cover bolts loose, however if it has the paper gasket, with the bolts run loose, the gasket is most probably torn. One more reason to use the latest technology in sealing. ie-RTV.
        An aside to tightning the bolts, as these are grade eights, which stand little flexing, one is better advised to back a loose one out and replace it, rather then tighten it only to have the head break off on the last turn.
        Then you get to pull the whole unit.
        Believe me it happens, most often when it was the last thing you were going to do at that job.
        Most leaks are in the 2to1 and the mount bolts on the 4to1,and with a model A time delay stem o-ring, and lastly the drain plug not having teflon tape on it.
        STP I stay away from in a leaking gearbox, it will wreck a carpet.

            Try using 90-140 gear oil in gearboxes to reduce minor leaks.....
