I can buy all new gaskets, seals, and bearing s for 70 bucks per gearbox and get rid of the growl, but I have five gearboxes. They still work, just louder. I can get the gaskets only for 10 bucks a pair roughly. Then I can just get fresh oil in them and run them, but would still need seals. I mean what is this, am I crazy, they spin 3000 rpm, and are used in the tractor drive train. Is anyone have any thoughts as to the best fix on this now extinct gearbox?
If I want growl free it is 70 bucks a gearbox and I have to rebuild them.
If I want to shut them up a little it would be seals, gaskets, and fresh oil. Probably 30 bucks a gearbox.
Replacement is not an option anymore due to no new ones available, and used will need the same treatments most likely.
