Service & Repairs
These older gearboxes are very robust units and are in many ways better than new style gearboxes when considering the lubrication systems and heat dissipation due to larger and heavier housings compared to current modern designs. These original gearboxes have lasted for many years and are excellent candidates for repair. In most cases the life of these gearboxes can be extended for several years.
