Questions for Ray

Recommended Posts

Hey Ray; I put new seals and bearings in my BGB on the 3416 H. Now I got a leak from evidnetly the right hand side of the box. Fluid dropped about 1-2 inches in about 3 hours of running. While working on her, i noticesd that the right hand spacer, next to the hydro pulley had a slight groove in it from the seal so I reversed it. Will this leak wear together the more I run it , or what? All the best

Did it leak after you reversed the spacer? The spacer is about a 1-1/4" long and if reversed the seal should be riding on unworn metal. The BGB is only suppose to have 16 oz. (pint) of oil. Was the BGB overfilled to begin with? I would try it after reversing the spacer and if still leaks with oil to proper fill level, I would replace the seal.
