Questions on Bevel Gear Box

Recommended Posts



Doing the maintenance on my Simplicity checking the fluids. On the BGB that Street L on the Box is 7/16" and half way down on the box itself.

Any tricks on how to remove it, save fabricating a special tool?

You wanting to take out the street L or just the plug out of the top of it?

I just use a short wrench on the plug.

If you want the L out, might be easier to take the entire cover off.

The L is a calibrated value for filling, I wouldn't take it off. There should be a drain plug below it. For better filling, I like to open the top vent plug and leave the L open to tell when it's full.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
