I broke the keyway in my auger gear box has anyone had to repair one looking for information on sealing it. I was thinking black rtv silicon on the housing. Any information on how it goes back together will be much appreciated.

You may try calling a specialty lubricants dealer. They should be able to spec out a compatible counterpart. Avoid EP oils, as they typically contain sulfur additives that can react with soft metals. Ideally you would want a non detergent/ non EP straight gear oil.
