Can I tell if mine are steel based off the model #? Just looking at the color it's hard to tell. In fact, the colors of the gears look different between the two shafts. One has that darker brown look and the other has a brighter steel look to it. I can easily see that I don't have the brass bushings. It's two key setup.

You cannot tell everything by the "color" of the gears.

Birdman is correct , if they are brown or even "goldish" colored then yes they are cast gears.
However, there are alot of "silver" looking cast gears as well.

The steel gears you can EASILY see machine marks in them.

If you look at a known cast gear, and hold a steel gear up to it you will see the difference IMMEDIATELY.

If you are holding the two gears side by side, and your still unsure about it, most likely not a steel gear.
The difference really is that easy to tell.

Not a advange...It is a MUST when using gear lube in place of grease. If not done, when tranny heats up from use, oil expands, as oil expands it increases the case pressure...without a vent it will find it's own way to release pressure...thru seals and bearings.

wish ida seen this BEFORE testing, now i cant get the dern thing to quit leaking, only been raced once...

Zach
If it leaking out the input get a new seal. Get a few. You will need them anyway.

The install is the key. You need to split the case and remove the input gear from the input shaft. Install new seal. Push input shaft UP into the case. Outside in. Then put gear back on in the case. If you push it in from the top. Inside to out. The keyway will cut the seal.
