Gus, please share whether or not you ran OEM lifetime lubricant and whether it was changed.

Gus,

Glad the warranty worked.

Please, tell me.

1. Was any gears difficult to engage when the gear-box was cold?

2. Did you hear a whining noise when disengaging any particular gear?

Best Regs,

David

Gearbox still works fine, just makes a whining noise in all gears when accelerating and decelerating (not very loud but noticeable)

Then it is probably not the sync rings, I think. Is there enough oil in the gearbox?

Just curious: How do you know it is the gearbox and not the propeller shaft or the differential?
