Inside a British Seagull gear box

Most Seagull gearbox openings produce a mess of rust and rubbish from years of running dry, only water does the lubrication and cooling?


For a change the last two that were stripped actually had some oil in them, both were leaking due to over filling, plus the wrong grade of oil being used.

 
These Seagull gearboxes need part filling only and with a 140 grade of oil which we have in stock.
 
The gear box is filled via a plastic screw in plug and when the engine is upright, not when it is lying down, so the box is then just half full.
 
 
This 102 series gearbox is some sixty years old, it has survived well internally but has a bent drive shaft, a spare shaft and gear was used to replace the one in the picture.
