Very stiff 4th gear

Hi All,

Had the 'very stiff 4th gear' thing happen the other day, so had a nose on here to see if there were any threads about it.

There was one thread that mentioned popping the end casing off to clean the gunk out of there, so I did that this morning and once the rain stops, I'll do an oil change.

Purpose of this thread, was to show the before and after pics, in case it's of any use to anyone going forward.

End casing removed

And what the box looks like with this removed

End casing cleaned

Inside the end casing

and after it was cleaned

The casting on these is pretty bad, but what can you do.

The oil that came out was a right mess, so I'm looking forward to getting some fresh stuff in there later.

Will report back once the oil change is done on if it's cured the problem.


Character is what you have left when you've lost everything you can lose.
