Flushing LT230

After pulling the PTO cover off of a new-to-me 1.2 TC, it looks like muddy sludge in there.

Any harm in putting brake cleaner/diesel/gasoline in there to flush it?

It's sitting on my garage floor.

Only if you thoroughly flush it out again. Using brake cleaner should be ok since it evaporates. I'd consider opening up the bottom cover and just manually cleaning the heck out of it. Or put in fresh oil and replace after a few hundred miles.

Yes, just pulled off the bottom cover. I think I'll avoid solvents in the case. I can't figure out how to get the "supposed to be cross drilled" gear out. I think I'll order one of those next. My input shaft on the LT77 didn't look that bad.

Pulling the input gear is easy - just undo the bolts on the round cover on the back, and then maybe two screws underneath, and the rear plate will come off. The input gear just slides right out after it.

Almost got it. Appears to be a bit more turning to get it out of a 1.2TC.

Got any pictures? I'm not liking the sound of this. Even with the bearings welded shut they come out pretty easy.

got it out. Read on another forum that the 1.4 and 1.6 come out easily. The 1.2 requires some turning and twisting. It came out pretty easily after turning and turning. No resistance once the intermediate gears lined up.

Now to drift off the bearings without screwing them up and order a new gear.

Dirty Dirty though.
