Bad Luck

I bought my wife a set of 4.89 gears for her Zuk in October....got them new from a friend...he bought them a few years ago but never used them....

I installed them with new bearings, seals and gaskets....this was her daily driver....until Friday....when they started making noise...and before I could get it home they went BOOM! I pulled the case out and found the counter gear has teeth broken off it.....

it was full of oil and broken bits and metal....the bearings are still in good shape.....but I don't think I'll reuse them. So I guess she will have to go back to small tires for awhile......

Re: Bad Luck

howdy,
seems when you slam the gears they hold, but when you treat em nice they blow up, but that's the nature of the beast. well i guess it's just the nature of my beast.
