no gasket, just silicone seal is fine. Motor oil or gear oil is fine. If you had no oil at all, you may have more problems down the road. Id put gear oil in it at this point.

Thanks, got the plate put back on and need to get the input shaft seal tomorrow as I messed it up a bit taking it off.

I'm kind of worried about more issues as well. I'm not sure what the ring gear is supposed to look like. The input shaft gears that wear stripped were not worn down much, maybe 1/8".

I bought this 4 years ago from a shop that refurbishes them with lifts, etc. Hard to believe it ran that long with no oil? And still not sure what the powder is?

Did you get all the powder out? The powder may be what used to be teeth on your input shaft.

Yes, poured it in a cup. There are some bigger shavings as well. Going out to finish it up (hopefully) now. I'm going to put 10 oz. of gear oil in it and hope for the best.

I'll try to post a picture later of the granulated teeth.

Old post but I am in this project also, serious question.....

HOW can there be metal shavings in the gear case BEHIND those bearings. They should be in the motor side of the assemble since that has nothing at all in the way.

(great picture, my shaft is definitely worn down, looks smooth compared to that. The motor side is not perfect, but may be okay for my needs)

Don't understand your question. Do you have metal shavings outside your rear-end, or are you asking about the two year old post who had metal shavings inside his rear-end? For the latter, usual wear and tear on the gears. Former, stripped input shaft?

It's better to keep one problem to one post. Copy quotes from as many posts as needed, but it's easier for us and you.

Sorry for the confusion....

I was trying to picture input shaft shavings getting inside the pumpkin....
past the bearings and seal.

Not important.

No, the powder is what used to hold the teeth on the input shaft. You need to reuse it, like Fix-O-Dent.
