10 bolt - missing 2 from gear change
« on: May 08, 2023, 11:05:34 pm »
I was changing gears out from a 342 back to a 373.  When I was unscrewing two of the nuts connecting the gear, the stud came out.  I am missing two.  Is it ok to temporarily fill the holes with a s screw stud to prevent the gear oil from leaking? Would I need to rebuild or replace the axle? Thanks in advance

Not sure why you are missing 2. But if they are stripped, you could Helicoil them.

Thanks. When I was loosening the nuts, the stud and nut came off as they must have snapped.

So the stud is broken? Or did it just come out with the nut?
