Default Arins to Catapiller transformer

I told you all a while ago I was given an old Areins YT10 with a Honda 14hp
engine.
Well I finally got some time to mess with it a bit today.
It looks like 4 out of 5 days this week is rain so I maybe able to drop the rear end this week and have a go at it.
The plan is to UN-seize the rear-end and get the old Honda a thumping.
I am then going to paint it CAT Yellow with the black strip and get some Cat stickers for it.

Why do such a thing you ask? Just because I can.

Well it rained here today and I mean it rain , So I spent the day working on my Tractor Project.
I dropped the drive train today and got it a part.
I soon discovered why it had stopped working, Grease and Water do not mix very well .
I have removed the gears and marked them so I can put them back in correctly.
The grease is thick like putty and the stuff is gummed up in between the gears.
I have been scooping it out and am going to have to soak everything over several days and then pressure wash them after.

Isnt it amazing how some gummed up grease can really play havoc with a piece of equipment! How is it running now since the cleanup?

Well I got the gear box all cleaned up this afternoon.
I had it soaking in parts cleaner all week,so I took the parts out today and pressure washed them.
I then detail cleaned with a brush and sprayed them with Fluid Film and dry fitted the gears,
I spend two hours spraying (Silicone lube) and tapping each gear to get them all to spin freely.
I now need to get some Gear grease to repack the case, which should be fun as they are not designed to be re-greased. There is no grease nipples so I think I will have to refill it via the shift lever hole.

Can you put in a grease nipple with a drill and then thread the hole?

I not really sure if I want to mess with the cast Alum.
I am fearful of cracking it.
Been way to busy lately to do any work on it.
But I will keep you posted.

I do wonder though if the grease has no where to escape, if it would be such a good idea to install one though.
