RA gearbox oil level
« on: July 07, 2020, 05:41:21 PM »
Bit of an odd one for you guys on a forestry forum but I figure some of you like me, have tractors and implements etc plus I suspect this group's knowledge is good for it.

Was mulching the other day (aka flail mower in US?) And the rotor stopped spinning. I fished the drive shaft out and it was snapped in two. Tacked straightened welded, all back together running smoothly.

Late in the evening by this time, I went to fill the gearbox with oil a bit autonomously filling til it came out the hole as normal. By this stage I realised the hole is at the top, I'd stuffed 4L(over 1gal) in there and the filler hole is above the breather. There's no sight glass and the only other plug is at the very bottom of the casting. Where the heck do you fill these RA gearboxes to? And how do you even tell, I can't see through the hole  ???
