Got it. Thanks

I'm going to throw my 2 cents in at this point.
Don't be tempted to lube "self lubricating" bushings with WD40 or other penetrating oils, they are actually solvents and will remove the oils that impregnate the bushings consequently causing them to fail prematurely.
Stick with motor oils.

Here is a link to a thread on the 60's style gearboxes that shows a few things not covered here.

1961 10ML55 Impeller seal replacement

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I'm working now on a blower with this gearbox. Interesting that it seems to use hypoid gears (offset spiral bevel) rather than a worm and wheel.
