Why isnt the gearbox greaseable?

    I have a 1075 and each year it needs a little coersion to get it spinning off the bat (fine from there on) well this year it was still pretty stiff. I drilled a hole in the bottom and installed a zerk fitting and gave it about half a tube of grease and it smoothed right up. I am just going to put a rubber grommet on the outer hole. why dont they come like this? whenever i replace the trans in these the grease is always dried up and almost nonexistant. is it just so they can sell more aftermarket parts?

    We just did the same on a 210 and a 575.

    Interested in this (especially as I have the old design with not removable plate) . Where you worried about drill shavings in the casing?

    I taped a small nozzle from an airgun to my shop vac and sucked out most of them, being aluminum, I am not to worried about the tiny bit that might be left. Ill get some pics up soon. if you do it with the trans out of the assembly, you could pull the backing plate and take them out that way too, which I did on my old one that needs a rebuild just to see how it would work out, before I ruined a good trans.

    Also my motor just died today (of course right after I put it all back together with a new coat of paint) so I ll get some pics with it torn apart and whatnot

    I would get a rebuild kit for the trans that's the best option comes with bearings seal clips I found it on eBay

    Well for people that are to lazy there is a place that will rebuild them for you for 210 that I found for the spinner transmission. You send to them and they will do everything for you and send it back and then you just put it together
