    Exclamation Another Gearbox Problem

    About 1 month ago i released a post saying that my gearbox was making funny noises.

    After cleaning out my gearbox, the entire rc, changing all the gears, putting new lube in it, and doing everything else everyone told me to do, the rc still makes the same noise as if NOTHING has changed.

    Someone please help me because i'm getting very fustrated, and im starting to think that it might not be the gearbox.

    thanks

    If it is a high pitch squeal type of noise then it might be a loose slipper clutch. Tighten down that lil nut on your slipper shaft and see if that helps.

    its not a high pitch squeal, it more a sound that something plastic is being crunched over and over over again

    could be a missing tooth on your spur gear.

    is your top shaft of the tranny, or the shaft on your motor bent? look into that... take the motor out, does it still do it?

    Got video? The noise may be normal, you will have gear noise. The gears are meshed together and there's no lubricant to quiet them. Just a wild guess.

    I would say just do a complete tear down and inspect everything before you re-install man. I'm sure its something simple that you're overlooking.

    Start taking things off to find where the noise is coming from. Spin things by hand fast slow until you can isolate it. No noise with tires off. Is the noise there with the tires on and the drive shaft disconnected? How are the hex's? How is your gear mesh? Noise with the motor out? Tires rubbing on something? How about a cracked rim slipping on the hex?

    never mind got it fixed, i ended up have one of the ball bearings in the gearbox being shredded which caused a domino affect of bad things in my gearbox.

    Thanks for the help anyway!
