Our customers ask the best questions and we are going to highlight a few here each month.
Question: What should I look for when draining my gear lube?
Answer: Inspect the gear lube for metal particles (lube will have a "metal flake" appearance). Drain lube into a clean pan/container. The presence of fine metal particles (resembling powder) in the gear lube indicates normal wear, but the presence of metal chips in the gear lube indicates the need for the gear housing to be disassembled and component inspection by an authorized dealer.
Note the color of the gear lube when draining. If the color is white or cream, it MAY indicate the presence of water in the lube. Gear lube which has been drained from a gear case recently in operation will have a yellowish color due to the lube agitation/aeration. Gear lube which is mixed with assembly lubricant (Special Lube 101 or 2-4-C) will also be creamy white in color. This is normal and should not be confused with the presence of water. If water is suspected to be present in the gearcase, a pressure check of the gearcase should be completed by an authorized dealer. Pouring a portion of the gear lube into a glass jar, and allowing the lube to settle, will allow any water in the lube to separate and settle to the bottom of the jar.
The presence of water in the gear lube indicates the need for inspection by an authorized dealer. The dealer will disassemble the gear housing and inspect the oil seals, seal surfaces, o-ring, water pump gaskets, as well as the gear housing componnents for damage.
Question: Is there a simple solution to water condensation in the fuel tank as a result of ethanol?
Answer: It is best to maintain a full tank of fuel when the engine is not in use. This will reduce the void space above the fuel and will reduce the flow of air in and out of the tank with changes in temperature. This will reduce condensation on the internal walls of the tank and will limit exposure of the ethanol in the fuel to humidity and condensation.
Question: Are there any additives that can allow the phase-separated mixture to remix when added to the fuel tank?
Answer: No, the only way to avoid further problems is to remove the water, dispose of the depleted fuel, clean the tank and start with a fresh, dry tank of fuel.
