I checked my Laterals and man was I way off on my last post, my total travel from full reverse to full forward at the throttle is 6.5 inches.. and it looks like I can even tighten that up some..

One band, and I need new thingamagigers that are brass in color and the seals sit in, on the case halves. Thereís 4 all together, and yes to the 50 hardness steel also. Thanks for the advice.    Richards appreciated it to $$$$$$$$$$$$$. But weíre going forward now banana banana banana popcorn popcorn

If it's not hardened (like factory ones were), the pins that go through the eyebolts could (probably would) wallow out or elongate the hole over time. Do it right now or do it right later.

I will make that call tomorrow. They did want to know why the laterals had to be made out of 60 grade hardened metal.  I said I donít know but the guy that made the drawling has more time at this than we do, so I suggest we just follow the drawings and do it.

Glad you're opening it up to make sure & find out what's been going on. You may not like what you find or it may be better than you thought. Only way to find out is to open the vault.

As long as you Didn't run it out of oil I would think your good to go . That seal is High enough there should have still been oil to keep it alive !
Nice part about a Higher vent is you can run just a Little more oil in it and not have it blowing out.
