so im going to attempt mounting and running the box upside down, and install a new vent line, and plug up the old one.
Well, not really "upside down" as the input side is higher then the output side vertically, but I will flop it over, so the "pan" is facing upwards and the selector shafts are facing down.
I have found and secured a CDL locking dicso 2 LT230 and its on its way.
my only real concern is lubrication, and seals.
should I adjust the fill level to ensure "wetted" gears stay wetted when at rest on level ground ?
or just put in the same amount of gear oil the manual specifies ?
also concerned with inter sling and whatnot getting oil into all the places it needs to lubricate.
mostly concerned with the selector shaft seals, they were not designed to be submerged in oil all the time.
anything else on the "top" ( which is normally not submerged in oil ) which in this installation would be on the "bottom" that I should be worried about ?
any and all feedback is welcome !
