PostSubject: so i went to take the bins out   Sat Oct 09, 2010 6:43 am

walkiing past my car noticed a rather dark puddle comming from under my car...

Oil... smell it..cat piss... Gearbox oil...

look up to where i reversed the car into her parking space on the rare gentle drive home from the shops another HUGE Puddle

then a trail to where she is now and then i see the rest...

the trail down the street

down the next street

at which point i gave up

checked all seals on the box... all fine..
check drivers drive shaft boot... fine

then i cut my finger on somthing sharp? wtf?!

a rather large hole in the casing of the gearbox!! JOY!

Just dropped off my 2 spare williams gearboxes for a rebuild...

Weird! Normally a box makes a horrible noise without oil! Glad you got more boxes to rebuild though!

"Built4Track, leaving trails of gearbox oil over Britain since 2008."

I did the same, box blew up on a main road and I coasted into a garage at 2am in the morning, got up at 6 and towed it home. They were none the wiser apart from the trail from halfway down the road; the massive puddle of box oil in their forecourt and the trail back down the main road!
