Albins carnage


Recommended Posts

On the last forum I had a topic about Albins gear noise.

Well fast forward a few weeks, a delivery to Weddle, and another couple weeks and it’s torn apart.

Here is what was found.

Mind you this is a brand new Albins, with less then 500 miles on it. 
 

Weddle has diagnosed the issue, can you?

Not meshing properly?

I think this is a reasonable guess. By looking at the gears it looks to be riding on the corner of the gear and not the face. But this isn’t what they said is wrong.

It was not boke in properly ?  If that's even a thing,  Hopefully you do not have to pay a dime to get this fixed.

Sorry gents I headed out to a fishing tournament and left you hanging...

 

Weddle said it was in fact an oil issue. They installed 140wt oil which is adequate, however they now recommend 190 wt.

It did not have a trans pump installed. And if in fact it was an oil issue, I’m going to guess that it was from wheeling uphill... otherwise I can’t make sense of it.

I have a pump coming back with the trans..

And no it was not cheap in any way... 😬

That doesn't sound like you should be responsible.

Definitely a bad day and looks like more  lack of oil than and oil weight issue - there was some serious het there  and it took away the heat treat from looks of the gears ....

glad this time it won't happen again  - expensive lesson for who ever filled the oil if its the wrong oil or just for not having a pump  😞
