    My tranny has taken all of the teeth off the 39T gear again. I have 2 coming. Is there anything I can do to help it live? I thought the LRP 32 took the first one out but I am running a .28 now.
    The last time I ordered a new tranny and changed the guts out so the OWB, bearings and clutch are almost new.

    Gear problems almost always because mesh is off, debris or sudden stoppages. I recently killed a diff pinion/spur when bearings failed and mesh changed. I'm curious what you find out. Good luck.

    The new gears came today. What can I use to clean the goop out of the transmission?

    Denatured alcohol works great and is safe on all plastics

    And try to find a pre-X gearbox. The X gearbox has a flaw because of the way it is built.
    The older ones will work better and if you have a 2 speed there is no need to take the top off.
