Change in Idler Shaft

To simplify and secure more positive lubrication of the reverse idler gear, the gear and idler shaft have been redesigned as follows:

The oil scoop has been removed from the idler shaft and a 3/16 inch hole has been drilled through the gear and bushing, the oil flowing directly through this hole onto the shaft. As the A-7138-B idler shaft has been obsoleted it will be necessary, when replacements are required, to use an A-7140 shaft. When the shaft is replaced it will also be necessary to replace the reverse idler gear A-7141 with a gear which has the drilled oil hole. However, it will not be necessary to install a new shaft should the idler gear only require replacing as the redesigned gear can be used on the old-shaft.
