I'm looking for advice from someone who has carried out a full replacement of the bearings in a reduction box. I need to remove the reduction box housing plug, it's very rusty and thin and now has at least one pinhole so it will need replaced. Also the inner bearing is very noisy so needs replaced.
Has anyone used the plastic replacement plugs? Did you successfully install them? Coolairvw sell steel replacements so I'll probably go for that unless advised otherwise.
What did you use to seal them back in? I'm assuming a standard instant gasket product or is there something more specialist I should use?
Cheers
Colin
