Transmission Flush?

Postby Eric85 » Sun Mar 17, 2013 4:58 pm

As a lot of you know I have the thread "trying to save a super c" going and still working on the engine.

But While I am working on the engine and waiting for parts I was wondering about the transmission and what might
need to be done. Its been sitting out side for 30 years.

Should I just drain it and refill?

Or is there something, kerosene maybe, that I can clean it out with.

Yes, you can flush it with kero or diesel. But, I would wait until you have the engine running properly so that you can drive it around a little with the kero in the transmission. Transmission capacity is almost 5 gallons.
