 bleeding gear oil

Read the same advice on Corn Head, or 00 grease, and 50 50 grease oil. Might get you by for the time being but have to recheck frequently, and sub optimal compared to being in oil bath as gears will fling lube out as they spin.

 bleeding gear oil

Watch for wire being picked up and it cutting the bottom seal out of the gear box. Another way it can happen if you get the it way over filled and the vent is not able to allow it to seep out when it heats up can damage the seal.

Now the plate..it slips onto the spline shaft if I am right, correct? First I think you must get it where you can work on it and with the cutter being secure. If you must flip it upside down. Take a good penetrating oil and spray it and keep it wet for a day or two if possible. You may want to take a hammer and keep taping the sleeve that is on the gearbox shaft to help break the rust that is hold it on the spline. If you have torch you would heat the thick sleeve on the stump jumper that is sled on the gear box spline shaft.
You might be able to design a simple puller for this with say a piece of channel iron and large bolts. But heat can be a wonderful helper. kt
